This car has a CVT. It will drift back, while in drive, on an incline. Acceleration from standing is delayed. Rapid highway acceleration can seem like being in a slingshot. Sometimes the automatic "shifting" feels unusual/out of synch.
I would NOT recommend any CVT equipped vehicle for stop/go commuting or around town. For highway travel out of traffic, it's good. Personally, I'll stick to fully geared transmissions.
Overall the car is a blast. Comfortable to drive and very sporty. It is average when your just cruising then when you hit the gas pedal it let's loose. It is very fun to drive fits my family and when I feel the need to just pick up speed it does it flawlessly.
GREAT CAR and FAST TOO!
2015 Mitsubishi Lancerjesse P - las vegas, CA06/07/2016
Love the handling of the car, braking is just as enjoyable as taking off and going fast. trunk space is small but besides that I love this car. ive bought a roof rack to make up the lost room in the trunk. the recaro seats hugs you as you take turns. if you cant afford the up keep of it this car aint for you.
