    Intermittent center dash vibration/ rattle since brand new. Music and road bumps Make it rattle. Noise is loud and sometimes only lasts a few minutes to half hour. May appear once or twice a day then disappear for two weeks. 2018 BRZ 50th Anniversary. Anyone else have this?

    Last night I installed a new exhaust and drove it around, everything seemed fine until I started it this morning and noticed when I'm at 4000 RPM and decelerating there's is a rattle noise and it sounds like it's under the hood but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what it could be or how to fix it?

    Anyone experiencing a rattling noise around 2800 RPMs that sounds like knocking or detonation? It occurs under light load when I mash on the gas quickly. I had a dealership recommend switching to a top tier gas (Exxon, Shell, etc.) for a few tankfuls but haven't seen any improvement.

    Hello! I just test drove a '13 BRZ with about 18k miles on it and only noticed one thing wrong. When pulling away from a stop in 1st gear for the first couple seconds it would make a loud clunking/rattle that sounded like it was coming from between the shifter and the storage tray behind it. Has...

    I'm close to buying a 2014 Subaru BRZ Limited. But I've been reading a lot about the issues on the car. Besides looking out for: 1. Chirping idle noise 2. Clunky shifting in 2nd/3rd gear 3. Rear deck rattle 4. Idle drop Anything else I should keep an eye out for if I'm able to pick and choose...

    I know there are multiple threads on this issue, and I've read all of the relevant ones I could find on this and "another forum," but I'm still looking for ideas here before I give up and bring my car to the dealer. I have a rattle coming from the area of the dash speaker on the left/driver's...

    So I've had my BRZ for less than a week, having picked it up on Saturday. I've only found two things I don't like about the car. There is no arm rest and the factory speakers are just garbage. Surely something is wrong and they can't possibly be this bad! They sound great and very clear. The...

    I had my local Subaru dealer install the 10 inch Kicker subwoofer 2 days ago (finally became available in early July). I read some feedback on another site that someone in Texas had gone with it and felt it made the factory system much better. Well, it is an improvement, but now the bass seems...

    shameless photo of my baby: So I noticed that a lot of people have been having problems with their rearview mirrors either getting loose, or falling off completely. Should be covered under warranty, so if you have a dealership near you and don't mind waiting for them to fix it, then I would...

    Bought my BRZ on 01/12/2013 and it has 6500 miles on it. Already a speaker rattle. I have never abused the audio system, mostly listen to smooth jazz at a listenable level and not over-booming. My questions is, should I ask the dealer to replace the speaker? I have played with the equalizer...

    anybody notice with A/C on and braking for a stop, the idle drops to 500rpm for a second and engine sounds like a quiet jackhammer? or diesel? it's got to be the direct fuel injection making the noise as the engine almost stalls. any TSB's for this?

    Didn't see any post on this in the search, so I decided to put this out there. Just saw this in an email for Motor Trend. It seems like a pretty good and very cheap alternative to the clear bra. Anyone seen this or have any first hand experience with it? 3M Auto: Products for People Who Love Cars

    I just bought my baby on Thursday. She finally told me her name today - Kasai (means fire in Japanese) and her she is :o All spiffy cleaned from my dealer having her detailed. Considering how our relationship happened, I could not be any happier with her. Long story short, my coolant...

    Has anyone successfully quieted down the cabin with sound deadening? If so what did you use and where did you put it? Thanks
  17. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    So I started noticing my rearview mirror vibrating a few weeks ago... Took my BRZ in yesterday for a tire rotation/oil change... Two blocks from leaving the dealership and my rearview mirror fell off. I went back and they said there was a defect in how Subaru manufactures them... Something...

    I just received a survey to complete from JD Power & Associates and can't wait to complete it when I get home. Also it had a crisp new $1 bill as a token of thanks for completing the survey.

    A rattling noise on the passenger side just started this morning. I have 1,200 miles on the car. I believe the noise to be in the passenger side dashboard or speakers. The noise becomes noticable at 45 MPH. Has anyone else experienced this problem. If so, how did you fix the problem? Thanks.

    I've got a clacking/rattling sound coming from what seems to be my transmission. Car has 3200 miles on it: It did not happen when new. It only happens when the car is cold (ambient temp in Oly is 39 for whatever that's worth) I've only heard it at idle (probably due to road noise) you push...
