2003 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

When I bought this car I knew it would be fun, but I didn't realize what a great package Ford put together. It's practical, feature laden, sporty, fun, roomy, cheap all things that usually not found in a single car. It could use more power, but that's always true. The creature comforts are first rate - HID lights on a sub 20K car - wow. It handles like it's on rails, once moving is relatively fast.


Best Features

Handling, Practicality, good zip for a 4 cylinder NA motor, cheap to insure, fun to take to events (thank you SVTOA).


Worst Features

More power, duh.

2003 Ford Focus ZX5 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my ZX5! However, I'm not getting the mileage I thought I would be getting. I also have a problem with the windshield wiper design. There always seems to be a stream of wated running down the windshield to the right of my line of vision. It gets annoying.


Best Features

It's fun to drive and very easy to handle-especially on wet or snowy pavememnt.


Worst Features

The windshield wipers needs to be reworked.

2003 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

What can I say, fast, fun to drive and good looking small car. This is the the only small car I would drive.


Best Features

Looks fast without being gaudy.


Worst Features

The radio antenna is too long and is the only thing that I intend to change.

2003 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

A great little car with a lot of pep. I owen a 2004 Mustang and I enjoy driving the focus just as much. Great stereo system. The focus has a smooth ride. With few exterior upgrades like I have done it really an eye-catching vehicle.


Best Features

The stereo... Also great on gas.


Worst Features

A quiter cabin from outside air when you're driving highway speeds.
