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

Review

The SVT Focus is hands down the most fun I have ever had behind the wheel of a street car. I've been the owner of a 300ZX TT and a Supra TT and for a time I drove a Renault Clio V6 Sport on a daily basis. While all of them are faster, none of them have been more fun. While the car does has some weak areas, it certainly makes up for them with its suspension, gearing, and overall connection with the road.

Best Features

Handling. By far the most fun on four wheels for under 20K. A fully optioned 4 door with end of model year rebates and incentives makes for a very good buy. More than capable of mundane city driving and people hauling.

Worst Features

Injector tick is very loud once the engine is fully warmed up. Sounds like a diesel from inside the cabin. Traction control is a little too enthusiastic. The sunroof has a very low frequency buffet at speeds above 40MPH. Cruise control and door lock buttons not backlit.
