What kind of product did you have in mind for the transmission? Because honestly, even if it needs special attention to things like the transmission, I really like this car and wouldn't mind that haha. (after a test drive of course.)Also, there are several SVXs that are currently not running, selling for parts, for around 500-750 in my area. Is that a reasonable way to get parts for a car like this, or should I just look up individual parts if I ever needed them? I'm relatively new to the car world, my Legacy is my first car so I'm no pro. Another update! Just found a 92 svx, doesn't specify how many miles, however he swapped the transmission for a 4.44 Outback trans. And it has the 3.3l flat 6 engine. It has aftermarket black 18in alloy wheels, AND he is including a parts car. $2k. I feel like I should jump on this, any thoughts?
rssardis posted a topic in 1990 to Present Legacy, Impreza, Outback, Forester, Baja, WRX&WrxSTI, SVXHey guys, I'm new here. I currently have an 01 Legacy GT Limited with about 118k miles on it. Love this car, no mechanical problems at all. However, I've been eyeing a 1995 SVX LSi with 92k miles on it, for $2k. First question, is this a good deal? Exterior and interior look clean, I haven't taken it for a spin yet but the seller doesn't list any mechanical issues. Second question, am I crazy for wanting to get rid of my 01 Legacy for this? Like I said, I love my car, but I want something a little more powerful and sporty. This SVX seems like a good choice for me, because I love having the safety of AWD, but want something with a little more kick. Basically, I plan on buying this car and giving my current Subie to my sister who is currently a broke college student. Is it a bad call for me to get rid of my current ride, for this one? Thanks guys.
