Should I buy 03 SVT w/18K miles for $12500?

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

Does it have EAP? If so, it is definately a good deal with those miles.

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 remaing. Also I talked them down another $500. BTW what is EAP?

European Appearance Package. Is your interior all black or does it have colored inserts?

Nice buy. EAP stands for European Appearance Package. Basically means the car comes with HID's, Recaro black leather seats, and 15 spoke wheels. EAP pretty much means that it comes with all the options.

I bought mine with 22k on it for $13,900. So since it has less miles and a lower price, I say go for it. Provided it's in good condition. And if it's at a dealer, make sure they look at some of the usual SVT problems...like the catalytic converter heat shield.
