My Partner has a 2008 Nissan Rogue with 54K miles on it. I still haven't warmed up the CVT, I have driven countless Altima's too, though I like how smooth the CVT works, it is refreshing to be able to drink ones latte and not have to worry about the shift point. When it comes MPG, my partner is averaging 26 MPG, and with the countless of rental cars I drive, the Altima has gotten the best MPG out of all the car I have rented. Now a side note, the service cost of the CVT is 300% more then the traditional automatic transmission, just to get the fluid changed in the CVT on the Rogue was $250, this includes the filter. Also Nissan has extended the warranty on Rogue's CVT for 10yr or 120K miles. We haven't had any problems with the CVT.

Hey Fed, the adaptive transmissions have been around, and I'm not too sure if they really are that "adaptive" to ones driving habits, now too sure how a cars computer is going to know, when Mr. Fed is driving, and not Mrs. Fed. However, I can see how a cars computer would be able to learn each time someone gets in the car and drives, I'm sure you are a little more food heavy then say the Mrs. So the car known that with this current driver the car will downshift faster since you are more aggressive with the throttle.

Graphic now add the performance package and one will get a car that will click off 0-60 in about 4 seconds, not back for a slushbox....

26 mpg is pretty decent- my wife's 2011 cr-v has gotten 23mpgs, with a traditional auto - a whopping 170? Hp and beig a tad bit larger the the rogue; best we have yet to spill a latte either - that's with the old tranny set up- 5 speed. We have spilt countless cheerios and soy milk but I blame that on the 1 year old in the rear seat.

FN....I was just at my dealer this evening to pick up my car after having a minor rattle fixed. I should have asked them if the '12-'13 335i gets the performance pack.
BTW...dealer gave me a '12 328i loaner. Really nice cars with upgraded interiors. The "stop/start" feature would be a deal breaker for me, though. The entire car shudders pretty badly when the car starts up again after something like a redlight.
Just by my "Butt-o-meter", I'd say the new F30 328i has a 0-60 time of mid 5s, my 335i (perf pack) is high 4s. GF's S4, probably mid 4s.
Wouldn't mind getting in the seat of the new 335i, however. My sales person was talking to me and stated when one shows up, he'd give me call so I can give it a spin.
How's the NSX search going?

Stop start- I think you can disable that with a switch- don't let it be a deal breaker

Graphic I'm sure the 2012-13 335i will have the performance package soon.
The NSX, I'm on two NSX forum for a couple of years this is how I knew about the one in CT. I'm in no rush for one yet.
As soon as one is purchased this forum will be the third told...
