SVT is an awesome car, and very fun to drive, and I stand by it even tho every day I drive trucks which of course have much more powerful engines.

Maintenance on SVT as you already know, is a headache mostly to the cause of previous owner who trashed the car or didn't maintain it. But when you buy one, just take care of replacing suspension, brakes, it shoudl be less than $1,000 and also timing belt job which is about $200 and you should have a good reliable car.

Just keep always in your garage, or even trunk:

Accessory Belt,
Thermostat Housing,
a bottle of Coolant,
2 hoses and some clamps,
metric toolset,



and you're good :D
