I think you have it backwards. Most of the problems have been with prior years not the 04s. So far I have 6000 hard miles on my car with only 2 problems. Seat squeak and the factory forgot to charge my AC. I dont think there is many if any real differences between the years. The introduction of the 5 door is really the only change that I can think of. Also, the Euro edition was only produced for 03 and 04 I think. I have the Euro and really love it. I dont think I would have bought my car if it wasent.

Here is a link to SVT site which tells the difference between the two. Download the brochure it has all the details.
BTW I have an o3 SVT Focus have over 21,000 kms on it and no major problems.

They are the best bet because they have almost all the bugs worked out of them. For instance they don't have the rev surging problem like many of the '02s have when you start up on a cold day. You should do a search on the problems that people have with the svt

^^ I beg to differ, my 04 has the surging problem! But other than that no big problems at all, I have just a little over 10,000 on my 04 and I love it.
