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.

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!

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.

A wonderful car with !flaws!

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.
