Same experience for me. The manual just didn’t feel up for the task and the ergonomics of the seats, armrest and stick felt off. Went w the CVT, it provides a smooth(er) ride.Man I am usually a die hard stick guy, but I think the CVT just feels lighter on its feet with the Crosstrek series. I dont know if the gearing is off on the manual or what but the CVT feels like it accellerates adequately and the stick does not, to me anyway. FA20 +stick in a crosstrek would be AWESOME. Come on Subaru, lets do it already!
