9 Out Of 10, I Love Mine. — For a basic compact car, the SVT Focus is definitly a great competitor. The performance is great on top end, highway monster. The appearance is one off and trendy. The car is amazing to drive. The build quality is good, but could be better, 8/10. The over all cost is good. Requires 91+ octaine but it gets great mileage for being a car that makes you feel like half throttle is just not enough.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun, sporty, and fast.

Cons: Built in Mexico

Svt Focus — A blast to drive. The Getrag 6-speed is probably one of the best transmissions I've every experienced. The car accelerates quickly well past 100 mph with ease. It also has one of the best sounding exhaust notes I've ever heard.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 6-Speed Manual, exhuast note

Cons: could be faster, maybe turbo or supercharged.

Car And Driver, Autoweek, And Others Still Talk About This Car And It's Potential. — This car out of the box was perfect. The best brakes of any car I have driven, and handles any corner you throw it into. SVT did a great job on this car, making it distinctly an SVT. Exterior and interior are a huge ste up for the standard focus. Now, the car has aobut 265 hp and is a completely different beast. The best sleeper for the buck.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fast as any car into a turn, and faster out.

Cons: If you don't like a quality vehicle, don't buy one.

It Was A Great High School Car — Its got great handling, probably its best trait. It makes nice power for a NA 4 cyl but its still no Euro RS Focus. Its good enough to take on jap crap and V6 Mustangs and Camaros but even that doesnt say much. On the track Ive seen them keep up with WRXs... around corners at least.

Pros: Great handling

Cons: FWD 4 cyl

A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing — A lucky find at my work, this SVT was previously modified for scca racing, on one of my first drives it humilated a 350z !!! And it drives like its on rails, if not for the exhaust note the disguise would be perfect, but its only fair to warn your prey !!!

Pros: A car this fast and fun shouldnt get 25mpg !!!

Cons: The wife hates the exhaust tone .............LOL

Fun To Drive — This car is an eye opener. It will keep u in the back of your seat and keep u there. If u want some thing to keep up with an evo type, throw in a turbo (and a little bit). The 6 speed Trans allows for plenty of improvement. And for the suspension it’s almost as good as it gets with a lowering kit maybe 1/2 an inch. Just keep it maintained or u will regret it. If you’re going to the dealer (recommend) the bill will look like a BMW bill.

Pros: Interior

Cons: dealer parts

My Little Svt — I loved it cuz it was a 150mph 4 cylinder haha not much else. It wasn't really a good cruiser though and i kind of need a cruiser hence why i bought my new mustang.

Pros: Lots of power, handled great

Cons: repair parts cost to much
