2013 Subaru BRZ: Finding the Fluids

July 1, 2013

2013 Subaru BRZ

Like our Subaru Impreza, the BRZ offers easy-to-find fluid fill points in the engine bay. The coolant overflow, washer fluid, dipstick, oil-fill port and both the clutch and brake fluids (both brake fluid) are capped with yellow lids.

And though the oil filter isn't yellow, it is upright in the engine bay and positioned right next to the oil-fill port, also like our Impreza. Subaru makes it easy, all right.

Off topic of this engine bay: OK it was bad enough that this comment system doesn't allow paragraphs. Then it was even worse when the website redesign left the Inside Line-replacing "What's Hot" in the old format and buried deep in an obscure menu. And around the same time the comment system started double posting all comments. And now the sign-in window that pops up is almost too small to use. What is going on here?

    @stovt001 What do you think is going on? It's the blog portion of Edmunds beginning to die on the vine like the Ford Ranger and Crown Victoria. Sooner or later they will close outright this part of the site and tell the dedicated commentators like you and
