Good share. Critical elements below

The GT86's reliability issues include a slow engagement of gears from cold due to triple-cone synchromesh gearing, the 86 just requires a gentle warm-up before thrashing through the gears.
Fit and finish has also been a concern with lights misting up due to improper sealing and the odd rattle coming from the inside.
Valve springs on very early models can sometimes fracture and cause non-starting issues but this was a recall issue and these models should have all had replacements fitted by now.
Rust issues are the final concern but this seems to be limited to the quarterlight pillar area so potential buyers should just give this part of the bodywork a thorough check.
