Jeez... feeling pretty good about my '03 SVT EAP. Just turned 70k with no significant issues so far. Original clutch, brakes, etc. Rear wheel alignment is sensitive, cups the rears on the inside if not perfect. Sure wish it had more torque down low, pulling away on the slightest incline with A/C running is dicey, at best. Otherwise, I've been happier with this than my '00 GTI VR6 which seemed to always have something flaky going on with it. Miss the smooth, torquey 6-cylinder however. Wish Ford had continued to refine and update this model instead of the generic looking and driving Focus out now.

Tell Ford to put Mazda3's 2.5 into the next Focus, damn it! What happened after the '07 2.3 ST sedan?

My buddy has a Ford Focus SVT (dual overhead cam vin starts with five, year falls between 2000 to 2007) and his transmission is stuck in third but the shifter itself is stuck in fourth. He says that on his way to work this morning that he went to shift from third to fourth and his vehicle remained in third while the shifter went to fourth and would not come out. It also will start in third. Have a Haynes manual and this problem is a little too specific for it or maybe I'm just overlooking the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
