2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)

Review

I've owned this car for 5 months. From the first week it has been in the shop SIX yes 6 times for the same problem. The "check Engine" light keeps coming on then goes off then comes back on!!!!! The battery light goes on and off. The traction assist light goes on/off, on/off. Hey, Ford techs do you ever check the wiring harnesses before putting them into the cars???????? Even the horns worked when "THEY" wanted to.......

Best Features

I had a 2002 Blue Ford Lightning before this car--no problems. This thing is more fun and gets 25+mpg where the lightning never gave more than 12 with the same driving habits. Pedal to the metal.......gone!!!! Great performance and handling!!!!

Worst Features

Ford guys check the wiring in these things before sending them out of the plant. PLEASE!!!!!!! I'm a Ford guy but was so dissapointed...I would have traded for a Chevy!
