Hi Everyone! I went to pick up a new Silver EX CVT Navi tonight. I wanted silver and it was on the showroom floor, which should have been a clue. Anyway, went to pick it up later and the mileage was not filled in on the purchase order. So I refused to proceed until they provided the number. 730 miles!!! WHAT!?!? I told them I wanted to buy a NEW one, not a demonstrator. They said it wasn't a demo - it was the first one the dealer got in last fall and it had been on a lot of test drives, and spent the winter sitting in the showroom. I said I didn't want it because I know how > I < drive on test drives, and assumed others abused it in the same way. They offered to take off 50 cents / mile, or ~ $350. I was reluctant to take one that had been sat in by who knows how many people all winter, with everyone tweaker all the knobs and working it over. I told them I needed to drive it, and they said it was outside already running. (more about that later). I took it on a drive and the CVT was not at all smooth like the other two I drove. It was "crunchy", like the pulleys weren't sliding smoothly and it was stuttering mid shift. Ad the fabric was marred, and there was some kind of gooey stuff that wouldn't come off the dash. I got back and they said the sales manager said they would take off $700! Then they let it slip the battery was dead and they had to charge it (which explains why they left it outside running). In fairness, the dealer was cool about it - they didn't try to strong arm me, apologized profusely and said they wanted me to be happy. They offered the same deal on the same color, or any other color I wanted, even if they had to get it from another dealer. I'm still deciding - but - Have there been any general problems with the CVT I should be aware of? I've been searching the forum and haven't noticed a pattern of CVT issues, but wanted to ask. Thanks everyone for listening and I hope to become a member with my own CRZ soon!
