Should you be able to feel the transmission shift.

My wife and I test drove a new Nox the other night. Most of the driving was 35 mph or less. We both could feel the transmission shift and it seems quite noticeable. Is this normal?

Once you have a few miles on the tranny it will smooth out...or maybe you just get used to it. :D Also, if you aren't used to driving a 4cyl with a 6 speed transmission (before the past couple years most were 4-5 speed trannies) then it seems to shift more than you're used to. More shifting is the price you pay for better gas mileage.. :)

Wow - what a slam. Don't let Nissan know how crappy CVTs are !
CVT's are awesome when they are working properly...but early examples were prone to problems. You don't even want to think about how much it costs to rebuild/repair one out of warranty. :eek:
