This Is An Extremely Well Engineered Vehicle That Combines Luxury, Style, Great Looks — I am the owner of the pristine car in the photo. My modifications to the engine, braking, exhaust and suspension make this car much more responsive than when it was new. Currently has 130,000 miles. Absolutely perfect in every way. Gas mileage averages around 24mpg, getting about 380 miles to the tank. With proper maintenance, these cars can go 350,000 miles or more on the original engine

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Wonderful Car For A Person With A Sense Of Adventure And Style. — I love this car. It goes really fast and corners as though on rails. Bought it new in 1996. I am 61 yrs old, female, and find this car as fun now as I did when my husband purchased it for me as a gift. Yes, it had some significant problems with brake rotors while new. It is so fine looking!

Svx Is Amazing — Bought it with 87k on it and have put on 4k thus far. It is so much fun. It may be slow off the line and look different from most cars but thats what makes it great. It corners well and grips extremely well. (It should considering its 3600 pound curb weight) Just a great car.
