They have decent power, but are slow because

A. They weigh 3500+ pounds.
B. AWD
C. Only come in automatics.

Plus its a boxer 6, so it's hard to work on. Don't buy it.

Screw what the others said, that could be fix with tunning (well except the window). I would point out that they had problems with the tranny dying.

I remember coming across a forum 2 years ago that had a good collection of aftermarket parts for them. Appearantly, their aftermarket is pretty small.

AWD rules
and if it doesnt work out you can always go redneck on it and drop a 350 , anything flies with a 350
speaking of wich , this dealer out by my ouse has a roush wich says 427 on the fender ,it still runs the 4.7 but that is one sick stang

I've always like the SVX and the XT Coupe. I thought doing a WRX or STi engine swap in either would be cool. The XT and SVX were too ahead of their time to be really appreciated. Similar to the Delorean, in my opinion. If they had modern engines, transmissions and other modern technology, they would be awesome!

I'd rather spend the money on a 93-01 generation Impreza coupe.

Seeing how rare and unpopular they are/were, I don't think it would be wise to buy one.
