Hi! I'm Cole. I just purchased my second 5th gen. My first was a 2017 with a CVT. I had a lot of problems with my tranny. It would jerk and stutter. The dealer said it was learning my driving style but 30k miles later and the problems persisted. I traded out for another car and now I'm back to my Impreza but in a manual! I'm in love with this car. I think it's great. I can't wait to read the forums and ask the same question everyone else has! Weeeeeee!
