    Anyone recognize this sound? Had my transmission replaced in a manual- yes transmission! and to no avail- sound occurs when at around 3-4000 and depressing clutch. Dealer covered the repair BUT its back. Thought it was a throwout bearing- wasn't. I do not drive this car hard- just a daily...
  8. Clutch Noise / Grinding

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Couldn’t find any threads specific to this so I thought I’d start one. When pushing in the clutch pedal, there is a pretty ugly noise coming from under the hood, it doesn’t do it all the time but when it does it’s loud and noticeable. Because it’s intermittent, it shut up as soon as I took it...

    Subaru BRZ Interior Appearance
    The leather on the side of my car's driver seat has been slightly ripped/damaged, and the car is only about 6 months old. I fear that it will get worse. What is the best way to repair this or at least cover it up? Ideally, would the dealer's warranty cover this?
  11. BRZ vs Lifted 4x4

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    You get the picture ... Add wet rain and Friday traffic to the mix. Anyway ... I was able to get 1300 miles in the 9 days that I owned my BRZ, before it was used as additional braking for a lifted 4x4. Insurance wants to fix it instead of replacing it ... So any recommendation of a BRZ...
  12. Question about paint scratch

    Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    I'm about to purchase a used 2013 brz and the owners mentionned some hit and run caused half an inch of paint damage. They sent the car to some car paint business (they have receipt) and the car looks new, but I'm wondering if rust is an issue is the foreseeable future. How much does this event...
  13. Did the Subaru mechanic take my car for a joy ride?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I am little pissed here, not sure if I should be. I have been buying new cars since 1980 and always had them serviced by their respective dealers. Most mileage put on them is 5 or less. I had the fuel pump replaced today, picked up the car, someone put on 40 miles. To me, that's a frickin'...

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Not sure if this post belongs here or not but I'll ask anyway. So, I have the TSW Gunmetal NURBURGRING wheels on my car and I've gotten a couple of significant scrapes on the edges of them. Could I use plastic dip or something similar to touch those up so they're not so noticeable? I see there...
