    I'm just over 3500 miles right now.

    Hey Tx, it's always nice to get a little money "back" from the mothership!

    What is it about the IVT that is getting a little annoying?

    Thanks.

    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.

    DCT's shift very fast. They were designed for formula one race cars for that very reason, ie, they shift much fast than the race car driver can shift manually. It makes sense that when going from a DCT to an automatic transmission, the auto would feel sluggish.

    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.

    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.

    Every review I've read of the 2020 Soul says the IVT is a CVT.

    The sluggishness on downshifts is one thing, as it makes the engine feel even less responsive, but what can be a bit unnerving is when it kicks in after the need for acceleration is gone and it's still trying to hold onto that lower "gear".

    It's supposed to be an "Intelligent" CVT, but it still stumbles and drones when you need to pass. I may try to mess with manual mode just to see if that helps, although I have yet to read many reviews about "manual mode" on anything being any more responsive than full auto mode.

    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.
