If you don't keep a car past it's warranty period, my thoughts won't matter. I haven't had any experience with a Subaru automatic (and hope that I never have), but in general, I think automatics suck. I've kept a lot of vehicles for long periods of time and of the few with automatics, too many of them (four of six) had to have the transmissions rebuilt.

AWD is controlled by a viscous coupling in my 2004 manual transmission Forester. It is electronically controlled in the automatic Forester.
