Is this your first CVT equipped car? It takes some getting used to, but I really enjoy mine after initially thinking the jerkiness was an issue, and recalibrating my throttle foot.
These the Subaru CVTs are quite reliable, not infallible by any means, but better than some of the Honda issues of the past decade.
The only black mark on the record of the CVT is how expensive it is to replace, so if something does go wrong out of warranty its $6-8000 for a replacement one.
Not sure if anything changed on the CVT for the new Forester, but the cost to replace is likely similarly high
