New to Ford and the forum!

Hello, I'm Brent, just got my '03 SVT last Monday and so far im loving it. I have the winter package as I live in MN and it's definitely a big change from my last car. I'm very interested to take a look at some of your guys' cars and kinda compare, as I have never been a big follower of Ford. See y'all around!

Despite selling plenty of small cars, few had much of an enthusiast following until the Focus came out, and your SVT is a Factory Hot Rod version of that!

Quick with nice handling, many of us have upgraded ours with parts stock to yours.

One warning for new SVT owners is to know when the Timing belt was replaced. Needs to be done around 100,000 mi., breakage results in major damage as the pistons hit the valves (only downside to the SVT's high performance modified engine).

Decent examples of the SVT are becoming harder to find, so they're holding their value & are well worth taking care of.

Enjoy hangin' out here as you learn about your new ride!
