Comp Orange SVT
By JLiegl on
Vehicle
2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
I shopped around for a small commuter that was fun to drive. It came down to the Mini, SVT focus and a Miata. All three were fun to drive but bang for the buck the SVT topped them both. I bought it at 40k on the clock and have taken two long trips and daily to and from work. There have been no issues aside from some worn bushing on the front torsion bar that made a bit of a thump coming back into the driveway. The dealership took care of it right away with apologies that it wasn't fixed before the car left the lot. It's been a good car so far and the dealership as usual is above and beyond. Chevy built a good vehicle but their dealerships drove me away, and I am not looking back.
Favorite Features
Competition orange exterior, Recaro seats, and the way it corners. The clean blueish headlights and dash are great for traveling at night. The car really settles in on the highway and is a breeze to drive for hours at a time.
Suggested Improvements
A little more low end torque would be nice. The AC is enough to make starting from a light on a hot day something to think about instead of the systematic start.
