2017 Spark LS in No VA

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I just picked up a 2017 Spark LS with a CVT a few weeks ago, at a dealership in Tysons Corner in Northern VA, at a year end sale.  It was surprisingly inexpensive and so far I am very happy with the car.  This is my 1st automatic regular driver car in a little over 30yrs, so it is taking just a little effort to get used to it, but I like the CVT much better than the regular automatic that was on some other cars that I have driven. 

 

I traded in my manual 2012 Fiat Pop, which was fairly similar in size and EPA mileage estimate, though the FIAT recommended using 89 octane gas while the Spark doesn't appear to.

 

So far the only issues that I have had are remembering that I don't have to shift (or down shift) and trying to figure out the infotainment system (unfortunately this is also my 1st car that has been smart phone compatible, so I bought my 1st smartphone at the same time, so its taking me a little bit of effort to figure all that out :thud:)

 

Anyway, I really like my new car. :)

My 2017 Spark LS with CVT is now 8+ months old, and love the CVT.

It does not feel like a slush box like all my previous automatic trannys. The car is very peppy at all legal speed limits, and the CVT yields immediate response to the gas pedal operation.
