2002 Ford Focus SVT 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

2002 Ford Focus SVT 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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

2002 Ford Focus SVT 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!


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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!
