The worst part about my 2008 LL Bean is the 4EAT. It is slow to react to aggressive on and off throttle around town. I can catch it between gears and cause harsh jerks. My 5MT Scion is a joy to drive in such situations.
I had heard bad things about a CVT. Last weekend I had a chance to drive a 2008 Nissan Centris with CVT. I drove it aggressively at low speed around town, doing what would have caused distress to my Subaru 4EAT.
I can say that the Nissan CVT was great. Although I regret that I cannot buy a leather Forester with 5MT, a leather CVT will not be so bad.

How did you get a 4EAT on the Bean? The six has a 5EAT.

This is a Forester forum. The Forester LL Bean is a four, with a 4EAT.
