2013 Subaru BRZ: Taillight Condensation Repair
January 17, 2013
Yesterday we drove our 2013 Subaru BRZ to South Coast Subaru to follow up on the taillight condensation issue we experienced. This turned out to be a quick fix. It also changed my opinion of this dealer for the better.
I left South Coast Subaru neither impressed nor disappointed following routine maintenance at 7,500 miles. But after this visit I change my mind. I'd recommend this dealer for service. These guys went the extra mile.
I needed pictures for our starving readers. So without saying as much, I asked permission to take some photos of the repair process. With insurance guidelines and whatnot, such a request is sometimes frowned upon. But our advisor and the mechanic, both David, took time to walk me back to the garage to observe. I'd like to think they would do the same for any interested customer. And I think that is pretty cool.
The repair itself took about an hour. I arrived at 7:15 for my appointment and the car was pulled around back shortly thereafter. The TSB called for removal and replacement of the entire taillight housing and seal behind it. Hopefully this solves the problem.
