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.
Haven't replaced brakes yet since purchase new in 2010 labor day. Low cost of maintenance overall, but many owners forget about the CVT Transmission fluid servicing every 50k miles. Not the best for long distance drives, but for a daily work commute it gets the job done well. Also, I love the handling in this car and how it handles the elements very well.
GREAT CAR and FAST TOO!

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.
