I have just turned over 10,000 miles on a 2013 CVT Premium purchased the first week in July. Trips from California to Arizona and Washington States. The car has been flawless, handles freeways and winding roads equally well. Will find out this winter how it does in Sierra snow and also on dirt in Death Valley. Expect Death Valley washboard roads to be a bit bone jarring as new suspension is stiffer and has almost no lean on turns. Have not experienced any difficulty with the CVT and just had a Torquelift receiver and electric brake installed in Kent, WA at the Torguelift store to pull my trailer. The guys at Torquelift were excellent. Put the electric brake controller wire in the lower cubby and can attach the controller when needed. Continental tires are adequate for summer driving and run them at 35 with nitrogen which I have found to give superior mileage. Am considering an Ultragauge so that I cann know what is happening with the car, but cannot yet figure out where to place it as I do not like a windshield mount with wires exposed. Any ideas would be appreciated. That is pretty much it for the report.
