I have a 04 Red SVT Euro with 20k miles on it, what do u guys think its worth?
Is 23 MPG combined on 91 octane fuel efficient (for a 4-banger, none the less)? If so, I must be missing somethingJust note that KBB doesn't account for the limitedness of the Euro packages even though it lets you add the options. And its a great time to sell a fuel efficient car, everybody wants them. Not a good time to sell a truck though.
well regardless of the fun factor (please drive one before you say something like that..it handles as well as the SVT and is more balanced AND pulls more G's in on-ramps), I drove my SVT very easily and rarely put the throttle all the way down. I assume you fill up on 93 octane but we only have 91 out here in CA. Frankly because of all the emissions regulations in CA, even our best gas is crap compared to a lot of states. I don't think my car ran bad at all..I just never got great gas mileage out of her ESPECIALLY for being a 2.0 liter 4-cylindar car that uses premium fuel. There is a very differentiated trend on FF between SVT owners gas mileage. Some people claim no more than 22 combined, some people get 38MPG on the highway and never less than 30 in the city..yet nobody seems to have any idea how this could happen.If you get 23 MPG in a Focus SVT you're missing how to drive normally. I don't get any less then 26mpg combined, and that's with a heavy foot. EPA ratings are all bunk. 31mpg highway is just as good as your Accord, and an SVT is way more fun to drive.
