Are you the Original Owner?
 
I am curious to know..

How many members here have the pleasure of saying that they are the ONLY owners that their car has known? How do you drive your car, do you drive the piss out of it all the time, or do you baby it? How long do you plan on keeping your car? Lastly, does your car have a name?

I am proud that I am the original owner of my baby, she has given my nearly 10 years of reliable service. I used to drive the piss out of her, but numerous encounters with law enforcement and the cost of repairs have caused me to significantly tone down my driving. I almost baby her now, though I still push her from time to time. I plan on keeping my car for as long as possible, I will NEVER sell or trade this car in for anything, EVER!! My car is affectionately known as my baby, that is her name.

I can say I purchased my car in November of 2009 with 0.2 on her, and i plan on running it till there is nothing left.

Not of my former SVT, but I am the only owner of my current two vehicles. I'm really not a huge fan of used cars. LOL

My last car: Bought Contour SVT Dec 1998 drove it until August 2011.
Paid list when bought, sold to brother of apt building caretaker for $800. (which is all the dealers would offer for it)
So I still get to see it around now and then.
I loved that car. [pray]

I did not get mine brand new but it only had 8,000 miles on it in 2008. Its my pride and joy yes I drive it hard most of the time Germany would not be fun if I did'nt. Only problem I had is the passenger door handle is broken opens from inside not the outside. I have no plans of ever selling it.

Purchased mine in October of 02. Still love it but the new ST is very tempting.

Original owner. 180000 miles and I just parked it for the first time. It's been my daily driver since 2003.

I have owned my 2003 SVT Focus since November 2003. Had 3 miles on the ride when I took it away from the dealership.

And have revived the car 3 time since. Still enjoy driving the car. Even with buying second daily drivers through the years.
