2015 has been out since May 2014, so no refresh. 2016 ?? - most likely similar to the 2015 Impreza refresh.
2016 2.5i CVT needs paddle shifters (and they should retrofit to 2014 and 2015). It is unsafe to drive in the snow/ice without being able to control what "gear" you are in. L(ow) doesn't cut it.
Yes, Wes, a 5/6 spd manual doesn't have the control issue. But, my bad left leg/knee can't handle a manual daily driver.
Large hose clamps and/or twisted wire also work ... it's not pretty (sorry, Pat ), but can extinguish the demons.I've heard of some folks (especially on gen-1 Outbacks) tack welding them in order to silence the little heathens. Hopefully, yours is an easier fix than that.
Traded my 2015 Forester 2.5i Touring w/ CVT for an A4 Avant TDI S-Line w/ 6 speed manual and right hand drive ... in England for the week.
Making out pretty well driving on the left and shifting with my left hand. Got to be careful with minimal ground clearance and 40 series tires.
Yeah, it was weird driving into the dealership with a brand new car.
