This is my only complaint. I was really surprised by how terrible the sound system is. Wow. I am currently concocting a playlist of songs that will work with the system without adjustments. I am getting to know my music collection quite well. 70s, 80s and anything after has to have little to no base.

I hate how easily the hard plastic on the interior scratches.

I find the bass doesn't sound that bad; its the fact that it rattles the crap out of the door panels, especially the passenger side, that i am having to make quite a few playlist adjustments. I'm hoping taking it in for dynamat will solve the problem.

Yes. This is very true. I hear the passenger side rattle and I can't figure out if it's the door rattling or the speaker. I think once the playlist adjustments are made it will be ok. However, I would like stuff just not to rattle when playing music. What's fascinating, it that when you think a song may work you play it and nope! No dice!

Since about 2 weeks ago, my clutch pedal assembly squeaks on the last 2-3 inches of travel and feels weird. It's literally the most annoying thing...

you're kidding right?

i just wish the headunit in the BRZ had physical buttons, this touch screen gets annoying, or atleast steering wheel controls.

The poor stereo and head unit quality. Head unit is too jumbled up and not at all intuitive.

Also, the speakers are not very good and not what I'd expect out of a $26500 car.

My $20k mazdaspeed 3 and civic SIs have had excellent factory sound systems in comparison.

Arm rest wise-- this car is a daily driver for me and not some track car or weekend cruiser. I spend 2 hours+ depending on traffic sitting in my car each day. Need the arm rest. I bought one aftermarket and love it! Very versatile.

Other than the damn crickets and occasional rattles I really enjoy the car.
