5-Speed vs. CVT
I'm thinking of purchasing a Patriot and am torn regarding which transmission to get. I drive mostly highway miles with some small hills along the way. On test drive, I noticed just a little bit of jerkiness in the automatic transmission. Could this spell early problems for the CVT? Any thoughts??
