What should I do?

I don't know if this should go here but here it goes. My 03 SVTF is a great car it's fun to drive and gets good mpg. Ever since I have had it a bunch of small stuff keeps messing up. It's only really had a few big issues happen. Hopefully it'll all be fixed before warrenty is up. Here's my choices, either keep the car and put a blower on it, or trade it in on either a mach1, cobra, or srt-4. Even maybe a good GT if I find one, not a new one but last years model. I don't know what I should do. I love my car but I have a bad feeling that these small probs. will continue to plague this car. I don't know how to do the poll thing or I would do that but what's ya'lls opinions. Thanks everyone!

If I had a choice, it'd be the Cobra (03 or 04 only) or the blower.

Cobra's also have some little stuff that goes wrong with them my suggestion would be a mach 1 or if u can find a nice gt. the gt is what im going to be looking at over the next summer. Im at the same point where you are. Ive upgraded most of the things that might break or have broken on the car but that still doesn't leave me very satisfied.

i would skip on the srt4, sure its a got a nice engine, but the the rest of the car (ride quality, handling, brakes, interior) are far less quality than what you have in the SVTF. Not a good trade off in my opinion.

The cobra is a fun car, but there again, I find it kinda uncomfortable to drive comparitively. It would be a great weekend car, but not a daily driver for me (80miles a day)

Havent had a chance to drive the Mach 1 for more than just around our shop yet, so I can't comment on that choice, although I do like the looks of the car. If it rides better than the Cobra (and I think it would), it would be my first choice of your three cars listed.

Personally, my next car will be either an STI, 350z, G35 or an RX8

I like Ford, but I've had 3 Fords in a row now, time to sample some other stuff again.
