Why is my 2002 SVT tanking in value?

I am pushing close to 84,000 miles. If I keep up with the preventative maintenance, how long can I expect this thing to last? I want to keep it because it is definitely an indicator of the mindset that Ford once had. When are we going to get the SVT Fusion?

the reason is because the entire car market is in the shitter right now and nobody is buying cars period. if the demand isnt there than the supply will tank. my 03 has 102,000 miles on it and the only wrench i ever put on it was changing the clutch. im fixing to change the timing belt set and get new brakes and a tune up and get ready for another 100,000 miles. keep her.

keep it, dont hold your breath on the svt fusion, ford will most likely scrap the svt line for a while to save money

Are you talking the GT500?

I'm half tempted to buy the Fusion Sport AWD, depending on how it tests, performance wise. That 3.5L is easily modded to 300hp. And Steeda is going to make the full batch of handling products and go fast bits for it.
