  2. Rattle when I decelerate?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    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?

After discussion with Subaru and because they could not fix the tranny whine they are offering to replace my 2013 with a 2015 ( same car)- KUDOS to Subaru for showing the...

  6. Just got a BRZ, I'm new to manual, and 1st gear is proving to be a challenge.

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I got a 2013 BRZ manual transmission yesterday. I've got about 2 hours of practice (half solo) and I constantly screw up getting into first gear. Once I'm in first I have no problem going to 2nd or 3rd and back down. I've watched a lot of youtube videos and had a friend ride with me for about...
  7. Less than 250 miles and shifting to 1st & 2nd feels a little hard...normal???

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    Hello, I just bought a 2015 BRS Limited in white pearl and I'm a little worried. 1) When I drove off the lot with 6 miles, shifting was crazy smooth. 220 miles later and shifting isn't quite as smooth anymore. Shifting is "feeling" a little "harder" in 1st and 2nd gear and I'm feeling/hearing a...

  10. Transmission clutch whine or sound- anyone?

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    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...
  11. Possible Snychro Issues + Dealership Hook Up

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hello All, Thought I'd share a couple things about my experience with my possible "synchro issue". So, I had the dreaded 2nd gear crunch and replaced fluid in the rear diff and tranny pumpkin. Used extra s fluid. Didn't resolve this issue. Now, after this I about flipped. Called my dealership...
  12. 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...
  13. What Performance chips do you guys use?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I'm curious what other people are using, I've seen a few chips that promote 25-60hp gains and 5-15% mpg increase, so I'm curious what other are using and what the real numbers are.

  16. Is there a 'reverse assist' feature?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    I know it sounds silly but I used to be able to do this thing where I would put it in reverse and ease off the clutch and the engine would engage without me pressing on the gas pedal. Going too far will obviously stall but it was enough to get out of the driveway with considerable momentum. I...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    the obvious answer from you guys would be yes... however, i would like to know if i am getting a decent deal. I visited my subaru dealer yesterday and after a test drive and blah blah blah, he offered me $25,800 for a black 2014 brz limited. of course i know the rule to never buy a new car...
  19. Break-in period

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I am a new driver and my first car was the BRZ. I had not known about the break in period and I drove the car fairly hard. Drifting every once in a while and bringing it over 4k RPM all the time. I probably red lined a couple times. I currently have 2,700 miles on the car and no problems. Could...
  20. Turbo Charge your BRZ? Are you mad?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Is it just me, or are there other people out there that think it would be idiotic to turbo charge a BRZ. The thing to think about when turbo charging the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder Boxer Engine, that Subaru put in this beauty, is the turbo lag that would almost definitely come with it. I may be wrong...
