I am 39 and LOVE my SVTF!!! As stated above, if it is titled as "rebuilt" or "Salvaged", I would stear clear of it! It will more likely than not be a troublesome vehicle IMO. For example a friend of mine had a 1987 Buick Grand National and he got T-Boned by someone that ran a red light, It was fixed but the car was never the same again. It had electrical problems and the alignment was never right after the accident and he had a hard time selling it even though it was a Grand National. Buyer Beware!

On another note, you could take it to a shop that inspects and appraises vehicles and have them go over it with a fine tooth comb and get their opinion on the vehicle if you are that interested in it.

Understeer scares the driver, oversteer scares the passenger.
