2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


are met by this little SVT Focus. I haven't had it long, but can't resist reviewing it with a rave. I have been looking at it and others for months. I was going to wait for the new mustang, but just had to have this little silver 3-door svt. The last one in my area and a good deal did the trick. The SVT embodies just the type car I have always loved: small, high revving, great handling little rockets [vw scirocco, fiat 124 spyder, 131 brava, 128 4 dr., new beetle - well the last 2 weren't rockets]. It has not disappointed. It's fun to drive. The styling is just fine. Car and Driver magazine is right about the 10 best; this one sure belongs.

Best Features

The 6-speed transmission and positive clutch feel; leather wrapped steering wheel; good visibility; great handling; and finally, the styled wheels - coolest wheels I've ever seen.

Worst Features

A little more low end torque, but I'm not complaining.
