Yakima currently makes a roof rack for the 2017 Sport with fixed point mounts. My dealer said Subaru should be releasing a rack this year for it as well (probably Thule?). I was going to wait until that came out to compare prices and features.they couldn't get me a roof rack either. Guess i'll have to wait until someone comes out with aftermarket goodies for them since there is pretty much nothing as of yet.
That's why I like to think the new Civic Hatch was a response to the Impreza, it's one of the last pieces of the puzzle that Honda needed for its line up. Just look at how many sold.Yah, the hill assist is not bad. Although more then once I have burnt the clutch due to the instinct of giving more gas when the car doesn't move forward.
I was able to turn it off but the permanent light on the dash bothered me more then the hill assist.
I have owned 4 manual hondas and all the transmissions were amazing.
1993 prelude SRV,
1999 Civic hatchback (with b18c type r)
2008 civic si (modded)
2009 civic si (modded)
I would love it if someone found a remedy for the delay as well.
When I gas it from 1st to 2nd; I also feel the delay or bogging.
From what I have read the CVT is a bit faster. BUT car magazines are against any type of auto transmissions and mention how they take the fun out of driving in just about every article you read. Thus the car reading public is being brainwashed. Is driving a stick and clutch more fun? In my opinion it is. Is an auto easier? Yup. Are many new auto tranny cars faster than a human shifting? YESCan someone say the acceleration times of the 5spd manual vs the CVT? All the reviewers out there talk about the CVT times.
I'm guessing the CVT might be possibly quicker from, say, 0-60mph, but was hoping someone could verify that? I've been a manual guy all my life and can't decide on which tranny to get in the new Impreza..
Also, has anyone noticed any rev hang issues? i.e. you're accelerating in a hurry and shift from 1st to 2nd, and it's a balky shift, because the engine stays at a high RPM for a second or so before dropping, even though you've let go of the throttle. I've read on the internet that this is programmed as such on purpose, to help with emissions. Has anyone got this computer function changed, maybe at the dealer?
