1997 Subaru SVX LSi 2dr Coupe AWD


Review

I have owned 2 SVX's, and they look awesome, but I will not own another one because on both of these cars, the transmission went out, and it's EXTREMELY expensive to fix it. I found out that this transmission problem is typical on these cars...what a shame. If I had an Art Gallery, I'd have this car there...as long as it's not driven; it just looks good, but that's where it ends.


Best Features

The exterior look and design!


Worst Features

The transmission.

Review

This is the second SVX I have owned, and
it is a total shame that Subaru stopped
making this car. It has been excellent
in every way. It has had no service
needs other than scheduled service, is
incredibly powerful and is great for
merging onto the highways, yet for such
power gets good gas mileage about 26.5
on the highway and 23.5 in town. I will
never sell the car, I intend to keep it
as a fun toy and hope that as it ages I
can get parts. It handles like a dream
and makes me feel safe on the road. It
is best for smaller people, tall ones
feel slightly cramped for head height
but not leg room. If you can get your
hands on a used one, you will never let
it go.


Best Features

Power and comfort


Worst Features

Make more of them!!!!

Review

This is a great car. Everything from
the automatic climate control to the
230 horsepower engine make this
car a quality ride. While parts are
slightly more expensive then most, it
is a well built AWD car that screams
excitment
