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.
Great car for racing and daily

First this car is a racing car, if you don't like to race or drive fast please don't buy it, now if you buy it for the right reason then its amazing. I take my evo mr to the tracks to race drag strip. After beating 14 BMW me, 15 camaro z28 and 13 mustang 5.0 i knew this car is special. Mr has stock launch control which is amazing. Regular driving is like a toyota corolla, i had a corolla and its the same feeling. Not bad and not great on gas. Crusing i average 25mpg, regular driving i average 21mpg

I have had the Ralliart for over 2 years now. The AWD is great for winter driving and car has plenty of power stock. Lot's of aftermarket parts and with a proper tune can beat a stock EVO. Maintenance can be a little expensive, so please do your research to make sure you can afford the proper upkeep. I had a great experience with Carmax and the whole car buying experience was a breeze.
