research

hey guys and gals, i am looking into purchasing an SVT Focus to go along with my 1994 SVT Lightning . what i am looking for is any information i need to know about them, what i should look for, what year to stay away from, what kind of gas mileage to expect, and how bad of an urge i will get to start modding it like i did when i got my Lightning? i appreciate any input you all give me because i am not truly informed about the SVT Focus so i hope you all can give me some help!!!


definitely just saw the sticky about buyin a used focus...i feel stupid now.. but either way i would still like any input from you guys on the car.

Well I love mine. I've had faster cars, but this car has a fun factor like no other. You may also want to check out this thread too:How much did you pay for your SVTF ? Good luck and welcome to FF.

I get 23 in town and 30 on the freeway and have had 0 problems at 45,000 miles other than normal wear. It is an insanely great car!

Sweet... id like to own a 04 cobra to match with my foci hehe.. but ive got no money..

I like my car... ill keep it till the end, its not that fast but i like it.

hmm.. the clutch sucks.. i just bought a new one hope it lasts, hmm im at 43500 miles and the stock one is slipping bad. as i said i just spent 1 grand in my clutch with aluminium flywheel.

I usually get 24mpg city.. its stock just a tune and "cat-less"

there are a lot of threads about what you ask
