Long Term: 2013 Subaru BRZ Long-Term Update 6

As a budget sports car, the BRZ can be a little uncompromising sometimes. Around the uneven freeways and potholed roads of Los Angeles, daily commuting in the little Subaru requires a willingness to be jostled around. The price paid for little body roll and that glued-to-the-asphalt feel on Southern California’s best back roads is a pretty firm ride around town. Living with the car week to week and month to month, I’ve gotten used to the way it rides and even put it out of mind. But getting back into the BRZ after a few days spent in a more supple sedan or SUV can be a little eye-opening. For those looking for a true sports car, that shouldn’t be a deal breaker at all — it wouldn’t be for me.
