Ford hates it even more than we do. They've offered a $30 million settlement for that abortion of a transmission for which they have NEVER had any fix for. The unit is actually quite interesting if you look into it. From the mechanical parts to the electronic controllers, there are multiple points that regularly fail resulting in the car shutting down. Great thing to happen when passing that semi on the highway.

For CVT lovers, come take my 13 Crosstrek limited for a romp. Then you'll understand why people hate CVTs. My wife's 17 Legacy CVT is absolutely fine. Yes, of course I've driven both cars. My newest Subaru is a 19 Crosstrek premium 6MT.
