Re: Hijack this thread: The Sequel!!

I have owned quite a few myself but have changed my opinion about them over the years. Well, with exception of the SVX--it is still one of the classiest cars on the road. Other Subarus are well above average in moderate snow, near the top on safety, but from there things go down hill rapidly. I would NEVER pay for a new Subie. Now IF you can do a lot of your maintenance--it is pretty friendly in that area. All other areas there are much better choices out there. I started with Subies in the South as no one knew what they were and low mileage used ones were dirt cheap. Just saying my opinion--

Ducking now to dodge all the flak!!

Nicely Done!

Personally, I have only owned 6 but my Father bought Family Subaru #18 not too long ago.

Re: Hijack this thread: The Sequel!!

i had to give an FYI to someone who wrote an article on Autoblog yesterday ...

"That car was the SVX, built for the 1992 through 1996 model years. Here's a final-model-year SVX ..."


uh, there were '97's ...

How odd would SVX wheels look on a 2018 Legacy? I’m thinking very. TH

The SVX World Forums is no longer in existence. The SVX World Network page on Facebook has been archived on December 1, 2017. You can't create posts, like, comment or add more members, but you can still view all posts.

The SVXNATION on Facebook is very strong and supported with many of the network members over there. Seems more social, but has its limitations.

The network will continue to be the searchable repository for technical information and resources.
