About Subaru SVX
Subaru SVX, also known as Subaru Alcyone SVX in its home market Japan, is a 2-door grand tourer coupé manufactured by Japanese automaker Subaru division of Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) from 1991 to December 1996. The first Subaru SVX was introduced in the United States in July 1991 as a 1992 model to replace the Subaru Alcyone XT and Subaru Leone RX as FHI'S first attempt to enter the luxury/performance car market. In fact, Subaru SVX is really a very veritable performance car and has won the Alcan Winter Rally in 1991.
The Subaru SVX actually was designed based on the Subaru Alcyone SVX concept vehicle that was unveiled at the 1989 Tokyo Auto Show. It was offered in SVX-L and LS-L trim levels in North American market at first then a XR model was added in 1992. In 1996, the top-of-the-line trim LSi replaced the LS-L trim. As a 2-door coupé, Subaru SVX was powered by only one 3.3 L EG33 H6 engine that could produce 231 horsepower and 228 pound-feet of torque. At the same time, the exclusive engine was fitted along with a 4-speed 4EAT automatic transmission. At last, Subaru SVX was replaced by the Subaru Impreza Coupe and Subaru BRZ due to its sluggish sales.
Subaru SVX Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
People love Subaru SVX in its high performance and exquisite design. However, as time passes by, performance may decrease and design may fade. If the continuous prim condition is what you want to find in your Subaru SVX, then you should know these:
First, engine performance suffered. As accumulation of mileage, though it is unavoidable that engine performance reduce, it fails prematurely, however is not normal. Subaru SVX drivers told that they could hear metallic noises coming from the engine; at the meantime, the engine gulps more oil than usual. Rough running engine would lose power while accelerating and Check Engine Light would come on as well from time to time. If your Subaru SVX is also showing these symptoms, you had better get the SVX oil filter and SVX timing cover inspected thoroughly.
Second, suspension failure. Proper operation suspension system is very essential for comfortable and safe driving experience as your Subaru SVX is meant to provide excellent trip. Subaru SVX owners, however, have complained that the excessive vibrating steering wheel and play in the wheels would make it difficult for them to handle the vehicle. Grinding or roaring sounds from the tire area would not only distract their attention but scare them a lot. If above signs are what you do not want to experience, then please make sure your SVX wheel bearing and SVX coil spring insulator working properly all the time.
