Don't know whether the Daf passenger cars were ever on sale in the US, but they were the first to have a van Doorne's transmission (CVT) in a passenger car.

One of the special features of the transmission is that those cars could go as fast in reverse as they can in forward transmission...

Is that feature still in-tact on the Murano's?

Perhaps not that usefull, but great fun! There was a whole reverse racing scene and special track days in the Netherlands...

If I find suitable place I will do it over the weekend (i.e. if I do not get stuck in Montreal). Anyway, for your information - in L MO can go all the way to 118 mph. Also switching from D to L at ANYTIME is no problem.....;)
