Should I buy?

Hi,

I just found a 2003 Black SVT with 18600 miles (a military guy owned it and kept it garaged while overseas). One owner. Clean. 2 visable scratchs.

Except:

Looks like the previous owner put a bunch of neon lights underneath that aren't contected and from the half bald front tires he drove it hard. I plan on getting an extended warranty (any issues wuth getting these for SVTs).

I am at $12500 with the dealer. Good price for the car?

THanks

I don't know if i'd pay that much. I bought my car new in 2003 (2003 ZX3, not svt) for 12,900. They were 17,000 4 years ago. I find it hard to believe a focus could retain that much of it's value. Just my 2 cents.

It sounds like an good price to me. 12,5 is cheap for a car with that many miles now-a-days

The car eats tires. Because they are bald, I wouldn't be convinced it was driven hard.

Thanks

Thanks to all who responded--I bought it. It's great. I took it to a Ford Dealership before I bought, they we able to show me the history and I also got the good news that it still has two years of powertrain warranty remmaing. Also I talked them down another $500.
