Great little car

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

Review

This car is the complete package. Sporty, well-appointed, practical, and comfortable. The engine has two personalities: docile and tame in normal driving, with excellent power when revving past 5500rpm. Great for the track, but it is a little hard to extract fun and performance on the street. Also surges when cruising. Aside from this, it's a great-looking little car with decent back seat room, and phenomenal cargo room for a compact. The handling is amazing considering its refined ride. Everything works, no rattles, and is thankfully very low-key as a performance vehicle. Mileage isn't impressive. List of features is excellent for a small car, and yetrelatively inexpensive. Highly recommended!

Favorite Features

Looks, exhaust note (stock), great balance of ride and handling, great non-HID headlights, fuel filler on passenger side.

Suggested Improvements

More torque, eliminate the cruising surge, V6 would make more sense than a 4-banger. Would love to see carburetors, but that'll never happen.
