My experience with my SVT
By Kelly Majors on


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


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.

Best Features

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 handles great.
