FR-S vs Yaris/Tercel, yes you read right

Well this is a forum. In the 80’s many a family bought a Camry or and drove it for 300k+ miles minimal maintenance costs, made a reputation for building a that literally outlasted the

Then the 90’s EG civic and Honda upped the ante, proof reliability (as long as you the timing belt) plus a fun to double wishbone suspension on all for for $11k. It was such a good car its popularity and tuner scene folks of this generation to how nice these were for the

Then when Honda the unique suspension it didn’t much sense to buy a civic, the Tercel/Yaris was the car to get if you wanted decent gas and a half a million trouble-free Problem is they are not fun to drive, handling is down right for someone coming from a or EG Civic.

If it weren’t for the exchange rates and things going on with banks the FR-S would come in under $20k, so take the price out of the equation for discussion and consider this is a car a $400 monthly bill for which is still budget you look back 3 decades and inflation.

The FR-S is similiar to an in a lot of ways, affordable, fun to drive excellent handling, not a powerhouse, incredible gas milage (again over the last 3 decades.)

But the big question I may have been for granted is long term

1. Direct Injection. I am not necessarily of direct injection, its been in diesels for decades. But the compression + a bad tank of gas (it happens) could serious damage depending on the of the knock sensor/timing retard.

2. Engine — I have no the track record of these as subarus are sent to the crusher the complicated exspensive all wheel components before he engine

3. Gearbox/clutch, being RWD is a big advantage much easier to replace a bearing with a RWD car, are less hassel than CV

4. LSD- its a torsen.

5. Traction if you disable it can it fail?

6. Cylinder head — a possible trouble spot, we high compression, unique design and Subaru has a spotty with premature cylinder /gasket leaks

I’ve waiting for an FR-S since came out, seems gets lower and lower. You can’t buy one where I live. To me could be a sign of lack of by Toyota, I am sure they want a repeat of the MR2 Spyder was a serious tragedy as far as reliability.
