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


Ford had managed to take an absolutely proper car and ruin it with their typical 'gotta-save-money-ta-build-em- trucks' economics. Mine being plagued with the usual problems such as constant leaking coolant out of the thermostat, plastic clutch master cylinder that ruined the interior 3 times over, sticky butterfly valves on their 'revolutionary' dual cam design, right...and on it goes.

Best Features

The equivalent ST170 focus sold in Europe is superb. An excellent execution of quality and presicion, the only thing it was allowed to give our SVT-counterpart was it's sophisticated suspension and braking components.
