  1. Auxiliary /USB port not workin!

    Subaru BRZ Audio and Navigation
    Hello all, I'm hoping for some collective wisdom here. Just brought home a 2013 Subaru BRZ. I've combed the internet and tried everything we've found to no avail. The aux and usb port will not recognize ANY device. We've tried different devices and phones. We've tried having bluetooth both...
  2. Ham Radio Gear

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Has anyone installed any two-way radio gear, such has amateur (ham) radio gear in a BRZ? Any problems? The manual has vague warnings about problems that could occur, but I think the owners manual for most cars probably does, too, just in an abundance of caution. I'd like to put 2-meter (VHF...

  4. Maintenance requirements

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Hi everyone! I am planning on retiring one of my vehicles and was looking at the BRZ. Seems a pretty reliable vehicle and lots of fun to drive. 3 questions for you: 1. What maintenance is required for this rwd vehicle? Oil changes every 6,000 miles or so (Mobil 1 ... 0W20? Or what?) and a rear...

  8. BRZ Owners in So Cal

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Southern California BRZ Owners, Do you always fill up with octane 91 fuel? Just bought my BRZ and recently found out that California gas stations predominately have 91 octane as the highest fuel, and that mixing a fuel gallons of 100 octane with 91 octane gives you 93. Anyone in this region do...
  9. Stick noobie, need help with gears

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hi, the title says it all. I'm learning stick on my BRZ, and it's been a few days. I stall less everyday that goes by (it's only been 4 days), but now that is not my biggest concern. My next concern is when I'm at a complete stop (usually in neutral, then shifting to 1st when I see the other...
  10. Oil Viscosity

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    My first Subaru. Recommended oil viscosity 0W-20. Hot summer driving at Interstate speeds would seem to require a higher viscosity. Does anyone have the knowledge to say what viscosity would be best under these conditions? More interested in engine longevity than economy. Do the engineers...

    My wait is finally over i picked up my WR Blue BRZ on Saturday and I have been driving it practically the entire time. I have spent a lot of time on this forum reading over the past few months as well as massive amounts of research (including reading the whole owners manual before buying it). I...
  12. What's wrong with the BRZ?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I've had mine for just two days the only thing I can find that isn't just about perfect is the inane touch screen nav/audio system. Frankly I would pay extra to delete it! The car is perfect to drive and I am still having to observe the break in 4,000 rpm "redline" specified in the Owners...
  13. So, I found something :)

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I'm sure many of you who are good upstanding members of society and read your owners manual before even starting a car already know this... but for the rest of you heathens, here you go. I discovered recently (thanks to the free Drive magazine Subaru sent me) that there is a 12v port in the...
  14. Unlocking passenger door?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I have a BRZ limited and have not found a way to unlock the passenger door without using the push button on the keyless remote. Only the driver door unlocks with the door handle sensor. If I go to the passenger door and pull the handle it unlocks both doors. That's how it's described in the...

  17. sD card removal

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    OK at the risk of sounding like an idiot, I have a question - Can someone tell me how to remove the sD card from the radio? I tried pulling at it, I have no fingernails, I don't want to put a flathead screwdriver behind it, so my question is - do you have to do something on the radio...
  18. Keyless entry stopped working completely

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So I've got a Limited 6MT and the other day my keyless entry stopped working completely. Unlock when you grab the handle? No. Pop the trunk with the button above the license plate? No. Press the button on the fob to unlock? No. I wound up having to pull out the mechanical key from the fob and...
  19. Fuel Additives

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    If 93 octane is best for my BRZ, what would happened if I dumped in a fuel additive that promises 100 or 107 octane? Would I see an increase in performance and/or would it damage the engine/fuel components? All this considering after I fill up with 93 premium fuel
  20. My impression after a few days...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    So far I am really liking the car. I had to drive to the city yesterday so I decided to take the BRZ instead of my daily driver. Was very impressed with the ride and handling of the car. Cruising along at 80 and still getting around 25 MPG? Can't really beat that! Lane changes were very...
