I sold my '00 Mustang GT and bought a
new Silver SVT Focus with the red
interior, audiophile sound system, and
sunroof. At the time, there were no
rebates available, and the car was
about $18,000. I have about 8,500
miles on the car, and it has been very
reliable and fun to drive. I haven't
missed the Mustang at all. It rides
and handles extremely well, the stereo
is impressive, the overall ergonomics
are top notch. It has pretty tall
gearing, but the 6-speed has great
feel. It does have some performance
car quirks - the cold idle is rough,
and it needs RPMs to launch well.
Clean look, modern styling, SVT
pedigree, 17" wheels, performance car
re-engineer intake manifold and exhause
setup. Show off that gorgeous header!
