Call me a troll now i guess

Well, i literally cried today when I signed over the title for my 2002 svt focus. I traded it in for a 2005 ranger. I personally consider it a downgrade, but for where im at in life I think it was a smart move. I couldn't handle paying for new tires and rims al l the time and I just took it in for another problem where i had to replace the coil pack and plug wires (oem i didn't upgrade) and I knew the car would just do something to me again next week. The svt focus is such a great car, I love that thing to death. If I had more income (im a college student) and could afford to keep up the maintenence and not have it be a daily driver (even though its a good one) I'd keep it because it is one of the most fun cars to drive and I have driven alot of nice cars. I'll probably still be on these forums just for the hell of it. The dealer didn't get the rear headrests (lolol) and I have a bent svt rim and tire in the basement and I have my svt certificate so I can make my little shrine! Good luck to everyone with their svt's, if you ever have to part with it, unless your upgrading to a cobra or a Ford GT its gonna be one of the hardest things you'll ever do.

Hey man the ranger isnt a bad truck I'm sure you'll be happy with it. Driving an SVT is fairly pricey between the insurance and the tickets (heheh). Good luck with it man you'll be pretty happy but I'm sure you'll miss the autocross.

I'm not against your decision, but why the ranger? A buddy of mine has a 2002 and it's horrible especially in the winter (and that's what he bought it for ), have they improved since then?

SO, cruz isn't part of the SVT fam nomore

Yes, why Ranger? You could have bought a used Ranger and saved a ton, and still had almost exactly the same truck. The Ranger has not had any major improvements or changes in years. But, whatever...

Troll. (only 'cuz you said to...)

I know the feeling of parting with a great car for... sensible reasons.

It hurts, but you'll always have the memories. And when you finish college and get a job and stay away from drugs and find a good woman with her own damn job and do that for a decade... you may be able to re-live those good times again. (Just don't have any kids!)

Here's what mommy should have told you to do when you downshift:
1. Step on the clutch
2. Simultaneously slide the shifter into a lower gear and give the throttle a quick, amazingly precise jab to rev the engine to exactly the rpm it needs to be at in the next gear
3. Quickly let out the clutch

Oh sure, It takes a few thousand tries before you get the timing and precision of your jab just right, but the reward is that you no longer suck.

Who let the Troll with the little truck in?

J/K man. Totally hang around the site. We all know it's about more than just cars and if you enjoyed it as an owner you should still enjoy it now. Nice pick on the truck btw.
