2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
This was my first car at 16 and I still own it today. As you can imagine a 16 year old with a modified SVT focus tends to think he is Ken Block... So my focus has had alot of abuse and I feel my review has some merit for a daily driven and hooned focus The car has never left me stranded but requires some timely maintenance. Common repairs for this car other then wear and tear. Thermostat housing, The car would IDLE at 2k when first started. Had ford re flash the ECU with a updated control map and fixed the problem (common and known problem) My odd issues. Ignition Coil would cut off #4 cylinder. Thus replaced with aftermarket MSD. Wheel Bearing, cracked control arm. Engine mounts wear
Favorite Features
Really fun to drive. Lots of feel though steering wheel. Can be used as a autocross car and a daily driver. head turner
Suggested Improvements
IF you have a SVTF I would recommend a few preventative maintenance tweaks that will save you some money. Lamin-x fog light covers upgraded tires if you are going to drive the car hard ECU RE FLASH! This is a must if the previous owner modified the car The only thing I wish I would change about my focus is that It had more comfortable seats. The non Recaro SVTF seats are very unforgivable for long distance As long as you change the oil, put 91 octane in it, keep a eye on the transmission fluid, and make sure the engine mounts are steady the car will run forever and does not need much improvements.
