I would keep what you got. If you are gonna trade up, wait to see what they come out with sport wise in the next year or two.

You are going to be taking a hit big time...if you are cutting it really close with the car payments. Just keep what you have right now...its better to have one car than no car.

Well, I would go to the dealer and take it for a test drive, see how it is (and if you like it), work on a payment. I don't know how much you paid for the Focus, but figure on losing money on the deal... I would think that if they want to sell the SVT they'd only take $500 on the old Focus.

If you can afford the payment, also figure that insurance would be more expensive (being newer and an SVT don't help), fines (more power = wanting to show off), gas money (93 octane and lower gas mileage), and a new set of tires (last I checked PA gets snow... SVT comes with summer tires). If you can afford the huge initial cost and then afford to make the $400 payment (just a guess), I'd recommend getting it!
