Looking to get out of My SVTF, Help.
 
I have a 2003 comp orange SVT focus. 143000 miles and I think I am ready to say goodbye but I love this car. I don't really want a new 2012 focus. Is the mileage an issue? It runs good the clutch went in last oct. 2011 and Besides wheel bearings its been great. should I keep it? What should I look for if I was to replace it? been driving a zx3 of some kind for the last 6 years.

Grow a pair and make desicions for yourself?

Internet,
Those who say you should sell the car will also be those interested in buying it.
Those who say keep it will be Focus die-hards that just don't know what else is out there.


I'm indifferent and don't really care what you do. I only look at financial gains and losses.
This car presumibly is paid for. Whereas a new car you'd be in debt.
I'll take the no debt option, or lesser debt, option most all times.

Yeah your right on all fronts.
I will probably beat this car into the ground or wrap it around a tree...
Really would like a five door svt.

If you want a zx5 svt, then get one. Just to add you can do so many mods & still be way ahead then a new car. Seems like your bored, you need to do some mods. [woot]

If you really want a 5 door SVT, what's holding you back? Keep on the lookout for one, when a good one comes up, buy it and sell your 3.

Don't get caught up in the fascination with new cars. A 2003 car is not that old.

I have a 5-door SVT and like you, I'm tempted only by the new ST.

But then I think:
-The SVT is paid for... and all the little mods are done (just need to install them)
-The new ST would set me back about 500-600 a month for x-number of years
-The SVT is paid for
-The SVT is paid for
