I bought the car three monthes ago and
I've been running with it ever since.
The car handles great, is comfortable
for long drives, and it is SO FUN TO
DRIVE. I would definitely recommend
this car for someone who loves the
sporty handling and performance and
wants a sensible car(tons of cargo
space and pretty good on gas mileage
for a performance car.) I LOVE MY SVT!!
Xenon headlights, 6-disc CD changer,
tons of interior room
More storage inside the cabin, a center
console and slightly larger glove
enjoy the ability to put transmission in
3rd gear and not need to worry about
shifting when getting on the freeway.
2.3l engine pulls great from 3000 to
over 6000 rpm. does reqire some finess
when using full throttle at low speeds
and turning more than a couple degrees.
seats a little too hard or stiff for my
taste when taking a several hour drive.
Lot's of bang for the buck. real
xenon lights, not those fake
aftermarket lights. Need to keep revs
up to enjoy engine. Unreal
handeling. kept up with bmw 330
series no problem. very stable at
high speeds (110 plus).
fast, great handeling, xenon lights,
heated seats, cool green gauges.
baby size gas tank. terrible crusing
range. if you wind out all the gears
you will average 17 miles a gallon and
less than 200 mile range. easy does
it and you can get 300.
premium fuel required.
I test drove this car on a whim, and
fell in love. It handles like a dream,
has great pick-up, and a nice quiet
ride. It has a great sound system, and
bunch of little, thoughtful features
(like a glow-in-the-dark trunk release
inside the trunk). Plus, it's really
I love the sound system and the tight
The trunk doesn't release all the way
and sometimes sticks. Weird. The
cupholders could be a little more
convenient (they don't hold tall
bottles of water). Minor stuff, overall.
I work in a body shop and there we had
an SVT Ford Focus ZX3 and it in the
shop for repairs. Looking at the car on
the lift, I was amazed at the
transformation of the suspension of the
vehicle MAN! I was impressed. To expand
my curiosity I opened the hood and as
soon as I saw the prim and propper set
up of the engine and the sound I said
im diffinitly going to buy this car and
Im about 5'6" and have short fingers
and this SVT Focus was at my finger
tips the Wipers, the Radio, the Cruise
Control and the awsomely reachable 6
speed BOY! this car was built for short
The very, very thing I ask of SVT is to
build a SVT Ford Focus R equipped with
a supercharger that would change the
way people look at another Focus
