Exclamation SVT About To Be Lemoned...

Yea most of you on here have already heard about my car, and its now in the process of a Lemon. What should i do? i can give them the car back and get money back (keeping in mind i still owe money on the car) and it would be paid off and i would have money to put down on a new car (not sure of how much yet), or they will give me a brand new SVTF, and resume my payments, or I can keep the car, and just have it paid off. What do yall think? if i was to sell it back, and get a different car, what should i get? i want something nice (which the SVT is) but maybe a little better (preferably turbo). im thinkin about an STI or EVO but not sure if im gonna have that much money. RX-8? used RX-7 turbo? WRX? What would everyone on here get? i need some opinions on what to do lol, new SVTF or new car altogether... Whatcha think? thanks for the replys to those of you who do.

OMG...if you have the money for a STI or EVO, or an RX-8 or WRX, I don't know why you would even really consider the SVTF. I mean, those other cars are in a different class altogether. You might want to sit down and take a look at your finances and be sure of what you can afford. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we are discussing a 5K-10K difference in price between an SVTF and the other vehicles you mentioned. If it were me, with my budget, I'd take the new SVTF.

yeah i would get another svtf simply because of the price from the svtf to a wrx, evo etc. If you have the money and can afford the payments and possible insurance increase...go for it.

Umm....The STI and the EVO are both 40k+ cars man. Probably alot more power than you can handle. I've ridden in one and its insane. There is no way to even compare an SVTF to those cars. They are almost double the price...

you can score an evo for about 35k, and a STi for about the same. not 40k felix. still, that's a huge jump in price. if i were you, go buy the sport compact car magazine about the ten best cars under 30k and figure out which one you like the most, if that's your answer. you'll be able to get a ballpark figure to determine how much the car costs, plus a semiprofessional review with tuning in mind. just my two cents

I am not sure but I believe if you lemon law your car they just buy it back and it is gone. As far as getting a new SVTF You will have to get a left over as there are no 05' models, good luck finding the color you want.

If you were to go after another car I think a used WRX would be pretty nice for around the same payment.
