The SVT Focus was only made from 2002 thru 2004. The reliability did not change throughout the years it was made. The only recall was due to the cruise control, and the motor is the same with zero differences. The only changes that were made over the 3 years was traction control, a 5 door model and the addition of the Euro package. I love mine, and I hope if you do pick it up, you love it.
