My mom's caliber has CVT with "Autostick"

Basically, its a clutchless manual sort of thing. when your shifting manually, you can control what gear you want it to be in. The quietness is a factor when using the autostick option because you have to look at your Tachometer cause the car is so dang quiet.

But I love it. when you accelerate, it goes to just under 2000 RPM and stays there, and when you get to 55, it is still there. and its so smooth. *drools* I can't wait till I get it, I'll be 2 years into college, but It'll still be better than driving my Jeep around thats for sure. I can pull the max out MPG's on my jeep by driving like an idiot. I don't know how people complain about getting like 23 mpg in it. How do they do it??? I got 30.6 driving 75 from here to Kansas city and when I got there thats when we filled up.

Also, when your listening to music, the details from your music really sing.. mmmm

Yea.. I drive a Jeep and I'm on a fuel economy site, but you just wouldn't understand... "It's a Jeep thing!" *Jeep Wave*
