1994 Subaru SVX Coupe L 2dr Coupe


Review

I absolutely love this car. The engine is strong, and the style is second to none. I have added an aftermarket exhaust, that does not sound like a bumble bee, instead it purrs like a porsche. This is the most fun I have had in a car in a long time. The only thing I hate is the first question out of everyones mouth "what's up with the windows?"


Best Features

The style, the engine, and the ability to turn a corner at 120


Worst Features

Cupholders and a 5speed

1994 Subaru SVX Coupe LS 2dr Coupe


Review

Owned this car for 12 years and have not found another one to replace it. Smooth driving and fun. Still get people asking what is that? And they can't believe it is a Subaru.


Best Features

The exterior style. Clean and futuristic. Looks like a much more expensive car. The interior with the nice stereo is also great on trips.


Worst Features

When I bought it, it was near perfect for the year. Of course now would want side airbags and radio controls on steering wheel.

Review

I bought this car after driving the FWD as I liked the look in 1992, but until I drove the FWD is when I fell in love. I have 92,000 miles on the Laguna Blue Beauty & heads turn to try and guess what car it is. I still have the original Bridgestone tires and think I will get new ones soon. For anyone interested in these '92-'97 SVX's, if you buy one get the FWD as the ones with the AWD seem to have transmission & wheel bearing issues, which I never had even though I change the oil & filters more often than normal. Owning a car like this makes you feel different as on the highway it purrs better than any other car I've driven, so enjoy being different.


Best Features

The way it handles when your locked in at 65 mph and you seem to be gliding across the road, but you can't feel the pavement. Also the windows that attract the other drivers and the classy look of the stainless steel exhaust system with the dual oblong chrome pipes.


Worst Features

Maybe rear wheel drive like the Z-cars were. The boxer engine was way ahead of its time as 14 years later they are putting the same 3.3 boxer engine in the new 2006 Tribeca B9 SUV.

1994 Subaru SVX Coupe LSi 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

Best car I've ever purchased. Period. Subaru's unbelievably well-kept secret sports car. 10 years old and runs like new. The style was way ahead of its time. Still turns heads. Terrific sports car in the summer, turning into a virtual snowplow in winter with its full-time AWD. Extremely safe: heavy chassis, wide tires that grip all road surfaces, 4-channel antilock brakes, etc. It will be hard to part with it; there is nothing on the market like it today.


Best Features

Many highly-engineered features for a 1994 model, like the multi-mode power shifting with accelerator pedal sensing. Very little breakdown repairs - CD player trouble and bad pwr steering pump. No vibration, wind or road noise at any speed (even > 110 MPH).


Worst Features

Subaru should have marketed this car more agressively and kept it around. Would have been easier on pocketbook if it burned regular gas and got better mileage.

Review

Built to last! Keep up with the maintenance and it's a dream come true. 3 sets of tires, three timing belts f/ normal maintance - beat that!


Best Features

Performance, appearance, reliable! Quiet running, smooth driving and handling; it always performs well in any weather, love it all!


Worst Features

Wish the style would come back! We need more cars like it these days.
