good bye old pard


2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


I bought this car on impulse. Basically it had a practical style because of the functional hatchback design covering a tiger. I love to drive this car. It handles better than anything I've owned or driven in the past although a turbocharger would have been better. The creature comforts are just right for this type of car. It's not a plush ride nor should it be. Too bad Ford hasn't figured out how to make a car reliable. I've had all sorts of problems from bent axles to a failed oil pump causing me to replace the engine. Just replaced the dual mass clutch that literally exploded and not under stress. I don't enjoy waiting for tow trucks so it's going to a new owner who will love the handling.

Best Features

Handling is superb. Functional body style. I mean you can get a lot of stuff in this hatchback! Performance is good and would be great with a turbo.

Worst Features

Reliability. Learn from the Japanese.
