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.
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 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.
