Great car - expect some quirks

Vehicle2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesClean look, modern styling, SVT pedigree, 17" wheels, performance car attitude
Worst Featuresre-engineer intake manifold and exhause setup. Show off that gorgeous header!
