I might as well do that, will keep you posted.
As for car shuddering, I was anticipating it while driving yesterday and I think I barely noticed it. Could it be just me getting used to it or jerking motion just disappeared?
Sorry to res such an old thread, but I'm curious what the verdict was on the warranty and installing a rear hitch for a bike rack. I'm wanting to do this myself, but was worried about my warranty.
Fwiw, I also experience the jerkiness/downshifting feeling when driving slowly. This is my first car with a CVT, so I sort of thought they were all like this. I test drove 4 different 2019 Imprezas and 3 different 2019 Crosstreks and they all had differing levels of "drag" when coasting/driving at low speeds. They were just really inconsistent. The Impreza I bought had the least engine brake feel to it, but it's definitely still there. Did you get any fix for this at the dealership on yours? Or now that you've owned the car longer, has it gone away? (Mine is just shy of 3k miles, so quite new.)
