Jatco, majority owned by Nissan makes CVT for the Spark and Mirage probably more. Consumer reports says 09's are good, used CVT's on ebay are only $400. Seats are 5x better than the cobalt's. I didn't drive it but the seats were instant confort after 120 miles in the cobalt.

I still like Nissan product better than most GM's but living in the sticks, GM's are just cheaper to buy/own. Love to get a Juke for the wife and Micra for me after I wear the cobalt xfe out or hand it down to my current 14 yo.
I like the Versa and Micra ... with manual transmission.

Just wish we could get the Micra here ...
