While a manual for those years is avaiable, your options are somewhat limited depending on the engine & Trim. For example, the 2014 limited 3.6 comes with CVT only.
That said, while there are those who distain the CVT, it widely used and accepted as a great compromise between manual and regular sushbox. But let's face it, if you stirrinng your gears, you'll prefer manual.
There is also considerable debate over the 2.5 vs 3.6. The 2.5 will will provide you with a 4-5 mpg advantage but significantly less oomph. The vast majority of OBs owners opt for the 2.5 finding it adequate. The choice really depends on your driving needs, style, preference & how fugal you are.
I have had a 2010 & have a 2015 OB with 2.5 CVT. I have driven them from sea level to 5,000 feet, occasionally towing a 2,000 boat. For me the lower initial purchase cost and better mpg trumps my need for speed. Your mileage may vary!
Either way you will be getting a great car, not perfect, but well balanced, highly sought after and rated.See why the Outback isnamed a "Best Buy" 7 years running
