My 2002 SVT came with the passenger side engine suport broken when bought it about a year ago,I had it change and broke THREE more!! problem fixed when replaced it with a Steeda billet support.

also needed to change both oxigen sensors and thermostat and thermostat housing.

stereo was broken too but luckly I found an Audiophile 9006 in perfect shape last saturday and at an unveliebable price!

in my opinion not big deal with the problems, those are things you have to deal with when buying an used car.

other than the new tires I put on it are brushing up against the fenders, I am happy and proud of my beautiful SVT and now that I replaced the regular air filter by a K&N, it is more fun to drive.

Abosolutely nothing has gone bad in this car other than oil. my most costly things have been just recently..complete tune up, oil change, transmission flush/fill, coolant flush/fill, serpentine belt replaced of and I may need a motor mount in a few thousand miles, lol. I have an '03 wagon se w/86000 miles and running strong. I just started modding it now so we will see what happens. "if it dies, it dies"

Aside from the initial engine rebuild needed upon purchase, nothing to big or expensive has needed to be done. Battery, maf sensor, tires, and perhaps the most annoying was the cmc. It leaked brake/clutch fluid down the clutch pedal and all over the floor mat. Good thing the car had rubber aftermarket floor mats to catch all the oil .
