Ford 500 AWD 5-yr/60k warranty??

I've been seeing commercials showing that Ford Five Hundred AWD SEL's are now being offered w/ a 5-yr/60k warranty, and a price of $23,000 or so.

The wife needs a new car, and I'm really interested in this deal (plus I can get X-plan). Her work is such that she HAS to get there (medical field), even in the worst snow storm (she took my truck this winter during an 18" snow and was the only one to get through!!)

My biggest concern: The All Wheel Drive version uses the CVT transmission, not the 6-speed. I've heard that Ford will be dropping the CVT in the future...is there a problem with them??

I'd appreciate any informed opinions from Five Hundred owners, and especially any dealer mechs. I'd really like the Ford AWD, but my wife would prefer a Subaru. I'd rather buy American.

Thanks!!
