So explain to me how you properly warm up a 2012 Impreza with a CVT... I mean you barely touch the gas pedal and it revs up to 3000+ rpm and drops once you reach your cruising speed. I mean I guess you could keep it under 2500rpm for the first few miles to warm it up but you'd barely get it moving, and in traffic that just isn't a viable option.
If I'm at a red light, I hit the gas to do normal acceleration and I'm at 4k rpm before I know it. It's my first CVT so at the very beginning I was like wtf until I learned that that's just how the CVT in these cars work.
