sometimes after starting the cube and then accelerating down the road, a subtle knocking sound appears for a few seconds and then disappears. it almost sounds like gears are adjusting, like a quick dot-dot-dot noise. is this normal with the cvt?
Not sure if that's normal, but I do notice that when accelerating, and having to slow down for a car turning or a light changing, that when I get back to the throttle, it feels very sluggish, and kinda chugs a little, add more throttle and it down shifts (adjusts to a lower ratio on the pulley I guess) and all is well.
Is it me, or does it seem like the CVT O/D off mode is too low geared for city streets? I used the O/D off function yesterday, and I was running 3000 rpm at 35 mph, it just seemed like it was stuck in 1st gear and whining a bit. I can't really see a difference in OD off and Low gear mode.
yeah, i get it when accelerating after starting the car for the first time but i've also noticed it when braking quickly (which wasn't the ABS). i suppose you could call it a thumping, like a quick thump-thump-thump and then it goes away. sounds like it's normal with the cvt. anyone notice this with a 6sp manual?
