I was a bit skeptical of owning a CVT but have enjoyed the one in the CRV and the gas mileage has been good even for AWD. I have a MT 6spd truck to satisfy my non-sports-car (i.e. Not get myself into trouble) MT driving but still think the 5sp Auto that Honda made is one of my favorites ever with the 4cyl. The CVT is almost better than the old auto in several ways and I'm still "learning" what its like to drive it.
Really like how it bumps RPM when breaking and holds RPM when accelerating. Like others have said, using the cruise control really lets the MPG increase and let's the car be smart about Econ.
