It just hunts and pecks from time to time, is a little slow with the response. Then again, the last Soul I had came with the DCT, so maybe I'm a little used to the shifts in that thing. I sure wish that tranny was a little more sturdy, as I would most likely still be in the 2018.
Another thing I'm noticing from the built-in navigation, it's not keeping my settings when I save my "home" or "Work" address. Just more things to let the dealership figure out I guess.

I've not seen any detailed information on Kia's IVT. It would be good to know if it is internally different from a true CVT or DCT or automatic. The new Nissan CVT is a combination unit, mechanical 1st gear, CVT 2nd gear. When I'm ready to replace my molten I'll go after a true DCT or stick shift.

Nissan just extended the Warranty's on its CVT to 120,000 because of so many failures... My friend just got a Letter in the MAIL...

I like the basic idea of a true cvt, but no one makes the concept design because it requires the driver to change the way they drive. it's alot like a hydrostat on lawn equipment.

It IS a CVT, KIA's marketspeak is IVT, but it is a CVT. And from everything I am hearing from owners on here and other reviewers is that KIA has one of the best cvt's on the market.
