I wonder if the problem is the CVT at all, or is it the electronic throttle body or "engine braking". It definately has a delay between steepping on the gas and snapping into a response.
The Necessary Evil
With the avg miles per year of 12K you may not get a lot of feed back on that yet. Three to four years seems to be the normal life span on earlier models.
my parents have a kisazhi, bought it about 3 months ago, and they absolutely love it. its cvt is seamless, when I drove it, I didn't even think about the tranny. Just how smooth and sporty the car felt. Our family car is a saab 9-5 aero, and the kisazhi compares well with it, though I would prefer a turbo kisazhi with a 4wd (4wd is avail, but only one engine with 185hp I4 I think?) a cvt seems like a perfect mate to a Turbo charged car, with no drop in RPMs, you keep the power on. I would love to see a turbo patriot/compass. Like a 1.8l, with 180-200 hp, but a wopping 200lb/ft of torque at 2000 rpm. I think that's what this car is seriously lacking is the grunt that comes with a high peak torque.
