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?"
The style, the engine, and the ability to turn a corner at 120
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.
The way it handles when your locked in at 65 mph and you seem to be gliding across the road, but you can't feel the pavement. Also the windows that attract the other drivers and the classy look of the stainless steel exhaust system with the dual oblong chrome pipes.
Maybe rear wheel drive like the Z-cars were. The boxer engine was way ahead of its time as 14 years later they are putting the same 3.3 boxer engine in the new 2006 Tribeca B9 SUV.
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
Many highly-engineered features for a
1994 model, like the multi-mode power
shifting with accelerator pedal
sensing. Very little breakdown
repairs - CD player trouble and bad
pwr steering pump. No vibration, wind
or road noise at any speed (even > 110
Subaru should have marketed this car
more agressively and kept it around.
Would have been easier on pocketbook
if it burned regular gas and got
