So does an SVT Focus Dealer have SVT technicians? [/B][/QUOTE]
From what I understand the answer is NO. Any dealership was allowed to sell the SVTF beginning in either 03 or 04. This was to expand the sales numbers of the car which were not what Ford was seeing in the first part of production.
This could also be why so many SVTF owners are dis-pleased with the service received at various dealerships. The mechanic who works on your SVT may not know the differences between a Focus and a SVTF. Again, this is also why some dealerships look at you kind of nuts when you ask for your free loan car and a free wash job.
But all is not lost. With the help of forums like this and a few others where we can obtain the needed information, and educate the Dealerships, we can build a strong dealer network for Ford.
