That's what I don't understand. The S trim does not have the Pure Drive badge on it.

The S Plus, SL, and SV trims only come with the CVT. All 3 of those feature the Pure Drive badge.

That's besides the point, I don't know what could be causing the belt to slip.

At any rate no belt should be slipping on a brand new car.

Rep: 64 S D will become famous soon enough

If your vehicle is equipped with a traditional CVT transmission it does not have any physical gears, and will not have any gear changes.

Also, have you checked to see if the belt "slipping" isn't an alternator disconnect/freewheel like some new 40+mpg economy cars feature?
