Working on the site redesign. It will have much of the same
"look" but will have more content. Currently I'm working on
revamping the picture area.
The revised site should be live in June, 2002.

A site with complete information on
Subaru's Luxury/Performance car
The SVX was Subaru's attempt to enter the once-popular luxury/performance
car category. The prototype was designed by renowned designer Giorgetto
Giugiaro of ItalDesign. Subaru produced around 25,000 SVXs from 1992 through
1997 (about 14,000 of these were imported to the United States).
The most striking feature of the car is the windows. The window design
of the SVX was created with the goal of good aerodynamics, unobstructed
visibility, and a distinctive appearance. The car sold for between $28,000
I own a 1994 LS and I've never had a car that's been more fun. It gets
looks from people where ever I go and the reactions are great. If you
can imagine a face that says "what the hell is that??!" then
you know the expressions I see every day as I drive around town. My SVX
has almost caused three accidents in the past two years from drivers looking
at my car and not the road. It's like having an affordable exotic car.
On the downside...because of its rarity, parts are relatively expensive.
And every car has its own set of predictable problems. The SVX has three
main faults: transmission failure, wheel bearing failure, and warped rotors.
The rotor problems are caused by the sheer weight of the SVX--3,600 pounds.
Subaru had never made such a heavy car and did not equip them with rotors
to match. The transmission and wheel bearings fail prematurely but corrections
can be made to extend their life. These and other issues are addressed
in the FAQ section of this website.
I only point out its flaws because if you're planning on buying a Subaru
SVX, you should be aware of its good and bad points. If you know the potential
problems going in, then you won't be surprised if they come up. But don't
let the problems scare you away. The SVX is a great car that one magazine
called "a cross between Porsche engineering and Jaguar refinement."
