This is a great and under rated car. It handles in all kind of weather, always starts, never breaks down so it costs way less than my previous Ford to maintain. The style is Italian designed and still turns heads. Given the limited number built and sold in the USA it gets rarer by the day. I have 125,000 miles and plan to go to 200,000 with confidence. My only complaint is that the level of interior finish could have been better.

I have owned this car for 5 years and
I love it. I have had a couple of
repairs to do on it, but I'd do
anything to keep this car. The
aftermarket is starting to heat up, as
well. A new 350+ hp supercharger kit
will be out soon and there are
countless amounts of aftermarket parts
such as, exhaust, intake, brakes,
interior and exterior accessories are
available now. If Subaru decides to
bring this car to the market again, it
would be a great seller.

I wanted a car that would get good gas
milage and would get me up and down
the steep hills during a snow storm.
I got lucky and bought a 1995 SVX AWD
and have been very happy. Try 28mpg on
the highway with a lot of extra peddal
to go; about 90 mph @3500rpms. I get
about 19mpg city. This car takes
premium gas. I had no trouble getting
up to Alta, Utah, for a powder ski day
when only 4x4's and cars with chains
were allowed up the canyon. Under the
paint is a zinc coating to help reduce
corrosion - so smart! Fender wells
designed to keep splashes/road tar
from going all over the car's body.
Overall great (Italian)styling.

For your money, this is the best built
car available, it is luxurious, sporty,
comfortable, roomy (even for smaller
rear passengers). easy to operate, easy
to maintain. Everything about the SVX
is designed with the driver in mind.
city driving is ok, stop and go driving
takes its toll on the fuel tank, but it
makes commutes easier, it is an
absolutely wonderful long-trip car.
very quiet and comfortable, and good
highway milage for what it is! i have
had it a year and am very attached.

The demise of the SVX after fewer than
15,000 vehicles were sold says more
about Subaru's ability to sell this
type of car than about the car itself.
It is a marvelously fun-to-drive sports
car with outstanding reliability. It
never fails to catch attention. It is
an excellent highway car and, unlike
most sports cars, performs very well in
snow. I LOVE IT.
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...
