OH come ON! A SATURN? You might as well get a Volvo. Old ladies and schoolteachers drive Saturns. It's worse than the SRT - even though it has the performance it's still a NEON! Dorkmobile. Saturns are Yawnmobiles. Even with 200hp.

Saturn must make up in power for lack of looks, this seems to be the concept behind this new Ion.

Is this true for the Evo also? SVT? Spec V?

You, know what? I'll tell you what. alot of focus owners really don't get it. this car is not a u.s .market derivitive, you can't go around comparing it to pathetic Gm motors shity ass cars like the saturn. I can't believe anybody would mention it as an alernative or mention it period.

Ok were Americans, we drive oversized shity ass cars that handle like a shoping cart on a freshly waxed floor. Does anybody know about Ford Europe and what they are all about?
The focus was a last attempt to introduce a sporty Euro hatch to north america. This car is not a hot rod or a sportscar. It's a focus. it's not about Iowa or Texas or Utah, it's about an alternative to American cars. And we still don't get the good cars here in America, The Rs is no where near a comparison to the zx3, and so forth. There is Cosworth and there is SVT and ther is once again, no comparison. our focus is shit, most of em' are made in mexico.... And not to talk more shit, but standardized wages there are terrible and workmanship suffers as a result. So lets get real. Either put multiple thousands of dollars in upgrades into your car or just let it rest. Alot of people on this site would have been better off with a civic. At least you know it is easy to get upgrades for. lets face the truth, the focus is slow and barley competitive. The Svt needs alot of work to be competitve as well.

Ford has screwed the north American marker with cheap ass shit. and all you can do to get around it is to move to England. get it? I hope you do.... No offense to enthusiats but we are working with shit ass parts from a company who treats us like idots. Alot of people know what performance is worth, but is Ford listening to us about it? No way!

WE WANT THE RS COSWORTH FOCUS AND WE WANT IT NOW! EVERYBODY CONTACT YOUR LOCAL DEALERSHIP AND REQUEST THE RS. JUST LIKE ANY POLITICS, THEY WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO SELL US THAT CAR!!!! RISE UP AND DEMAND THE REAL SHIT!!!!!

sincerley,

pissed off north american duped Svt owner.
good luck

by the way you dope... there is nothing wrong with the quality of the mexican built focus the wages paid there are FAR higher than the surrounding area, and for that matter, that plant is closing and all focus's will be built at the wayne indiana plant shortly. Maybe you need to move to europe. Maybe then you will be happy. I want every one to be happy after all.

After reading this B.S about the focus is shit. Remember who started the automobile game. (FORD) #2 Who followed? everybody else..... The reason you don't see aftermarket things for a Focus here in aftermarket world is so that the manufacure won't lose money. And I feel your pain that's why I'm ordering things from Europe for performance. But you can do alot of things to your car and don't have to buy a turbo or supercharger. I seen a 93 escort with a DOHC with headers and with forged pistons smoke a 03 SI Civic and a Gti Golf..... and may I mention that they both are good drivers. May someone needs to understand that Focus RS uses 97 octane.(We don't sell that here) The SVT is compared to the ST-170 Focus in Europe and look alot similar. America always get the good cars last. I see the value of the focus goes down quickly but you have realize the people who make the decsions for those figure are people who probably drive European or japanese cars. So as for this SVT owener diving a Civic??? I don't think so................................................
