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


Review

Wow, my supercharged zx3 barely nosed
out the stock svt. Thats when i knew i
had to have one. This car handles as if
you are on a rail, not only that it
will pull you away from the curb a lot
faster then those eastearn pocket
rockets.


Best Features

The handles are supurb. The sound of the engine with an aftermarket intake is a like a formula car.


Worst Features

PUT AN INTAKE ON. Take care of this beauty and it will take car of you!

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


Review

This car is the best handling I've ever
had and the acceleration has long legs.
The idle has a problem which the dealer
can't repeat. Apart from the horn
failing and the cruise control quitting,
(loose wire) The dealer has been superb.
This car offers a rental car if it needs
to be in the shop.


Best Features

Handling, radio,6 speed the hatch is handy have squeezed an armchair in there.


Worst Features

Not much. It does everything I ask of it, lacks nothing. It's pretty loaded for a small car.

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


Review

There are multiple postive remarks I
have for the SVT focus, the car gets up
and hauls butt! Fun to drive, awesome
features for the $20,000 price tag!
170hp plus 6 gears to play with!

Downsides, has been a trouble some car!
From valve cover leaking oil, to t-stat
housing leaking coolant 2 times. Car
has stalled several times for no reason
and dealer is unable to diagnos the
issue! However Ford continues to
service this vehicle as if they were
trying to sell me another car (another
words works hard to keep it perfect!)

Overall this car is amaizing! SVT did a
great job designing this sports
compact, sorry to see it goign away in
04 though!


Best Features

peppy, handling is "on rails" steering wheels stereo contols, 6 gears, heated seats.


Worst Features

Ford SVT put great effort in making this car the best possible! There is nothin really needed to make this car better... However a supercharger would have been nice, but sure would raise the price! hope to aftermarket this issue soon!
