I bought the car and they did not disclose all the accidents the car has been in. Ive had it about three weeks and its been in the shop now for the THIRD time with electrical issues because it was repaired with spit and bailing wire.

Overall:

The pros: Interior is nice and solid, feature packed on the limited model. The shifts are very precise with no shifter vibration or rattle. The steering feedback is great. This is truly a drivers car in these aspects. The cons: The big oof. The gas pedal is heavy amd has a huge delay. About 3/4 pressing down on the pedal gave no response and after that there is about 1/10 of a second delay. The big oof jr. The clutch pedal is very light. You get no feedback from it. Feeling the clutch engagement is non existent. Luckily there are after market springs that will fix that. The nitpick. Car feels relatively weak. The weight to power ratio makes it slow. The car is meant to be driven at the higher rpm range on the track though. I guess it just depends what you want to use the car for. Gets great mpgs at least. Overall its not a bad car but has some issues that should not have been overlooked from the factory.

I love all the cars features. I think this car is a very good value. The one thing its missing is sun roof. I would compare it to Scion FRS and Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

2017 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD Review
MotoBRAP says:
Change in suspension from previous models really lets the car hug roads even better. Leather and suede interior makes it feel like a more expensive car. Paddle shifters in the automatic are about as true as you can get; very little delay, doesnt baby you too much like some other paddle shifting automatics.

"Rated this to be a more family friendly car than the BRZ simply because the price tag. The interior dash is plastic, so easier upkeep than the leather in the BRZ."

2017 Subaru BRZ Limited RWD Review
Keith says:
This car has a nice short throw. It is definitely a car for some one who is just learning stick. The car has decent power for everyday driving but this car excels at being driven hard threw curvy back roads. You can push this car and not worry about speeding tickets. I can definitely say in this car you will be smiling every time you drive.

"The front seats in the brz are low and in the perfect driving position. Makes you feel like your in the cockpit of a race car. "
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Subaru WRX Premium better.
"The wrx is a car with many roles. It is a family sedan when you need it to be. It has the power and agility to be taken to the track. This is just an all around comfortable car that fits what you need when you need it."
