2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
This car is a great fit for me. I am 6'2" and yet have sufficient head and leg room. I have two children, and we all can fit. It is economical to operate, but still has a great 'Fun Factor'. It is stylish, but also practical. There are cars with more economy, but that are no fun to drive. There are cars with more horsepower, but are significantly more expensive (and how much power can you realistically use before you get in too much trouble). This car, for me at lease, provides the best of both worlds, and it is disappointing that Ford discontinued this type of production.
Favorite Features
Six speed transmission, four wheel disc brakes, peppy engine
Suggested Improvements
Change to gear ratio to facilitate better highway mileage. At 70 mph, the engine is slightly over 3000 rpm in 6th gear. If you need acceleration, use 1st through 4th, which can take you significantly beyond any legal speed limit. 5th and 6th gears should have been left for economy.
