This car lives up to all the positive
reviews it's earned from all major
publications. It's a total hoot to
drive - and you get a $2500 rebate to
boot! This car flies, handles like a
dream and is functional too -
guaranteed to put a grin on your face.
The only bad news - you may not be able
to find any 2004s left - maybe a 2 door
here or there.... and Ford isn't making
a 2005 SVT Focus (go figure). If you
can find one, don't hesitate - buy it.
My car has the audiophile system and
sunroof, all for under $18K after the
rebate. And you get to blow the doors
off almost all the Civic, Eclipse,
Impreza and Jetta drivers out there.
6 speed trans is just right, engine
wails, audiophile sound system is top
shelf, but best of all is the cockpit -
seats, steering wheel and gauges are
One complaint - it kills me to buy
premium gas. Ford should have found a
way to use Regular - even the 300 HP
Cadillac Northstar uses regular fuel!
