    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I have lately noticed, with the coming of Fall, that our beloved little beasts have several areas that are collection pockets for leaves and other debris. Just today after work, I noticed dried leaves sticking out from between the front wheel well liner and the body. In other vehicles I have...

    Subaru BRZ How to / Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Hello, Today I tried pulling out the speed sensor mounted to my transmission on the passenger side in my 1996 Subaru Impreza. I'm now worried that it wasn't the speed sensor at all. It looks nothing like speed sensors I've found online. It also look like something was broken, maybe when I...

  18. Living Through Winter With a 2013 Subaru BRZ

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    One of the biggest questions we wanted to answer by purchasing a long-term 2013 Subaru BRZ tester was whether the sports coupe is capable of driving year-round in winter’s ugliest conditions.

    :( I took delivery of my WRB BRZ LTD on January 12th and in two months, I have ~2000 miles on it. I refuse to drive it, and drive only on the weekends, for the most part. Never in rainy weather. My backup car is a nice 1976 Ford Thunderbird, in decent conditional and a somewhat collector car...

    Subaru BRZ Exterior and Body
    My dealer is suggesting I add extra dealer applied rust proofing to the car because of the salt and other chemicals on our Michigan roads. Anyone else hear this sales pitch? Is it valid?
