Developed in conjunction with Subaru, the Scion FR-S has done wonders in reinvigorating the brand. It is arguably the most attractive offering Toyota’s spin off company has in its lineup and people are buying them in droves. What is so great about it? A rear-wheel drive sports car with sleek lines for under $26k has a lot to do with the demand.
Toyota has informed their dealers that the new Scion FR-S sports coupe has a couple of quality issues:
- Some new FR-S coupes have exhibited moisture build-up in the rear tail light housings, indicating the units aren’t being sealed properly by the supplier and/or being damaged during assembly.
- Some new FR-S coupes have body panels that are not fitting flush at the gaps – Toyota reports that some panels are sitting as a quarter of inch over or under flush.
Toyota has issued these quality issue announcements as innocuous sounding “tech tips,” intended to help dealers get ahead of these issues before consumers have a chance to sound the alarm bells.
Scion has developed a new sports car, the Scion FR-S. This super-charged drift-ready sports car is modeled after other successful sports car and is turning a lot of heads.
