1995 Subaru SVX LS 2dr Coupe


Review

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.

1995 Subaru SVX L 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

I love the all-wheel-drive, passing those camaros and mustangs in the snow brings a smile to my face evrytime. I also love the fact that the car heats up pretty quickly during the coldest winter nights. It has very reasonable amount of trunk space, with fold-down rear seats. Its a great car.


Worst Features

A 5 or 6 speed would of been THE final touch to an amazing driving expierence.

Review

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.


Best Features

Winter/summer, just set the climate control to 72 degrees and drive. Fold down back seats open to trunk. Handles as if on rails. Automatic trans okay; so you can hold a drink or cell phone and attempt to drive (this gets tougher to do with a standard shifter).


Worst Features

Bring back the SVX. More headroom please. The metal is so-so thin and tends to collect dings (how about a strip guard). The WRX SCi is a 4 cyl with a turbo. I can't even think of what the SVX 6cyl with a turbo would have been like (Porsche 911 Turbo?).

Review

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.


Best Features

highway power, passing ability, ease of care, ease of operating, technical capabilities


Worst Features

none
