    That's pretty good actually. Have you noticed the difference in CVT behavior between cruise control and not using cruise control?

    inuvik: when I tested the G4 sedan, I tried cruise several times and didn't see any drop in RPM when engaging it.

    But I was already trying for low RPM by foot (most of the time), so I wonder if the car learned my driving style and RPM was already as low as it could go.

    Perhaps this is a commonality amongst the cars when driven "nicely" for extended periods of time?

    It's possible.
