Vehicle2004 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewThe SVT Focus is a blast to drive. It
does two things exceptionally well -
going fast and cornering. If that's
what you're looking for in a car, buy
This car will turn corners at speeds
you never though possible, and is very
stable at speeds that will get you
arrested rather than just a speeding
ticket (if caught).
For basic transportation, there are
better choices, though. The car is not
very roomy, the ride is a bit firm, the
engine is loud, and its a Ford.
Also, for its size, the gas mileage is
terrible, and it requires minimum 91
My SVT five-door is my daily driver,
and I'm very happy with the purchase.
Best FeaturesEuropean appearance package including Recaro heated leather front bucket seats, high speed capabilities, excellent brakes, decent stereo, relatively rare car (under 1100 2004 five-door SVT Focuses were built).
Worst FeaturesShould have been offered with optional all-season tires. Front strut tower brace would help minimize body roll. Option to completely switch off traction control would have been nice (there is a switch but it only partially defeats the control). The six-disc CD changer is K-mart qualiity.
