I'm heavily leaning toward the MT now. Still not 100% sure, but I'm just about there.
do it! the mpg difference is nearly negligible and it is much more fun to drive. if you think about it, even if the CVT got 10% better mpg (it does get better, 10%, not sure) it has the 1000.00 price premium and that still buys a decent amount of gas and at 15,000 miles/year, it takes 7 years to recoup the 1000 premium
