2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Review
The 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 one. 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 octane fuel. My SVT five-door is my daily driver, and I'm very happy with the purchase.
Favorite Features
European 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).
Suggested Improvements
Should 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.
