2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


This car is worth every penny,
especially with the generous rebates.
All the magazine reviews are correct.
The car handles and brakes like a race
car. Although the SVT Focus is
sluggish at low rpms, it comes on
forcefully (like a turbo) at mid to
high rpms. It has a nice exhaust note
that's not offensive like aftermarket
ones, and the telescoping and tilting
steering wheel allows for the perfect
driving position. The performance,
practicality, utility, and fun to
drive aspects of this car are
unmatched. If you can find one
without the unnecessary options, buy
it. I got mine (no options) for only
$16,700 out the door! Definitely a no-

Best Features

6-speed tranny, telescoping steering wheel, cockpit/interior

Worst Features

more low end torque, not having to buy premium fuel
