Focusing on Quality-Where is it?
By Mark Roman on


2003 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


At crusing speeds, there is an
electrical problem which causes the
vehicle to stall whenever I turn on the
lights or flick the high beams back and
forth. It's been the shop twice to
trace the problem to no avail. While I
had the vehicle in the shop for
the first service, some grease monkey
backed into it damaging the rear
bumper. They had the vehicle in the
shop for 19 days in January. Whenever
I flick the windshield washers, I get a
strong smell inside the cabin of
antifreeze. They've replaced one piece
and it still occurs. The drivers seat
has a loose piece. They've also
replaced the outside rubber on the
driver's side door and the car alarm.

Best Features

The performance astounds me.

Worst Features

The leather seats do not feel of the greatest quality. I'd gladly trade them for a set of Recaros.
