    That pretty much describes Subaru here, too, so I'm not sure what is different. The 1st gen Impreza was the last two wheel drive Subaru sold in America. Since Y2K (if not slightly before - I think maybe '98) Subaru has been exclusively AWD.

    Subaru US seemed to embrace the car though, not sure why subaru aus got so weird about it but there was months and looking at their feet and going umm every time someone asked them if they were going to sell it. Most people got jack of it in the end and just bought the Toyota.

    I think the real Tesla was screwed over in NY, not NJ. Maybe Musk should rename the company to Edison anyway? Whatever, I do hope this modern day Tesla will eventually make it!

    Anyway, back to the BRZ in Australia..., so does that mean you have to take it to a Toyota dealer to have it serviced? I kinda doubt that. Most likely it's probably like what DN said that Subaru just don't have that many cars for all the dealers?

    Cars go to Subaru for servicing but in terms of supply Subaru were a bit better than Toyota, they got less cars but they've also got a much smaller network. And while the cars are ordered online they are still delivered through the dealer network.

    In effect Subaru aren't actively selling the BRZ in Australia, they are making it available for sale but not actually selling it.

    Another issue was that the car's fuse blew on numerous occasions. Each time, our engineers explored all possible explanations and were never able to find anything wrong with the car. Still, just to be sure, we replaced several parts that could have been related to the alleged problem – all at no expense to the customer. When the fuse kept blowing despite the new parts, and faced with no diagnosis showing anything wrong with the car, the engineers were moved to consider the possibility that the fuse had been tampered with. After investigating, they determined that the car's front trunk had been opened immediately before the fuse failure on each of these occasions. (The fuse is accessed through the front trunk.) Ultimately, Tesla service applied non-tamper tape to the fuse switch. From that point on, the fuse performed flawlessly.
    Haha, wow.
    Whoomah!
