Of course its an SVT
By Andrew De Lisle on
2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Having owned Ford for years I had no
doubt it was going to be good. KNowing
SVT and what they could produce I was a
bit shy about a front wheel drive
sports car. Over all it is a blast, the
handeling is not as good as my SCCA
Mustang but awsome for the road. The
only down fall is the clutch. It is a
performance clutch so like to be in or
out and does not like stop and go
traffic. The ride is not as stiff as
you would expect it. Expect understear
when cornering hard. When all is said
and done I was impressed with what SVT
has done with this little car and bould
buy another one.
Six speed trany. It helps manage the
power better and keep it power band
almost all of the time.
SVT really needs a small V6 in this for
more low end torque.
