1997 Subaru SVX 2 Dr LSi AWD CoupeReview
Love It. — Gas mileage is average at best, usually around 20 mpg and about 27 on the freeway. Performance is pretty good, it makes a great sound getting up to redline but the car is way too heavy. Parts are hard to come by and repairs are overly costly but this is a car that absolutely loves corners. No other car can bring this much thrill for the price.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Fun, Fast, and Looks you either love or hate.
