I had a CVT that I loved. As the car devalued, I sold the car, not wanting a CVT repair bill that cost more than the car was worth. I got a good deal on a 6 speed auto Elantra, which I also love, but my wife doesn't. Finally, I got a good deal on a 6 speed manual Elantra(same color)...... which my wife & I both love. Edwin..... yeah, get the manual tranny. I love my wife, too........I promise!
