1992 Subaru SVX LS 3.3L H6 from North America
Fun to drive, but you need to find the right one. I didn't
Climate control would turn off and on over bumps.
Transmission would slip out of second and third into neutral.
The car would bottom out pulling into the driveway.
Driver's side motorized seat belt was stuck in the "belted" position.
I really hope that I just got a poorly maintained car. I loved the styling and performance of my SVX. I knew that they were notorious for transmission issues when I bought it, but the extensive test drive I took didn't reveal them. Turns out the owner had just tightened down the band and added a bottle of Lucas Stop Slip to the transmission fluid.
The car was really fun to drive. The AWD and the height of the car really make it handle well. I would buy another in a heartbeat if it had a recently rebuilt transmission or a WRX 5 speed swap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
