97' SVX 99k - So Cal Must Sell Best Offer
 
I'm selling this car for my wife's assistent. The engine and transmisson work great but the interior could use some TLC. Car is Green/leather Tan, LSi. Car is in tip top shape EXCEPT for the following:

1) Sun roof doesn't open
2) Rear seat window swiches on driver door panel missing.
3) Air filter box missing - looks like after market air filter
4) Passenger window doesn't work
5) Some stickers on paint
6) A few small dents here and there
7) Paint on steering wheel - maybe finger nail polish

Click here for more pictures.

Trade in Blue book in fair condition is $4500. I think she may take less if offered. She paid $9000 4 months ago (OUCH!!)

Thanks, Tim 760-613-9101 cell

Sounds like some kids tried to rice it up. It might be an easier sell if #4 and #5 were resolved.

Have fixed both the items.

I can say from driving car that the engine runs great and the car handles very well. (But then again, I do drive the large truck shown in the picture - a WRX would be a rocket for me :D .)

97 svx
 
Wow! someone sure did bastardize that poor SVX. WTF is up with the steering wheel? It looks like a idiot with some paint had fun.
I would offer $2000

Holy $hit batman I warned everybody about this POS before. Notice shelfy post about the vin# link How many more owners since May, 04?

Looks like someone installed it on purpose. There are some people who like the look, like us 92 owners. ;) The rear seats, passenger airbag, door plate, and ODBII port are good evidence it is more likely a 97 with a 92 grill, rather then a 92 with a bunch of 97 upgrades.

Granted this one isn't in the greatest of shape, but it's not the one you saw, the VIN is different.

Yikes.....9,000??

Guess she didn't research much before buying huh??

Sorry to hear that and I hope she can get something decent for it, although I am in agreement with alltrac on the price being higher than I would pay. ($3000 wouldn't be too unreasonable)

alltrac 02-04-2005 08:26 PM

also. that car was manufactured only 8 after my polo green!

Alltrac, not sure if I should say thanks or not for all the attention. Are you saying this is the "same" car as the one shown in your link? I'm helping my wifes assistant sell this car. Her son bought it from a used car lot in Vista, CA four months ago for $9500. Not sure how much the car has changed since the purchase. The mother wants to get the most possible $$ out of it to recoup her losses.

Please advise if this is the same vehicle, VIN and all.

Thanks, Tim.

What's your point? The door plate pic says 9/96, which seems consistent with the claim that it's a 97. And the #193 serial seems to give creedence to the fact that it's a close cousin to his 97.

Re: Re: fishy svx
 
There are quite a number of places on the car which will have the VIN. Look for stickers and stamped plates under the hood, trunk wall and lid, dash, and other hidden places that I can't think of right now. If they all match, it is very unlikely that the VIN has been altered. Realistically on this car, it's not worth the effort.
