Default Re: Should I Buy a CVT or Not?

go drive one and see how you like it... most people love it or hate it. i personally love it. its all personal preference though. the 100,000 mile warranty on the tranny is pretty nice

what sports car do you have, if i may ask?

I would def. recommend the CVT (07-08) in your case for daily driving.

120K Nick!

I miss hearing gear shifting sounds, but beyond that, I love mine. Takes a day or so to get used to, so for what you're looking for, should be cool.

CVT!!!!

The risk of buying a 04-06 with a bad tranny is kind of high these days. Most people trade them in before the tranny goes.

I had a problem with my main stereo harness to the rear a day after I got it. Thankfully that's all I've had problems with. (2008 SE purchased in Oct '07)

08 SL w/ 13k
my passenger front speakers cut out... after 3 visits, 1 new speakers and 2 new radios they realized there was an extra amp in the rear deck that needed to be replaced. currently im getting rear suspension noise when someone gets out or in the rear and a squeek when i get out the driver side. The squeek is annoying sounds like a pets toy.

Yeah, I hear the same thing now at days. I think it's an alignment issue.......got it fixed once but there were a couple of situations with bumpy roads that brought it back.
