Toyota GT 86

In the latest series of car faults, its now Toyota GT 86 and Subaru BRZ, the twin cars powered by the same engine. Both of the models are hardly out and the buyers have reported problems of stalling. Toyota claims that it is a fault with the ECU, which stores the data about driving for the first 100kms to ensure a better and personalised driving experience. In other words, for the first 100kms of the car has been bought, it learns and adjusts according to the driver’s style.  The Toyota GT86 engine has been built By Subaru.

If the car has less than 100kms on the clock, the ECU can be rewritten, otherwise it has to be replaced. According to Toyota,” It does involve the variable valve timing, but it does not involve a mechanical repair,” Lyons said. He said the rough idle is the result of the ECU’s attempting to work around its detection of the anomaly, rather than what is triggering the fault code. The reflash “broadens the tolerance of detection [. . .] This is not a mileage-dependent condition. No replacement of the ECU is needed at any mileage to rectify the issue. The ECU re-flash is the fix. There is not a defect concerning the ECU” But the owners disagree with the manufacturer and insist it’s the VVt that is creating problems not the ECU.
