My 19 Touring FWD is one year old this month and I have jusrt under 14K miles. I was a little skeptical of upgrading to the touring because of the tranny issues. However, I really wanted some of the features that the Touring offered so I purchased one. In regard to the tranny, the only time I notice its operation is when I am eyeing the tach or, on occasion, when I am driving around 30 MPH and I take my foot off of the gas. When I do the latter, I do notice a brief stumble or jerkiness. Overall, I am happy with its performance. The freeway off ramp near my home in configured with a sharp bend as well as having to be near the speed limint when entering it. I really enjoy the paddle shifters in this scenario as it allows me to brake the vehicle without solely relying on the brakes. For those familiar with SoCal, I also used the paddles to downshift on the Grapevine. No regrets to date.
