My 10 Series is bone stock and at 4.5 years old/25k miles the only issues are:


Leak from cam plate cover (very easy DIY a couple of years ago)
This month OEM Panasonic battery is beginning to wear down


This car comparable to my 45k mi '08 tC (replaced hatchback garnish under recall then the OEM battery in 2016) and 37k '06 Civic Si (replaced windshield cowl under warranty and repainted hood under recall).


I'm still very happy with this purchase, Japanese quality is still something you can count on. Not so sure about Korean, my '02 Elantra GT started having ignition issues after 2 years and again 2 years later).


Now if there was another cool (affordable) Japanese coupe worth purchasing besides the Miata RF.

My 26 year old son bought his 13 FR-S in June of 2013. So he is now at 4.5 years and has never had one single problem with the car. The only time it has been back to the dealer was for the two free oil changes that he got when buying it.

I like to remind him that I was the one that convinced him to test drive the car. He bought the car on the spot. He still loves it just as much as he did after that first drive.

Damn you are a such a nice dad that I got dust in my eyes.


It's funny how parents shape us without us knowing.

I'll just contribute because my car is EXACTLY on this time-frame! Pretty sure this post will by buried by other posts,

but I've had my Raven FRS since Dec of 2012! Never had a problem with the car ever since! Been driving this car as a daily since 2012!

contemplated many times to sell the car for a Lexus IS350, but in the end, I can't seem to let this car go!

I absolutely love this car and the whole concept (boxer/rwd) of the car!

Everyone always say that this car does not have enough power or it needs a turbo or its too slow; but I still honestly feel that all these people simply do not understand the philosophy of this car. They need to look elsewhere if that's the case


The only problem I have with the car is my panels are slowly misaligning such as my fender and the hood. And people keep opening doors to hit my car.

k thanks bye

Is your fender problem this one by any chance? If so, it's a really quick and easy fix.
Maybe you meant the gap between hood and the fender. If so, mine isn't perfectly aligned either. Not sure if it was like that from the factory or because of age.

Yeah it's the gap between hood and fender, but the alignment is like this
