The CVT gives a smooth and powerful acceleration.
I've never had any problem passing another vehicle quickly.
The SE was rated as giving a choppy ride due to the CVT, but I don't feel it that way.
It's not obvious at all when the transmission changes gears.
We travel alot and have over 65,000 miles on our 2007.
Fully reclining front seat allows the passenger to sleep comfortably on long trips.
We checked out many comparable models and the back seat is as comfortable as the front seat, so if you have other passengers they'll appreciate it!
I LOVE the fob and it would be hard to go back to using a key.
