Manual transmission was actually offered until 2018 for Non turbo Foresters.
The turbo manual combo ended in 2008 and is generally far more adored by the Subaru community.
My LGT wagon had a manual. 05 was the first year of that generation (2.5 turbo!), and IIRC the only year the turbo wagon had a manual in the US. 207,000 very fun miles in that. Back when I was in the Subaru community, it was mainly riceboys that couldn't drive manuals.

I must confess I didn't hate automatics in those times, but didn't really care about them as much as I do now. I still can drive manuals if it's a life-or-death situation, but it's quite painful due to the patellar chondromalacia.

If driving it is painful, it reduces the quality of the drive. None of my conditions are that far gone yet. I just hope I can get a Model 3 before they are.

I didn't feel so much pain the last time I drove a manual, but whenever I was asked to drive when I had pain on my knees I managed to avoid it.

I always had patellar displasia, as it's linked to genetics, but I didn't treat it until last year and used to push the limits. About a year ago a friend of mine got quite surprised to see me picking a table that would be supposed to be heavy to a point that he didn't feel comfortable to move it by himself.

I'd much rather fit hand controls to an ICE-powered car with a manual transmission instead of switching to an EV.
