2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

my 2002 svt is faster than any honda i have raced so far but i have had my audiophile cd player replaced 3 times since i purchased the car. performance wise, the car has exceded my expectations but quality wise the car is falling apart. i am yet to lose a race but my car spends half its time at the dealership getting fixed.

Review

Honestly. I'm not an over excited, 20 something year old yelling, "look at the best thing I own". I'm older and still enjoy a great sports car. OK just to recieve some validation from you out there I'm 40+ and have been a car guy for a while. I've owned many sports, luxury sport and sporty cars and I must admit this is one of the finer handling sweetest engined vehicles I've owned.

A Blast

2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

This is a great performance slanted suburban vehicle. The engine /6 speed transmission combination is nearly ideal. The suspension and brakes are even better! You can drive it very fast into corners and off ramps. It is a great second car, but not practical enough for a single car family, with children. I purchased the optional 200 watt sound system, and would definetly recommend that-has a large woofer in the trunk, and 6 disc in dash CD player.

So Far, So Good !

Review

With all the troubles concerning Focus quality, I was a bit hesitant to purchase the SVT. After driving it, I loved it and bought it! Reasonably quick, smooth drivetrain, excellent handling, comfortable, decent mileage, great stereo, leather, moonroof, ABS and exclusivity too. Nothing else this much fun for $16K. Steering wheel audio controls are even included, helping keep my focus on what this car does best; drive! 10 months, 7900 miles and no issues. Minor tailgate creak I cured by adjusting the screw in rubber hatch stops. Owned a 99 Civic Si, but the SVT simply shines on long trips whereas the Honda would "buzz you to death" after 400 miles or so.

after a year of ownership...

2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

Very fun daily commuter. Attacks the twisties with willful abandon. For a naturally aspirated motor the power is adequate. Have had numerous issues with warrantee items...dual stage intake, exaust rattles, interior leak, mainly integrity issues, and lots of check engine lights. Meticulous owners may expect to visit dealers more often than they would like. Very aftermarket friendly for performance/apperance upgrades.

Lots of fun all year long!

Review

This car is really fun to drive all year long, except when it snows! (I definitely need to buy snow tires this winter) Seat heaters are nice even in the summer because they relieve the tensions of a daily commute. The car sounds awesome for just being a 4- banger.

Love It

2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

Excellent car. I owned a 2000 Focus Sedan and really liked it, but it lacked something. That something was 40 horses and a 6-speed. Excellent handling, solid power, and fantastic styling. Have had one problem that took a long time to get repaired due to backordered parts, but the SVT product comes with a free loaner so it was not a big problem. One word of caution, I have bent two of the wheels on some of the nasty potholes in Nashville, TN this year due to the horrible winter we had. The low-profile tires couple with the tight suspension can make for a bumpy ride when the pavement is broken up.

Crap quality, and crap reliability. I've been in the shop numerous times. Move on to a different car before you buy one of these lemons.

Review

Purchased #525 of 4788 2002 Focus. Currently have 29,000 miles on it. Have had one warranty cover repair for a intake manifold problem. Other than that had a great experiance..for the price I cannot imagine a better driving experiance...lots of room for the size of the vehicle, dynamics are good and the amature club level driving events are plentifull. Would purchase again.
