Hows your FRS/BRZ holding up?

Hey guys how is your car holding up and how many miles? I bought my '15 FRS new 4 yrs ago this month and have 28,xxx on the clock, only major issue i had was a cam sensor went bad, but it didn't give any driveability issues, could've been a nuisance CEL, i used to have the HPFP Chirping constantly but now its pretty rare, guess the seals have worn enough, also some flywheel rattle when i'm coasting down a hill in only 1st 2nd or 3rd, but its a lightweight flywheel and the car has no insulation. All these other issues people have reported i have none of those, car is great and i love it and people always try to race me and have to always show off if they see me. So how about all of you guys?

Bought mine new March 2013, have about 45k miles on it. It runs fine, only major thing that bothers me is:

Window seal rolled up because of window indexing. So it screwed up my tint.

Bumper sag.

Bought mine new in 2013. It now has 25,000 trouble free miles.

No CELs, no squeaks, no leaky tail lights, no crickets (that I can hear), no torque dip (that I notice), no leaks.

Never been back to the dealer (except for first three free oil changes).

Never been in a shop (except for oil changes and swapping to an aftermarket muffler - YES, I'm lazy).

17 86, 26000 miles in. Battery was done about a week ago and had to be replaced under warranty. Other than that, nothing.

My son has a 2013 FR-S that he bought on June 28th 2013. It currently has 32,000 miles on it. He replaced the all season tires (no Primacy) it came with in December last year. Besides that he has had zero issues. The car has been perfect so far.

And I don't suppose having a size 18 shoe and a 150 pound leg banging on it had anything to do with clutch stopper wearing out -

Up until having the "R word" done, my 2013 FRS was 71,000 miles of trouble-free driving fun. Bought good snow tires and steel wheels for winter, a new battery a few months ago, and a new set of summer tires at about 55K miles. No major issues; only minor ones were a TSB done on windows to avoid freezing shut (didn't work, but where I live I doubt anything would), the driver's window still sort of rolls up the rubber seal at the top/front, and a TSB done for oscillating idle. Routine maintenance all done as suggested or before.


Here's hoping the new engine will return the vehicle to it's pre "R word" reliability and fun status.

2015 BRZ Manual w/ some mods (Headers, Tune, Gearing (4.56), Brakes, Tires, Fluids). 24K and pretty good overall. 2 Service issues (dead battery and crickets), both resolved. Still amazed by how often I get comments on the car.

50k miles in on a manual 2014 FR-S, nothing to report. I have did preventative maintenance like Mogul trans oil, engine oil, performance tires and air filter re-oil. I did do a brake upgrade by replacing stock with Ferodo brake pads, racing dot 4 fluid and brake lines with steel. Though none of the brake stuff was "needed" for and breakdown. Did them as I track it once in a blue moon.

Oh, I put in replacement factory orange turn signal light bulbs as someone put in cheap LED's that broke.

Sold my 2013 (bought May 2012) due to engine knock. More likely user error than the vehicle. Otherwise it served me well with plenty of track use.

That has nothing to do with it.
