Does the ability to download transactions from banks expire? If so, after how long? I HATE that this is now "subscription" based.

This particular version doesn't require a subscription although you may feel the need to buy a new version yearly to get the newest features. The official word from Intuit is: "every version of Quicken is supported for only 3 years. After the completion of 3 years the online services and support are discontinued."

Apparently, it does at the appointed "sunsetting" date. I thought this wouldn't prevent me from doing a manual download and was doing them for the last half year anyway. One day I could do it, the next day (official sunsetting day) it gave me an error about not recognizing or trusting my bank.

The only thing I am aware of is that you have to register the product before you can automatically link your bank and credit card accounts.

I don't know for sure but I would bet money that it does. I have been using quicken for about 15 years and they have been requiring an upgrade every 3 years, if you want to continue using online services, for as long as I can remember.
