Rare 1992 Subaru SVX – AWD – $2900 (Eau Claire)

1992 Subaru Svx odometer: 180000 automatic transmission

I am selling my 1992 Subaru SVX. This is the first year that the SVX was sold with only 5,280 cars sold in the year making this car pretty rare.

The car is pretty much stock besides the paint, rims, and transmission.

The transmission was pulled from the car because the early SVX’s were plagued with transmission overheating problems. The original transmission was replaced with one from a newer car, unsure of year, it has just over 100k on it.

The paint on the car is Honda Fit orange and OEM black. I have a small paint can to go with so you have the paint code.

The rims are ADR 17. The tires were put on brand new last winter and have under 5k miles on them. They are 245/35/R17 all seasonal.

It has just over 180,000 miles on it. As far as I know it was only driven one winter but the AWD worked great. The body of the car is in pretty good condition with no rust. It does have a couple dings however, the biggest being on the rear bumper from someone backing into it. The only damage was cosmetic and is shown in the picture.

There are two other smaller spots I’ll point out in pictures.

The interior is in pretty good condition other then the steering wheel has some leather fade and some tearing in the drivers seat.The center console lid is missing. It also has an aftermarket pioneer radio that the previous owner installed. Because of this there is an open din slot.

The car runs and drives fine but does need a few things, as told from my mechanic.

The drivers side windwo is not on the track because a tiny clip inside broke and the part is not avaliable to purchase through Subaru, the passengers side does not work either. It needs new lower ball joints and a drivers side wheel bearing. It also has an exhaust leak but its not overly noisy.

Also it sometimes has a rough idle in the cold, assuming this is from the EGR valve because it used to through a code for it but no longer does. The ABS light is on but I believe its because the battery is low/old. (Info from the svx forums) It also needs rear brakes, not sure how bad they are seems to stop fine, front rotors,calipers,and pads were replaced about two months ago.The oil was changed with the tires so it should be good for a while longer.

I’ve never let the gas light come on since I’ve owned it and only ran 91 as recommended in the owners manual. I’ve kept almost all the receipts for anything that I’ve done to the car.

I’m selling because I bought a newer car with less miles for a daily driver and I need the money. The previous owner was a mechanic at a Subaru Specific shop in Menominee, the owner before him was the original owner and serviced the car there. If I could, I would keep the car and restore it. I’ve had the car in a pretty big show in the cities over the summer and its defiantly an attention getter.

Ideally this car would make a great project car but could be a daily driver. I’d love to see it go to a good owner that would take care of it.Text 715-Eight2Eight-5377 or email. Thanks
