Vehicle2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewHandling is nearly unbelievable. Braking performance is awesome as well. Low-end torque is missing so it's a little slow of the line but once it gains enough RPM's to hit the power band it really takes off. The interior design is really nice. Stereo system is awesome. Seats are comfortable and the back seats are surprisingly roomy. There is a slightly noticable problem with rough idle that appears from time to time. This is a known problem by Ford and can be made better (but not fixed completely) by having the computer reprogrammed by an authorized SVT service center - this issue was fixed in the 2004 model. I'm very happy with my purchase overall and would certainly recommend this car.
Best FeaturesTraction control, 6-disk CD changer, moonroof, handling(!!!!), good looks, comfort of the front seats
Worst FeaturesSomething to improve low-end torque, higher HP (turbo or a supercharger perhaps?), HID headlights standard instead of optional
