I own two different Foci - a ZTW (wagon) and the SVT. Both are 2003 models. I've owned the SVT for one year. Both cars are incredible - very reliable and very fun to drive. The SVT is quirky but I think that adds character. Mine is the Euro edition that, in addition to a host of features, comes standard w/ Recaro - heated leather seats, Xenon headlights; traction control and 17" wheels. In the SVT price range, there are no other makes that compete on performance and equipment. And the Focus is an American made product! I highly recommend this car.
All aspects of performance combined w/ excellent fuel economy. Interior comfort and styling. Not many on the road. The list goes on and on!
More low-end torque. Passenger-side door exterior lock. Some type of cover/scratch guard on the top of the rear bumper for loading and unloading misc. stuff. Standard (small) center console w/ storage.
