Good article on recent CVT development here:

http://www.edmunds.com/news/innovations/articles/43036/article.html

Interesting to note that the reason we don't see more cars with CV Transmissions is that they have not perfected them to work with higher performance engines until recently. Apparently Nissan engineers are among the first to production with a CVT design that will stand up to the V6.

It was also enlightening that the auto transmission is far more complex than a CVT, so repairs down the road will theoretically be simpler (to just changing belts perhaps?). Sure hope the drivetrain warranty covers this for several years in case this is a major operation.
