I am 26. I love the SVT, but I think fuel is going to get you. It takes 91+ octane, and I really don't get that great of mileage. The best I ever see is 25, with a tune (I haven't tried the highway tune yet).

The car is a lot of fun though.

Don't buy a Jap car though. There are plenty of other good options. What about a SKoda?
