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


I'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 Features

This 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 Features

get that throwout bearing fix out to us owners... revisit decision to stop production; these cars are too good to go away.
