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


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.

Best Features

Integration of everything! Balance, rev- happy powerplant, 6 speed, stereo, great ABS brakes, one touch moonroof, lumbar supports on both front seats, interior room, steering wheel controls, true variable rate wipers, looks, exclusivity, ride and handling.

Worst Features

Armrest on center console! You can eat up highway miles with this car and a center armrest would be great. Sturdier rims for the real world. Factory mud flaps to prevent road rash on rocker panels.
