Funny. Better than the standard answer: Google is your friend.

Not sure what you are looking for, but my nearly 3-year experience is that the CVT in an Accord has a bit of roughness at low speeds and no issues at all at higher speeds. Kind of spooky on highways when RPM goes up and downon hills without any input, but you get used to it. Compared with a 2003 Accord 4-cylinder manual, the 2014 Accord 4-cylinder CVT gets much better fuel mileage, both city and highway. Got a little over 40 mpg on an easternseaboard trip, might see better in the Midwest.

I have a 2013 and agree about the roughness at low speeds. No biggie but
quite noticeable initially. Now I am used to it.

It also seems to provide a lot of engine braking, something I would not
expect with FWD.

Damn! I'm a Honda man, dislike automatic transmissions but was considering
buying a second-hand CVT Honda. (I used to have a CVT step-through scooter
back in the 1970s and really liked the idea, wondered why it took so long to
get into cars.)

On second thoughts high engine braking might not be a deal-breaker - one of
the (many) things I dislike about traditional auto trans is the *lack* of
engine braking. I guess I need to test drive one, and not just a putter
around town type of test drive.
