My '17 Premium is my first CVT. I purchased it with the expectation of it being a solid, reliable, utilitarian vehicle. The CVT attracted me because of it's ability to optimized gas mileage. Living in a very rural area and being a frugal sort, I have developed driving habits that also optimizes my mpg. 90% of my driving is in rolling foothills/mountains, on State Routes where speeds are 60 mph or less. My conservative pedal foot and the CVT seemed to be nicely matched. No complaints.
After 1k break-in I have been manually calculating my mpg to see how accurate the vehicle readout is. Yesterday's math was 185 miles on 5.34 gallons, 34.6 mpg. Vehicle was estimating 35.3 mph. Now I am really getting to like the CVT, and the engine.
So put me into the "love it" column.
