2013 Subaru Legacy: Tight Twisty Road
I give the Legacy some stick through a tight twisty section of road. As you might expect the symmetrical AWD is well suited to the challenge. The CVT transmission is a completely different animal than a standard slush box in that it has no real shift points. This means the revs never drop when you mat it, the road speed just climbs and climbs as the engine hangs at 5500 RPM. Once you get used to that it offers some distinct advantages for spirited driving . The 2.5 Boxer engine has a wide power band and from 3K on up to the 6K redline it delivers enough torque to hoon around like a Rally King. The "Manual" function on the CVT is a little queer and nothing like a proper gear box but it lets you keep the revs up and use the engine braking and that bumps up the fun factor. The Floppy Paddle shifters are tied to the steering wheel so when you turn lock to lock there is no way to get your fingers on them until the wheel returns closer to center. Ergonomics are pretty good in the cabin even for a 6-4 250# guy like me...the electric seat adjustments raise lower and tilt the back and seat independently but for someone with long legs the steering wheel will feel far away. The wheel does adjust up/down in/out but not nearly enough to accommodate the range of the seat IMO. Headroom and legroom are more than adequate. Getting in and out of this low slung car could be challenging to the old, infirm, or obese driver, (I qualify for at least 2 out of 3 of those) but I managed to do it without popping a blood vessel or calling 911. Road noise is lower than a lot of cars but certainly not as low as a luxury vehicle. The fan on the AC is quiet even on high. Noisy fans are one of my pet peeves...what good is the comfort of AC on a hot day if you have to wear ear plugs? Overall the car feels well built, solid, no rattles, and most of all capable. The traction control works really well and unlike some cars this feature does not make the car feel slow and ponderous when it kicks in. It corrects slip in little doses without effecting speed or momentum significantly. The OEM tire choice is excellent IMO. The Bridgestone Turunza tires handle wet conditions very well and offer up a fair amount of grip on loose gravel. On asphalt these tires run quietly. If you like this video stay tuned for a more in depth drive with the Legacy where I explore how it copes with loose gravel and how it does on the highway and on an open winding country road or two.

2010 Subaru Outback CVT Test
This video shows the performance of the Subaru Outback CVT transmission for start/stop situations in reverse, with and without VDC enabled. This issue occurs in first gear also but is slightly less pronounced. Local Subaru service technicians called this issue a "no problem found", and verified the latest ECU firmware was in place per TSB # 16-77-09. Subaru customer service has written "working as designed". To see the context of this video, go to forum threads such as: http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/96-outback-unpaved/43975-stuck-snow-whe els-wont-spin.html





2014 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Limited Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF Need a mid-sized sedan under $30,000 with AWD? Right now there's only one option right now. That's because Ford's AWD Fusion is available only in expensive Titanium trim, Suzuki left America and the Chrysler 200 AWD isn't available yet. Even when that 200 AWD does land it will be in a high end 3.6L V6 trim only and is expected to cross the $30,000 mark as well. Since I wasn't able to get one fro Subaru I flew to Denver to rent a brand-new Legacy 2.5 Limited.

Subaru Outback CVT reverse curb test
This video tests a CVT-equipped Subaru Outback (AWD) and an automatic transmission-equipped Honda Civic (FWD) on the same 4.5" curb. This video demonstrates that the Outback vehicle applies inadequate power to the drivetrain in reverse start/stop situations to overcome the curb. The only test constraint for both cars was to NOT allow momentum to overcome the curb. After pressure is applied to the curb with the tires, it doesn't matter how fast one pushes the Outback's gas pedal to the floor--in all cases it cannot climb the curb. The civic eagerly climbs the curb, even after many attempts of trying to get the vehicle to stall on the curb.

The D-Drive Infinitely Variable Geared Transmission
This brain-bending invention could be the holy grail of transmission technology - it allows you to smoothly move through gear ratios from top gear all the way through neutral and into reverse without ever disengaging the engine. Plus, there's no friction drive component, so the power is always transmitted through gear teeth - there's never any slip or friction losses. In fact, the D-Drive's main difficulty is that it's so damn hard to understand that people don't really know what to do with it. So here's a close-up look, which will hopefully get a few people thinking.

XTRONIC CVT in the 2013 Nissan Altima | AutoMotoTV
SUBSCRIBE for daily car videos! http://vid.io/xkQ Subscribe for more car videos: http://bit.ly/15DV2NN Next-generation XTRONIC CVT® Nissan first adopted the Continuously Variable Transmission in 1992, then refreshed and modernized it a decade later, becoming one of the world's first automotive manufacturers to include the CVT on passenger cars. Now, 10 years on again, they've taken it to another level. The 2013 Nissan Altima will be the first Nissan with the next-generation XTRONIC CVT. The dramatically improved technology achieves a significant 15% increase in fuel efficiency, accelerates faster, runs quieter and offers an even more seamless shifting experience. How does it do this? By giving it the world's highest transmission ratio and also reducing the transmission's weight, length, friction, and even the amount of transmission fluid needed. The transmission ratio is 7.3:1, which is a broader ratio than you'll find in an average automatic, and far superior to the 6.0:1 you'd find in a similar model vehicle. Intelligent CVT Logic ensures that the transmission is always in the right gear, which eliminates any wasteful gear hunting. The expanded gear ratio also reduces engine revolutions drastically, allowing the Altima to cruise at 60 miles per hour at fewer than 1500 RPMs. The benefits of lower RPMs are obvious -- better fuel efficiency and a noticeably quieter ride. So, what does all this mean for the driver? Efficiency: up to 15% increase in fuel efficiency. Performance: it delivers absolutely seamless performance and alleviates many of the concerns that drivers held about earlier CVT's. Quiet: the higher-efficiency and 40% reduction in friction allows the car to perform at higher speeds at very low RPMs, practically eliminating all noise from the transmission.
