2012 Impreza Sport


My 2 cents:

Overall I hate CVTs, at least the way Subaru tunes them. I've owned a 2012 Impreza, 2016 Legacy and test driven the newest Crosstrek Sport with the CVT. I would go as far as to say that I'll never buy another CVT Subaru ever again.

That being said, I didn't mind the way the CVT functioned on my '12 Impreza, where it acted like a true CVT without the fake gear shifting. The tune on my 12 was garbage, it was under powered, but it had potential.

I'm now at the point with my Legacy where I'm having issues with either the torque converter or CVT, and I have to sell it before the extended warranty expires at 100k.
