2013 Subaru BRZ Love Letter

Love it! This car is so much fun to drive at reasonable velocities it's amazing. Zip zip and chuckles all around. Sure the ride is a little rough but it's supposed to be because if it wasn't it wouldn't be so precise. Flick flick and a quick row through the gears, so satisfying. The steering is confidence inspiring and the brakes rock. It is what I think of when I think sports car, it's not about fast because it's not, all about engaging and inspiring.

It's been a bit over 5,000 miles since I got the car and it's averaging just a hair under 29 mpg with a 50/50 mix of (running hours of) urban and suburban streets and 55-65 limit highways. All of it on winter gas and with winter tires after the first three tanks so I hope to do better on the opposite end of the year. I don't have a light foot but I try to maximize the efficiency when I'm on the road.

It may not be the prime family car for a family of four but it works with a few complaints from the other three members. I would not consider it an only car unless you are single as even most couples occasionally need more space.

Everybody keeps calling the color mid life crisis white ...


Everybody keeps saying it needs more power, it doesn't, they are missing the point.

Well, I've had the car for 33,000 miles now and I still giggle like a little kid when I drive it. I couldn't ask for a more reliable car and it has averaged a touch over 30mpg overall! You have to be careful though, it likes to cruise about 25% above the speed limit :)
