2013 Subaru BRZ

A Subaru without all-wheel drive seems like sacrilege, but considering the kind of holy fun offered up by the 2013 BRZ we're willing to overlook its rear-drive sin. While it's a technical twin of the Scion FR-S, the BRZ adds a bit of luxury to the performance equation by offering a more upscale interior.

About Subaru BRZ

The 2015 Subaru BRZ is the only Subaru you can buy that isn't all-wheel drive. This rear-drive sports car is for purists who want something they can drive every day, but also take to their favorite mountain roads, or even to a weekend race event, without changing a thing. The BRZ delivers in a way few cars in this price range can. The precision steering, excellent chassis and suspension, and sheer playfulness remind drivers of early Mazda RX-7s or Datsun 280Zs, but with all the modern safety, technology, and traction-control enhancements you can find on a 21st-century car. While not the most powerful car out there, what it lacks in punch, it makes up for with poise.

Pros: "Great Mileage, Great Cargo Space, Great Traction"

Cons: "Cup holders, limited leg room in back seat"

"I hope to drive this vehicle for at least another 100,000 miles. Always starts, even in the coldest of Duluth, Minnesota winters. Surefooted, spunky, and always eager to have more *stuff* shoved in the back, this vehicle was the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. Previous vehicles Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer and Mazda B2200 don't hold a candle to the Subaru Forester. True, not too many creature comforts, but from a reliability and economic standpoint this vehicle rocks. Truly, its humble red and grey exterior hid the passion of a dragon. Great gas mileage, I was averaging 29/30 on the highway. My mechanic insisted on being vigilant with the oil changes, the small oil lines can clog easily and reduce life. I dutifully changed the oil every 3000 miles. Other than an abysmal lack of cup holders, this homely machine is fantastic. Only repairs, getting the heat shields tightened, about a $12 repair. From the mountains of New Mexico to the Canadian wilderness, this vehicle handles it all."

Pros: "Handling in snow/ice conditions & Hauling capacity"

Cons: "Uncomfortable, not quick to switch gears & GO"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"This car was clearly not designed with 250+lb people like my spouse in mind. Not as comfortable or wide as my old Pontiac Grand AM or Ford Taurus and does not have the immediate "get up and go" for good passing on hills. The Tranny seems to get "confused" as to what gear it should be switching into going up and down hills and it has had a slight oil leak for as long as I've owned it that makes it smell hot at times but has otherwise not been a major problem and has not gotten any worse over the past 3 years. Personally I preferred the size, handling, and comfort of the "92 "dwarf" AWD Minivan known as the Eagle Summit I purchased a few months ago but had to get rid of due to it's mechanical issues.(people act "shocked" and talk like there's NO COMPARISSON when I say that but I beg to differ) The Forester has better performance and reliability reviews but it would be nice if it was as comfortable to drive as the Summit Which IS very comparable in size and function with the exception of it's mechanical issues. Handles GREAT in snow and Ice even without adding chains or studs. I also Like that the seats fold down for hauling and it comes with a standard roof rack for carrying even more."

"This is my second Forrester, I loved the 98 and would have kept it except for the car accident which totaled the car. The owner of the repair shop told me that if I had been in another car I may have been very badly injured or worse. I think the 98 had a better design"
