That's true, I don't have a CVT, and have never driven one.
It sounds like you and VWGTI (and 79, and others) are very unhappy with your purchases. I'm sorry the Impreza didn't work out for you guys. I know what it's like to be unhappy with a major purchase that you had high hopes for.
I suggest selling your cars sooner rather than later, to avoid additional depreciation. That's what I did with my VW TDI that I didn't trust, and it worked out well. I sold it myself rather than trading it in (it's easier than you might think), which allowed me to keep $5500 that I would have lost had I traded it into the Subaru dealership. I used Craigslist, which was a free ad.
