At first I really enjoyed the car. It
is great fun to drive. The 6 speed
provides good pull at every shift. I
have experienced some problems with the
car however. It has been back to the
dealership 4 times with clutch problems.
One of those times I had to be towed in.
Finally all the clutch assembly, slave
cylinder etc. had to be replaced.
Needless to say with less then 20,000
miles on it, I have lost some of my
confidence in the car. Gas mileage is
good but the car requires gasoline rated
over 91 (super premium). With prices
over $2.00, it can cost well over $20.00
to fill the tank. I will not buy another
Focus SVT again.
The car has a great stereo system. I
have the warming seats which feel great
in cold weather. The six speed manual
is fun to drive-very quick and the car
