Hmm sounds like someone is unhappy with their SVT. I have few things go wrong with my car that needed to be fixed like the DSI breaking on it and the heat sheilds coming off the Cat. I didnt mind it much since when you get an SVT product you get a loaner car...thus I'm not stuck waiting for the car to get fixed. I happy with the car right now and i have nearly 34K on it already and its just over a year and a half old. Once the Warrenty runs out and if I have more problems my tune might change, but otherwise its a good car. I came from a 98 Mustang GT and just the Interior is worlds better then the Mustang was...and thats important on long drives...I felt that the Mustang was a very tiring car to drive compaired to the Focus, even on my commute to work that was 45 minutes to a an hour long before I moved.Do not. Do not. Do not get an SVT Focus. Check around. When Ford wakes up and decides to offer better quality, then buy one. 2005 would be the year to buy, more than likely.
