I've wanted one for a long time. Never seemed entirely practical for me to have a two door car though. Maybe someday. I seem them pop up on Craigslist from time to time usually for under a grand with a dead transmission or a half primed rice-ject that someone abandoned because they couldn't figure out how to fix some random issue.

Stamford Subaru still has that red 360 inside the dealer showroom, crazy how small it is in person.

When I reach retirement age (I've got a long ways until that happens!), and become physically-incapable of shifting my own gears anymore, I want to drive a Subaru SVX!

And then proceed to modify it and add some luxury features and have those mods look OEM.

You're going to go thru transmissions quicker than wheel bearings (a common failure for the SVX).

The SVX already has all the luxury mods ever made by Subaru. The only thing that needs changed usually is the stereo.

I know it's got a decent amount of luxury features (and most impressive for the time period it was released).

Just would like to add a few extras and then I'll be living the rest of my life comfortably with a comfortable and somewhat-fast Subaru :D

Since the SVX Transmissions trend to Fail frequently, somehow; if I had one SVX, I would do a Transmission Swap.

Not trying to thread jack but my dad has his 92 svx for sale. Its in good shape but does need some tlc from someone with more time than we have. It runs and drives but will stall out sometimes when shifting from park to drive. Wont die if you just tap the gas slightly when shifting. I took it for about an hour drive last night and it drove fine. PM me if anyones interested. Its had its trans rebuilt and a swaped jdm engine with paper work showing what was done. Its located near St. Helens OR.

This makes a good "You might be a Subaru owner if..."

have fixed many svx trans and they never fail agian i change out the forward drum and clutchpack for the one from a 98 outback is larger and has better oil flow. and i overfill the front diff 1.8 L and increase the cooler return line port and ditch the trans preshure soliniod reistor that alows the tcu to modify preshure. And the lower gears putt less load on the trans and the higher stall gets the engine into its power range.
