Depends what you mean by work well, I had a short drive of a newish
Nissan Xtrail with a CVT and if you could ignore the sound of the engine
doing odd things with its revs you would think it was OK.
Newer drivers wouldn't think about it but us old timers are so used to
the way we think things should sound and behave its not easy to accept
something so different.
