The CVT isnít bad, like stated, and much better than Nissanís CVTs. I still enjoy driving the car. Fuel economy isnít bad either, but itís a turbo, and we know how that can lead to a heavy foot.

I have started to notice how it will stay in a ďlower gearĒ at times, keeping the rpms up, when itís not needed. The annoyance of it is all me because I pay attention to things like that. My wife doesnít even notice. But other than that, no other issue.
