H6-3.0 in Manual?
Posted 29 September 2003 - 12:25 PM
New to this board, but not to automotive BBS's....been into Saabs for a long time, but always liked Subarus and may get one as my next car.
Im thinking about a H6-3.0 (Outback). Is there any hope of this car being offered in the USA as a 5-speed, or better yet a 6-speed? Neither my wife nor I like automatics.
Does Japan have it in a manual trans?

In answer to your question, if you want something on a new soob and it doesn't come that way here, chances are the rest of the world gets it(IE D/R trannies in bajas and outbacks)

By the way, the new sport shift automatic is said to be really improved. My brother drove a 2.0 with this new type and he was happy with it. Especially the manual mode seems to be good - you can shift similar to a "normal" manual gearbox. There is no "lag" when the lever is pushed. And it also will not shift by itself - although if you are at the redline! My brother told me it's like normal shifting - only without a clutch.
