03 svt just hit 199,000 and still running like a champ! I bought it pretty high, just replaced the tbelt, running with royal purple. No major problems to report

-Also wanted to add, I had some minor mechanical experience before this car, but I've definitely been hitting the books hard when I bought this. After hearing dealership horror stories, I definitely wanted to learn this car and do all the work on it myself.

Timing belt wasn't too bad, just make sure you've got the cam shaft clamped down pretty good. Don't use the timing bar to hold the shaft when loosening the cams!

02 SVT here with 123k only thing wrong right now is a broken front wheel bearing and an 02 sensor still performs incredibly.

Just about to roll over 100k. Small lot dealer I bought it from got it in a trade with a bad clutch among other things. They replaced the clutch. Bought it knowing it had no stereo on the right channel, pulsing brakes, lame exhaust and a few other small things. Almost the day of purchase the driver front wheel bearing started growling. Brakes done, wheel bearing done, new touch screen stereo installed that fixed the dead speakers, will need to replace one stock wheel that has a chunk of lip removed from a bad curb, and it'll be a good daily. Pleasantly surprised that it consumes absolutely no oil and the oil after 2k of pretty hard driving still looks brand new. Indicates no sludge build up, which likely means it's been running synthetic for a very long time or has had the oil changed very very often, or both.

153,750 and climbing although engine rebuild at 130,000 due to failed fuel pump at "excessive" speed. Before the pump failed, it ran great. Probably would not needed rebuild on original engine had I not had an overly long stretch of road in front of me!
Original trans has no issues whatsoever.

My new to me 2002 SVTF has 181,500 on it. Just got a new timing belt, water pump, rear main seal, valve cover and several other goodies. Runs like a champ!

Well guys, I found out this past weekend, that SVTF's don't make for a good off road vehicle. I'll blame this one on my navigator for not mentioning the fast approaching hairpin lol. Few minor scratches, front bumper needs some repair, and a dented radiator.


I was very lucky not to have anything major break down, she's still running like nothing happened!
