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


Was going down the Honda Accord path but wanted to be different, save $$$ and answer the need for 'More Power Captain'. Family and friends that have high mileage cars have had better luck with Fords vs. GM cars for Major Buck type repairs (IE A/C, transmission, engine mgmt), so I bought the Ford. Great car with more room than expected. If you appreciate Upgraded Engineering on everything that matters in a car built for performance, buy an SVT, otherwise by a car with a turbo and a spoiler bolted on. Rock On Ford!!!

Best Features

Overall true Engineering Upgraded Value for the dollar beats all others by a mile including Honda. If ultimate speed is your goal, this car is stronger than any other in the class to be able to handle an add on turbo/blower without breaking driveline components.

Worst Features

Taller 6th gear, leave the other 5 alone. Why don't Americans get the fact that GM advertises 4 times more to get similar sales levels????? If you like Gimicks and Fads, buy a GM or Dodge. If you appreciate Engineering but don't have the $$$ for a Vette, buy a Ford Product!!!
