What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability And Durability of the Subaru BRZ

Subaru BRZ Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 2dr Coupe 200-horsepower 2.0L H4
6-speed manual RWD
The manual transmission in this car is very overbuilt for this application. It was donated by Toyota, and is the unit that was in the previous-generation Lexus IS, which had 50-100 more horsepower and 100 lb/ft more torque. Buy a Subaru/Scion. . .and get a Lexus transmission. Triple synchros on gears 1-3 are very rare, and may be nonexistent on cars in this price range. This is expensive engineering, and is only available here because Toyota already had an off-the-shelf Lexus unit ready to go. Downshifts are a snap: No grinding, bucking, mechanical complaints. The Torsen limited slip differential is also a big plus. full 2013 Subaru BRZ review
