very race worthy on any track!

by Jerry from somerset pa on Thu Apr 01 2010

i have a 92 svx. AWD. 4 speed auto. not big enough for family size but will commodate 2 adults and 2 kids comfortably. 6 inches clearance underneath. great all weather vehicle(with all seasons or M&S tires) not good all terrain because of low clearance. AWD works great when stuck in snow or mud! handles curves at high speed awesome. great acceleration and high speed. great looking car! i get stared at all the time! windows are only half way, which is unique looking but sometimes a pain. windows are very curved and hard to aftermarket tint. goes threw brakes and rotors fast because of the weight. tranny is weak due to all the hp in an automatic tranny. a cooler and regular flushes will help maintain it. spark plugs are hard to change because of the H6. every option available inside. climate control. leather interior. all power. sunroof. i love the car! will beat most stock cars around! the pros outweigh the cons in owning this car and are worth it!

Great Car

by Convert from MA on Sat Nov 21 2009

I have a '96 SVX and have owned it for 11 years - 126k miles. Great car. AWD performance is excellent, especially in poor weather. I use mine as a daily driver & commute 30 miles daily. AVG fuel is 20 mpg on the back-lane commute - typ 24 mpg on the freeway. Great high-speed cruiser - low revving overdrive. Needs all-season tires in the winter - stock Bridgestone's are terrible - Nokians work REALLY well. Only replacements so far are fuel-pump relay, front rotors, shocks, alternator and power steering pump. Also had to replace all of the ignition coils (6). Car runs great and always gets looks. I would absolutely recommend it.

svx

by subyguy from Pennsylvania on Thu Mar 15 2012

This car is completely unique. It is fast and extremely reliable. for a 20 year old car it is very high tech. cd and cassette player. outside temperature display. Smooth ride, just an awsome car.

71 years old forgot some of the women and cars I've been with in all sizes, powers and types both foreign and domestic: but this one car looks sharp and feels sharp too.

A wonderful car with !flaws!

by PsyDoc from osceola, wisconsin on Wed May 18 2011

I learned to both love and hate my SVX. A very nice drive, lots of useful accessories, and pretty to look at in its Eggplant coloration. The problem came with cold weather. I park at motels frequently, and at -15F it quickly flooded. And it wouldn't restart from a jump truck; had to be garaged for hours. Worse, 3 times it simply stopped running when on the highway. One it resstarted, twice it had to be towed in. The possible explanation was a misreading by a sensor in the gas tank that was designed to shut the motor down if the car was upside down. I traded the vehicle before I learned more.

Our Take on the 1992 Subaru SVX

The Subaru SVX is a sterling example of why image is so important to a car company.

Who would think that one of this year's best sport coupes would be wearing a Subaru badge and a window sticker with a price dangerously close to $30,000?

Before this model year, Subaru's only other attempt at a sports coupe was the ghastly XT, a poor copy of the wedge-shaped Triumph TR7. The XT, finally put to rest last year, was one reason Subaru's place was secure in the bush leagues of the auto industry.

But all that may change with the launch of the SVX.

This is a serious sports coupe. The styling - by Italian car designer Gioretto Giugiaro - is fresh, original and right on target for those who... Read More
