When I went to buy my Crosstrek the sales manager came out to explain a few things about the car. One of the features he banged on about at some length was the 60/40 front back power split, which helps to give it great mpg. Hmmm, I was buying one with standard transmission, so I asked "does that apply to the manual as well". "Oh yes", he says. WRONG!!! He was a bit embarrassed to say the least.
