YO WTF! image Dudes are hitting 300 on the ODO, and having rattles, chirping, tail lights and HID's breaking every week.

This is not the Toyota i know... I said id continue to buy Lexus/Toyota till i die, but after seeing the BRZ/FRS problems. image

31k for the BRZ...

[video - click to view]

^ Everyone has this problem gets louder with more miles. Starts at 300.

Taking peoples brand new cars for a month, unacceptable. Id understand if it were 1 or 2 people, but dozens of reports... And the car was shipped limited numbers this year.
Bottom line stay away from these cars... Maybe next year. Ending the pursuit.

What happened the Toyota quality... You buy it, you drive it, change the oil, eventually the belt. And never have problems. After 2008 quality been getting worse.

True, But their reliability is still one of the best. Maybe they just rushed the release.

Im sure a lot of those owners beat on their car before letting it break in too, you see mad youtube vids of FR-S's burnouts and donuts, drifts etc and i doubt any of them have over 10k miles.

Its a poorly built car to begin with tho

Everybody knows its Nissan>>>

I'm sure a lot of these cases are just that, but unless you personally had a hand in building them, how would you know?

By the winter time you will see used BRZ/FRS popping up for cheap.

Did you know Nissan was at Hyundai level back in the day??? Worst manufacturing company next to hyundai / kia. If there was a patent in automotive world germans would sue japanese.

First and foremost, Hyundai and Kia are Korean. And secondly the Nissan/Datsun brand has always been on a level of Toyota and Honda. Hyundai and Kia are the companies trying to emulate the Japanese brands. Even when Nissan was on the verge of bankruptcy in the mid 90s, they dropped the Maxima and won car of the year. You have engines like the VG V6 that started production in 1984 and was used until 2000. The VQ engine started production in like 1995 and is still being used to this day. Thats 2 Wards top 10 best engines right there thats been in production for almost 20 years each with only slight changes throughout the years. Nissan been in the game since the 1920s man

The only engines on the same level of Nissans V6s is Hondas 4 cylinders

And comparing German to Japanese is like apples to oranges

The fact that 300 owners on a poll complained they they that loud chirping from their engine is concerning...

They made a limited amount this year for the US, the car just came out, and not many people have it yet. Ive seen it on the road once... And it was for the first time this week.

Bottom line is hundreds of people are having issues with CEL, and the car shutting off, jerking, RMP going crazy... They need to just do a recall, shiit is ridiculous. Dudes taking their cars in broken as fuk, and being told come back 3-4 weeks. No car under 1k mi should be having serious engine trouble. The way it looks on the forums EVERYONE has a bad part, or issue with build quality.

Toyota you have made me sad. Cuz the FR-S/BRZ looks sik as fuk on the road. I seen a white dude and a girl rolling, dude looked old as fuk driving. I thought it was a test drive, but car was registered, and the n*gga had on a wifebeater.

Yeah I seen an asian dude drivin a maroon FR-S the other day, thought he was the sh*t too. I just laugh because the cars really arent all they're cut up to be.

The problem is they rushed the production to meet the demands of the fanboys, but at the same time they didnt expect the problems to pop up so rapidly/not having replacement parts, so now theres a waiting list to get your car repaired. And knowing Toyota build quality as of late, this was bound to happen

But you're right cars with less than 1k miles on then having issues is not a good look at all

I believe these types of issues are very common on first generation vehicles. You guys act like it should be perfect and nothing should happen like 0 nada. Once they figure everything out slowly they'll have a perfect subaru by 5-6th generation.

You shouldnt have engine trouble from a brand new car , sure every car has issues but the stuff I read after being on their forums for a few hours reading is crazy.

Yeah it bad, problems are off the charts bad. Gearbox, engine, build quality all no good. I passed by the dealer 2 days ago here in NYC. Car still has major major issues and the 2 they still have sitting there might mean sumtin. It's been there for a month.

Dealers stopped marking up too... The prices are lower. At msrp.
