Still, that's a solid amount. Just saw your thread comparing the 13-16 and 17 as well. Probably will end up with a '17 or an '18 if the pricing makes sense. I intend to occasionally street drive it...

My question was mainly whether or not certain common issues were addressed with the updates. I'd pay a premium to deal with less issues. I've been around so many FRS/BRZs and see CELs for random crap...

Essentially my thinking. I know of several who had issues, another friend of mine also had a replaced short block in his '13 BRZ. The cam parts are all different in the 2017 so hopefully no more...

I had seen that before when I had my 2015. Is it really strong enough to pull ~500lbs worth of trailer, tires, and tools?

2017+ Reliability Improvements?

Did Subaru/Toyota do any changes to the 2017+ engines for reliability? Ignition coils, cam gears, oil control valves, etc? Or is it still the same and one should expect the same recurring issues?
