Hi. Just bought a new 2017 Spark LT with CVT in Silver Ice. Pretty pleased so far. Build quality seems good, and the car feels bigger than it is. I'm used to driving a stick (my boyfriend can't), so had to go with the CVT. Not sure how I feel about the CVT so far -- seems to lag a bit. But it'll be nice to have in stop-and-go traffic. (I like Silver Ice, but I really wanted Splash. My significant other didn't. Some of the other colors (e.g., Toasted Marshmallow) just didn't work for me. I couldn't find much reliability data on the Spark, but given that it's built by GM Korea, I'm hoping it'll hold up. Fingers crossed.
