Vehicle 1LT 4dr Hatchback (1.2L 4cyl CVT)
Review UPDATE: Transmission problem NOT resolved by gasoline change. Tranny got worse and almost rear-ended when it hesitated to pull into moving traffic. Dealerships either denied problem (played dumb) or acknowledged and said there was no solution. After a near collision, I traded it in (took a huge loss of $$) and bought a new Ford C-Max. The C-Max (also having a CVT transmission) runs smooth as silk, accelerates without an ounce of hesitation, gets better MPG, more room, and much better build quality. Good trade, though too bad about the transmission on the Spark as otherwise, I like the car as a commuter vehicle and the inexpensive price. Don't know if this problem has been resolved on later models as I've not been following this since getting the C-Max.
