Chrysler effectively killed the 200 when they put the 9 speed in it. I never read one good review on the car because of the way the transmission worked. I think the CVT gets a bad rap because people don't realize that it is a different driving experience and, they believe that since it is different, it must not be as good as an automatic. A CVT appeals to me because it is much less complicated than an automatic (whether 6,9,10 speed).
