2015 Outback - Bye bye 3 pedals

I suppose it was only a matter of time for them to eliminate the manual, too bad.

The automatic has been standard equipment since 2005 IIRC. Manuals were optional.

This sunset of manuals came up in another post a month or two ago, IIRC.

All 2015 Outback models come standard with the Lineartronic ® CVT (continuously variable transmission), which features paddle - shift control switches and helpsboost fuel economy significantly.
While this might suggest there is no manual transmission - it does not say that a manual isnt an option....only time will tell I guess...

I knew it - too bad.. Thought there wouldn't be a manual offered since that was the case with the upcoming Legacy. I do like the new Outback though. Not that I'm in the market for a new Subaru, I like my 2002 Forester 5MT very much.
Scooner: "I don't think you can even buy a new pickup now days with a manual, that's the fun of driving i think." ....I think the only full size new 4WD pickup truck with a manual transmission is the Dodge Ram 2500 with the 5.9L Cummins diesel.
upnothguy - Nice '95 Legacy S. My son has a '95 S Sedan. I'll guess it's got about 178k miles. Great 2.2L engine
