Manual. CVT not as reliable is true.

Consumers Reports has down graded Subaru out of their top ten for reliability. I think the WRX is one of the worst but then again the drivers probably have some blame for that.

If I were buying a WRX it would be with the manual. The CVT is bad enough but with the power and torque of the WRX it can't be good.
