paddle shift subaru forester Q&A Review

If you want to buy a first car for your teenager and you want a Subaru, which vehicle would be a good choice?

I would certainly get used. It’s going to get dinged up, and your insurance will be cheaper. I would choose a Crosstrek. It’s a cute, fun car, but it’s not too high center of gravity. I didn’t like the paddle shift CVT, but your kid probably will; I needed to tow and haul a lot of junk, so I got a manual transmission Forester.

Can I get better gas mileage in my Subaru Forester XT by using the paddle shifter instead of using standard automatic?

It depends. The automatic gearbox should be pretty good at driving economically but if you want to do better youll have to change your style of driving a little. You can shift up early for example and that will save loads of fuel. Also try to reduce braking because thats just a waste of momentum that youve created. A good trick is to hit the brakes early(?!) and slow down in situations like coming to a red light or nearing a traffic jam so you have more time before you get there and the chances of the light going green or the cars moving is much higher and you wont have to stop.

Are there car companies still making full manual transmission vehicles, and why?

In terms of the sales and consumer choice, automatic transmission is way way ahead of manual transmission cars and in fact, many auto makers including Subaru are choosing to stop making manual transmission cars for North American market. However, when it comes to which one is better, I have driven manual transmission cars in India, the UK, Europe, and Automatic transmission cars in Canada and the U.S. I could put some thoughts into this. Without going into the details about the types of Automatic transmissions, going by the number of physical movements involved in engaging with the vehicle, driving automatic transmission vehicle is easier and preferable in most cases but not all. While driving through North American highways during summer time I prefer Automatic transmission. All I need to do is set the speed in cruise control and apply brakes when needed. In fact, the adaptive cruise control in my Subaru Forester even maintains the speed and distance for me based on the speed of the vehicle in front of me. All I need to make sure is I buy extra large coffee so I don’t fall asleep. Here’s the problem, not all time is summer time and not all days are trouble free. Not at least in the part of the world I currently live. And here is where I find Automatic is more difficult: Imagine you find the brakes don’t work and you are on high speed. (,Doesn’t happen a lot but what if it does???,) With the automatic transmission, you are at the mercy of road friction. This means you need to take your foot off the gas pedal ( DO NOT PUT THE VEHICLE ON NEUTRAL) and wait until the car comes to a stop. Paddle shifters may help to reduce the gear ratio but not a lot because the car’s computer is smart to only let you reduce gear ratio to a certain extent based on the speed you are traveling in. With Manual transmission, you can manually move to lower gears which reduces the speed of the vehicle very quickly to within the safe limit when banging into something has less impact; the gearbox may take a blow and may need some repairs but it is still better than getting involved in a high speed crash. Imagine you are driving in snow and ice, which happens quite a lot. With the automatic transmission, you need to use your one foot to engage brake pedal and gas pedal. You can either give power to engine or apply brakes at once and cannot do both simultaneously. With the manual transmission, you could use the left leg on the clutch pedal to engage the engine and right leg to apply brakes. If you are wondering why would someone need to do both at the same time, well, I can’t go into the physics of it but my experience says it’s super useful when the road surface is slippery as it creates more friction between the tires and the slippery surface. Having said all of this, having the right vehicle with the right winter tires during winter time is the best, regardless of the transmission system. Now, this is psychological in nature. With Automatic transmission, the vehicle decides the gear I need to be in and the amount of power that’s going from the engine. Few people prefer this because ultimately a car is used to go from A to B, so let the car do most of the work itself, right?. With Manual transmission, the driver decides the gear and decides the amount of power that should be used from the engine to move the car by using the clutch pedal. Personally, I find Manual transmission to be a lot more engaging and a lot more fun to drive. I also find Manual is safer than Automatic because Manual transmission demands a lot more attention from the driver than Automatic transmission and naturally, drivers paying more attention are safer. It’s probably why I got involved in an accident with my previous car which was a write-off because i was driving an automatic transmission. Having said all of these, I still have an automatic transmission because my wife cannot drive a manual transmission. When we buy our second car, I will definitely do some test drive of manual transmission cars. Hope this helps. :)

Why is it so hard to find a car with a manual transmission? I am trying to buy a car with a manual transmission but apparently not a single dealer has one.

I am assuming that you are from North America. Yes, it is really hard to find Manual Transmission these days. Reason is very simple, ease of use. With traffic getting worse everyday, it is better to drive a automatic car which does the shifting for you. I come from India, where manual transmission is standard and automatic transmission is an additional feature. In USA, if you get the manual transmission, you would save around $1000. Your observation is true in many cases if you are looking for a day to day driver car, examples include Toyota / Honda / Mazda / Nissan, luxury vehicles like BMW / Benz / Audi / Acura / Lexus. If you are looking for a sports car, there are few models which still have manual transmission like Subaru WRX, BRZ, Volkswagen Golf GTI, Nissan 370z. However higher end sports car have paddle shifts which is again for ease of us. I used to drive a Subaru Forester and a Mazda 6, both had Manual transmission, I felt that Automatic car made me sleepy on the road without doing anything. Later after I moved to Washington D.C area and started commuting in 495, I traded them and got Automatic transmission due to the fact that I spend most of my driving time sitting idle in the car. Hope you find the right car for your needs! Cheers.
