Purchased As Used
I've had this car for four months, and other than a couple of snafus with the dealer (missing lugnuts, a couple of IOU's they never fulfilled), it's been a fantastic car. It isn't quick off the line, but once the CVT stops rubber-banding, it moves. Quickly. Probably would have been better with a manual or a 5- or 6-speed automatic, but I think they thought it would get better fuel economy. It doesn't.
Also did a tire change, as the stock 18" Firestone tires were junk. Put Yokohama AVID Ascend rubber all around, and it handles like a beast now, and with little to no drama. High-speed cornering is a breeze, and gone is the feeling under hard acceleration that the car may just decide on its own that it wants to see how that guard rail over to the right feels.
The tire change also helped considerably with fuel economy, oddly enough, with average economy going from about 24mpg up to about 28 or 29. A huge difference.
Otherwise, all around a great car. The ride is firm, but not harsh. The CVT drones a bit, but not annoyingly so. The AutoStick feature can be enjoyable on twisties. Glad I bought it.
