BTW, did anybody else notice the paddles work in 'D' mode? I guess if you're not happy with the CVTs ratio selection you can force it. It seems to switch back after a while.
That's interesting. And if you convert the Imperial mpg listed there to US mpg, it's a little more. Doesn't make sense.

Yeah the paddles do work in D mode. It mentions that in the manual too. Nice for when you want to quickly go to manual to pass a car or something.

Also today I noticed, I had to pass a tractor and I hit 5000rpm, when I was finished and got back into the right lane I let off the gas completely and it just stayed at 5000rpm and was engine braking big time. I had to get on the gas again to get back up to speed, lol. The CVT behavior is weird.
