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?"
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 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

I bought car new as leftover 94 model
in 95 at a bargain price ($7000 under
sticker). The car gets used about 3000
miles per year. It has had no needed
repairs in 20,000 miles. High quality
fit and finish. Great Suede leather
interior. High fun to drive factor with
unique looks. Looks as new the day I
bought it with design still looking
innovative after 9 years. Great
areodynamics resulting in virtually no
wind noise even with windows down.
I think many factors were responsible for the death of the SVX. The main one in MHO was the market for 2 dr coupes nosedived in the 90's. Look at all the other coupes that met a similar fate, Nissan 3...
