Re: 97 Svx

Earl,
You are missing my VIN, which is: JF1 CX8654 VH100370.

And the manufacture date is 10/96.

Any idea how many of the '97's are still around. I would assume many have not sent you the info on their cars ...

Harry

Re: 97 Svx

Would you please check the manufacture date on the door frame plate on the drivers side? That would help alot. Thanks

Re: 97 Svx

Hi guys. New member here.

I've just acquired #426 from gmaxum in Edmonton, and have brought it back to Calgary where it was originally sold.

97 Canadian LSi, Ebony Pearl on tan.
JF1CX8655VH100426
11/96 155,000 kms

Very clean vehicle. Needs a little TLC to get her back up to par, but plan to keep as stock as possible and use as a daily driver, especially in the winter.

PM sent to ensteele to update list. Glad to be aboard.

Re: 97 Svx

Did you buy it at Village Service Center? I saw it listed a while back and they were asking $5,000. It looked like a good one. Good to have you here.

Comments: The car was at Shortline Automotive in Colorado from 1997 to 2002. It was finally sold in 2002 with 168 miles on the odometer to a buyer in Northern California. From 2002 to 2009 the car accumulated 32,000 miles under the original owner. It was serviced by Downtown Subaru in Oakland only. I bought the car in October 2009 with 33,000 miles on the odometer.

Mileage: 103,XXX
Manufacture Date: 10/96
VIN: JF1CX8653VH100246

Comments: On 11/7/2009 I bought the SVX that was listed here: http://www.subaru-svx.net/forum/showthread.php?t=51890

Cosmetically very good for the age and miles. Just some stone chips on the nose and rear spoiler plus minor door dings and scuffs from parking lots. The plastic parts showed typical oxidation. The interior is beautiful. The only interior modifcation came from what looks like a dealer installed cell phone mount and remote antenna/repeater. Only wish the dealer had not screwed the mount directly into the side of the center console. Removing it will leave holes. The drivers side window switch cluster has a loose switch for the passenger rear window. Aside from this the interior is practically new.

Mechanically the car is in very good condition. I only found the following issues on my inspection:

Power steering whine (minor) - I observed a damp area under the power steering reservoir. The whine decreased significantly when the car was warm. I suspect that the 30 minute O-Ring fix listed on this forum will take care of it.

Shimmy under hard braking (major) - During the test drive I observed wheel shimmy under hard braking. Most likely this is warped front brake rotors although the seller thought that the rotors had been replaced recently. Light moderate braking had some puslsing but no shimmy. This is major because of safety but minor from a mechanical standpoint as the front rotors are easy to replace and I already planned to upgrade them anyway.

Clicking sound from rear at crusing speed (?) - On the ride home I noticed a faint to moderate clicking sownd (radio was off) coming from behind me. It sounded similar to the click when a cv joint is going bad. It was constant and varied in frequency with road speed. I really hope it isn't the rear diff but I haven't identified it yet. I'd appreciate it if anyone has ideas about this.

Jim
