New SVT owner here! I purchased the car with 120k on it which means I will be dumping money into it soon. Hopefully I can reach 200K or get close it it.

The seats are great compared to the Escort I was driving before. The car is relativity slow but it brakes and handles well.

I would never pay more than 5 thousand for one unless it's been really taken care of and you don't need to do anything.

Timing belt and the clutch are the big PITA repair items on these cars. Try revving it up and dropping the clutch before you buy it. If does not lock the wheels up then they better take $700 off the sales price.

Good luck.
