2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


First time Subaru owner, 2013 Crosstrek purchased Feb 2013. Less than 5000 mi, 5 dashboard warning lights started flashing, transmission won't shift. Had it towed to dealer. Not offered loan vehicle, so need to rent car at my own expense until repairs are made. I expected better of a vehicle costing nearly $25K.
Also, very poor mileage, my best highway mileage is 26 mpg, best all-around mileage is 22 mpg. Definitely does not live up to advertising.

I will not buy another Subaru.

I am having exactly the same issue. Can you tell me what they found out on yours.? It would be a big help. Thanks.

Exactly how is a CVT transmission supposed to shift?
