Had my BRZ since June 15th, and haven't had any issues. BUT, and perhaps this is telling - I only have 2400 miles on it. Since the weather turned crappy, I find myself driving my truck instead. For really ****ty weather, even just rain, the BRZ is certainly OK but it's not ideal. Can't wait for spring when the weather gets a bit nicer; until then, I'll stick to dryer days for the BRZ. This reality has me wishing for the days of my WRX with AWD - I felt invincible in that car, like I could go fast in any condition and feel confident. My next car will definitely be a WRX or STI hatchback.
One thing I will say - really really wish the BRZ had steering wheel controls. I was anti before I had the car, but now that I do I hate having just the touchscreen to use for flipping through songs or stations. It's not only annoying but kind of dangerous - more so than other cars I've owned. The WRX (my 2002) didn't have steering wheel controls and it was no big deal, but with this touchscreen it sucks not having them.
