Air conditioning is a must? Buying advice? Live in Indianapolis? Mainly highway driving to and from work..30 miles each way..I am open to any advice..thanks Dennis

Well, the 5-speed gets better mileage, but the CVT puts out less pollution. The only option on the 5-speed is A/C, which comes standard with the CVT. It seems to be easier to find the CVT version. If you don't care about color, and are willing to travel to pick up the car, it's not too hard to find one. If you get particular then you'll probably have to order it, and delivery seems to be taking over three months.

It's worth looking at the Civic, too.
