SVT's need a bit more attention than normal zetec's, though having both I like my SVT a bit more since it's just a nicer focus overall. The t-belt going on them is known that's why it's recommended to replace the at 60-80k mi, other than the normal zetec problems such as valve cover leaking over time, t-stat housing gasket leaking over time, and just a few other things that are common to all focus's it's not a bad car at all. Really though it's up to you, go check the SVT out for your self, you may just fall in love lol
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
