2004 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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 ergonomic perfection.


Suggested Improvements

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!

2004 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Focus handles great! The size is just right. The drive is always smooth! In fact, the ride was so smooth I had to have my brother test drive it, because I was used to cars that you felt every bump. I have received many compliments from family and friends about how nice my Focus looks and rides!


Favorite Features

I love the size, shape, and driveability

Review

My 2003 Focus SE does incredibly well in the mountains, climbing long inclimes up to 80 mph. It does handles well in the city as well as on the interstate for long trips. One minor change: give it an adjustable steering column for ease of entry for us big guys.
