1996 Subaru SVX
The SVX was a sports car sold by Subaru from 1991 until 1997. It was the first luxury sports car made by Subaru, and it was only available with all wheel drive. The Subaru SVX replaced the XT6 in the United States.

The base model SVX was the LS, and it had an MSRP of about $25,000. The top model LS-L was about $28,000 when new.

The engine on the SVX was a 3.3 liter EG33 flat 6 cylinder that made 230 horsepower. It was paired with a 4EAT 4 speed automatic engine. It seems a bit strange that a sports car from a Japanese manufacturer was not sold with a manual transmission option. It's important to remember that this was also considered a luxury car by Subaru, which may explain part of the reason why they avoided the stick shift.

Despite a high price, the SVX sold very well in the United States at first. Over 5,000 were sold in the first year, and about 4,000 were sold in the second year. Subaru was expecting higher sales for some reason, with targets set at 10,000 for each year. By 1997, just 640 Subaru SVXs were sold. The car was discontinued after that year.

Some known problems on the SVX include the transmission screen filter on 1992 and 1993 models that would clog and cause the transmission to overheat and fail. Brake rotors were also known to warp due to overtorque on the lug nuts. One unusual problem will be encountered by anyone driving this car who wants to use an E-Z Pass transmitter. The titaniam dioxide coating on the windshield will block RFID signals, so the E-Z Pass must be installed on the outside of the car. That can look rather ugly, in my opinion.

The SVX has not hold its value very well. You can find them on eBay for just a few thousand dollars, which is a fraction of the original sticker price. These are still really nice cars with a decent sports car engine, and I think they've got a good chance of becoming a collectors car and increasing in value in the years to come.
