    Hello fellow brz owners, I just purchased my brz last week. Grey metallic limited 6mt. I have about 400 miles (mostly due to the long drive back from the dealership). Lately I have been hearing this rattling noise when I am breaking while in neutral/in gear. I took it to the dealer and had a...

    AVG mpg 25.5 right now, not great to be honest but a lot of city driving. Wondering if I should get the ECU flash and change the chirping oil pump, if that will help.

    I'm curious if anyone has developed any problems with their 1st run BRZs so far. Has it proven to be reliable? Is the engine still going strong or has the interior fallen apart yet?

    I brought my car in for it's first oil change at the dealership and let them know I have the chirping. It honestly doesn't bother me but they showed me the Subaru TSB for the fix.

    I took my BRZ in to get the oil changed last week and alerted the head mechanic about the engine noise (crickets) and transmission rattle I experience. He just gave me a call and told me that he has parts on order to fix the engine noise issue. He explained that it is related to a plunger...

    Noticed a worrisome smell after driving lately. Seeps into cabin and can smell faintly around engine compartment. Smells like burnt oil or exhaust from an old farm truck. Think this is normal?
  18. CEL Came on. Rough idle, almost stalled

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Seems to be a common problem from what I'm reading. I got back from about a 45 minute drive, parked my car and noticed that the "chirping sound" was louder than usual. Then the rpms dipped a few times before almost completely stalling as it went down to about 200. At that point the CEL...
