Most fun car you can drive!


No issues.

General Comments:

Fun to drive! Handles extremely well due to its weight distribution and low center of gravity. Very controllable car, even when drifting.

The seats hug you very well, so larger people may find them uncomfortable. The back seat is tiny, but it's a sports car! The trunk is also somewhat small, but the entire car is. The back seat folds flat to accommodate larger objects.

The gas mileage is better than advertised. I'm getting 37 MPG with mixed driving.

The car has enough power, but would be better with more. Turbo and supercharger kits are everywhere. Aftermarket performance parts are in abundance for the FR-S/86/BRZ.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
