I'd look for an st if you're looking to spend 7k. the svt is a nice car, but its slow in comparison to new cars. I got spanked by an old man in a V6 Malibu 3 days ago... Look for anything with a 2.0 or 2.3 duratec. they are better platforms and you can actually get decent power from them.
always check the carfax. would have saved me from buying the svt in my driveway that was previously totalled.
