To be fair Subaru probably has a fair amount of engine failure replacements built into their business model by now, Replacing engines under warranty has kinda been their thing for around 16 years now...

Toyota not so much.

Probably because of the way Toyota is handling the issue instead of performing warranty work.

Yeah Toyota isn't likely accustomed to having several vehicles in the shop waiting on new engines like Subaru dealerships in the day where multiple STI's would be waiting on new engines.

Not to defend the Subaru engine thatís in there but itís not like itís the first year of the BRZ/86 vehicle. Seems like prior generations have been fairly reliable.

That said, I still think Toyota should have just slapped the BMW 4 cylinder turbo with 6 speed in there and kept the I6 turbo in the Supra.

Nope, Toyota is accustomed to having several vehicles waiting on new frames though, my local dealer was getting 10 frames dropped off every month....for many, many months

Because it is a Toyota dealer and Subaru people know the hell they are getting themselves into.

That would have been one heck of a car. I would buy that for sure.

I detest social media as much as Disney but for stuff like this, and the negative attention it brings, worth it even though I will never participate. I guess if I ever get strong armed by Gulf States Toyota, I will have to create accounts.

I wonder how that will work for the dude that bought a used engine and had it put in by a Subaru dealer. Will they reimburse him for the total cost?

This social media stuff is a double edge sword. Social media got Toyota to act right and cover the cost of the repair, but it also got the owner of the car in trouble because Toyota dug out that picture showing the car cornering "hard" on an AX course...

Except for the now infamous valve springs recall of 2019...
So, people were going in to get valve springs replaced as they could potentially break.
Soon after the recall was performed, quite a few engines experienced rod knock... Maybe another case of too much RTV? Who knows.

Very true. But the last thing Iíd do is post photos online, of anything. So it would just be for a stealer or mfr refusing to honor warranty for some bs reasoning they supply.

But to your point, yes, itís why I donít f with any of that garbage sans watching stuff on you boob. Utter waste of time and a plague on society it is.

Yep. An inline 4 would be far more tunable than any NA Subaru engine.

Not as bad as some have made it out to be. I've seen way worse.

I think the main concern is lack of QC in assembly.

If you properly design a robust assembly process around a robust mechanical design you only need QA. When you go to QC you are in damage control mode. Sometimes it is easier said then done......

Doesnít Toyota advertise the vehicle as track capable and include a 1 year SCCA membership? If they do, youíre blatantly advertising a product as designed for and capable of doing something. Pretty sure a solid lawyer could class action that as ďfalse advertisingĒ and have a nice paycheck coming their way.

meanwhile, all the owners would receive a second year of SCCA membership.
