This system has worked pretty effectively on the FA20 since the 2013 model year. Aside from "noise" from the DI fuel pump, it has been fairly trouble free. Further, Toyota is using it on some of...

I like the Cb edition. It gives the 86 more of the retro XK-E coupe look. Since I have the 2020 Hakone Edition, it would be particularly nice. But, I would be concerned that it is more than a...

Yes, the 2020 86 feels more composed at the expense of perhaps not quite as crisp turnin as the 2015 FR-S. I do NOT drive at track speeds, so I cannot compare either car at the limit. Also, my...

2015 FR-S vs. 2020 Hakone Edition 86

Miles to empty on a new 2020 Hakone 86

Sounds exactly correct. On my 2015 FR-S, when the "Feed Me" light came on, I could always count on putting in 10.5 gallons. Thus that means there is still 2.5 gallons to go. I don't yet know if my...

Car and Driver 2020 Toyota 86 review

Yup, spot on. I think the review was perfect.

This is why I sold my 2015 at 70k miles and bought a new Hakone. I prefer the stock exhaust and suspension/brakes as it came as I like to use mine a...

I HATE (really do) the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-2's. Had them on a 2011 Camry, 2012 Yaris SE, and the 2015 FR-S. In all cases, they were noisy, thumped over anything, didn't give particularly good...
