Not really, they actually like it quite a bit. They just don't like the reliability of it. Which is quite a bit different from saying it's a POS.

Check out their videos of the FR-S.

All prices in this gallery are Kelley Blue Book's "Fair Purchase Price" for a base model without options. This price, which is calculated based on what buyers actually pay, is usually lower than the sticker price.

I do think it's pretty amazing that our cars are priced around $25k, considering the driving experience that they offer.

Still can not beat the WRX. If it was to have 50 more HP, then it would beat about just everything

No WRX in that list, little Einstein.

Fun fact of the day: In the true North strong and free, a WRX base price is $32,500, and a BRZ is $27,200.

I understand this fact is not so fun.. you 'Muricans are lucky to get the Rexes at $25-26K..

It's not the fastest but it does so much right where it counts, it is a no brainer if you want a "cheap" sports car but not looking for a mustang. That's my opinion anyway.
