Vehicle2004 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewI've had the SVT about a month, and it
has met my high expectations. For the
money, nothing can touch it. Drove it
1800 miles up and down the Oregon coast,
and had too much fun... the only car
that could stay with it was a 740i that
took me on an uphill passing lane... The
car is docile around town, but when it
comes on the cam, it's like Jekyll and
Hyde. My brother has a Cooper S, and
the SVT has equivalent performance, a
better ride, a usable back seat and
costs $6K less... the Cooper is cuter,
though. Only problem has been that
throwout bearing noise, which seems to
be chronic with these cars
Best FeaturesThis car is balanced... everything works together... driving at 8/10 is effortless, and downshifting from 6 to 5 to 4 at 95 on an Oregon backroad sweeper just feels really good...
Worst Featuresget that throwout bearing fix out to us owners... revisit decision to stop production; these cars are too good to go away.
