2013 Subaru BRZ: Detent-less Climate Control Knobs

April 1, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

In truth the 2013 Subaru BRZ's climate control knobs aren't completely detent-less. But they're darn close.

And apparently I'm a texture and detent kinda guy. So it bugs me when I try to turn the Subie's central fan speed knob up just one click, and it instead goes up two or three because there's almost no resistance.

Not a huge deal, mind you. But it's something that could be done better.
