A true sports car

Vehicle
2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
Brisk acceleration, razor sharp handling, and crisp brakes that will haul you down like an F-18 landing on a carrier. All these traits embody a true sports car ethos. This car is an absolute BLAST to drive, and BEGS to be driven - even getting groceries is fun. Value is definitely at the top of the list. HID headlights, Traction Control, power moon roof, 6 speed silky-smooth transmission, heated Recaro leather seats... the list goes on and on. You will not find another car on the market with these options for the 15k I stole mine at. If you find one, snatch it up!
Favorite Features
Overall fun factor of the car is a 10+. Fully optioned and loaded car can be had for an awesome price. Head turning looks and exotic car exhaust note. Did I mention this car is fun to drive?
Suggested Improvements
A tad more torque would be nice, somewhere between idle and 2000 RPM range. Driving with the A/C on induces a less than pleasant bogging effect. A shorter final drive ratio; this car has some seriously 'long legs' Spirited driving can net MPGs in the teens. (*cough* resale value * cough*)
