This was what my mind was pondering on the way to work today. I know that many modern automatic transmissions are "adaptive". They learn the accelerating behaviors of the driver, and adjust their shift times accordingly for "optimum performance". I've also heard that if you mainly tool around town, that the adaptive learning can also lead to sluggish performance when you actually want to dig in. But I digress... Since a CVT doesn't have any true gears, and seamlessly downshifts, is there such a thing as "adaptive learning" for a CVT trans?
