Clutch, rust, especially the rockers, front bearings, cylinder head temperature sensor, power steering line, ball joints and tie rods, cruise control. Not too bad for over 200k miles.

Yeah I did drive all over middle earth but that was in my custom rally wagon focus with the adjustable suspension from an allroad and the 5.0 v8 from a mustang gt. You need at least 8 cylinders to get away from the nine. jk :P

In all seriousness I haven't actually driven that much I just got the car with high miles on it. The original owner lived in rural Michigan, which explains the high miles and the rust, as well as the triple digit purchase price :)

Replaced
  • Tires
  • Shocks
  • Struts
  • PCV Hose
  • CD Changer was bad
  • Wheel Bearing
  • Front Brakes

But considering the car is 10 years old and has 145,000 I don't consider that to be too bad.

I love my 2002 SVTF but I've had to change my alternator 4 times since owning it.. they are a peace of dookie.. I wish they would of done better engineering on that.. other than that I really love my car and the progression of performance mods I've done to it.

Bought the car with a malfunctioning fuel pump. My father and I spent 3 days working on the issue, which, by the end of it, had my shop suit drenched in gasoline. Needless to say, there was a new fuel pump purchased, and the gas tank was dropped so many times i lost count. But point of the story is, the car runs so beautiful that it was worth it in the end.
