Gorgeous Cross!!! How are you liking it?
Thank you!!
Most of the things seems fine with the Corolla Cross. But there is an issue, may be related to the Direct Shift CVT. Every time it launch after a complete stop, from 0 to around 15 km/h, there is some vibration or slippery feeling. Is it the time it transits from the physical first gear to CVT? I can feel it from the seat and sometimes also from the steering wheel. It is more obvious when I press lightly on the gas paddle (not driving aggressively).

My motto on CVT's is to only buy a hybrid with a eCVT design, since they are a lot better & more reliable than any belt/chain CVT design. Barring that, I will buy something with a proven regular geared automatic (such as Mazda's SkyActiv modernized regular 6-AT), if there isn't a good manual transmission option available.
