Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Honda provides the CVT for the new Honda Accord I plan to get but I am very concern about the CVT like the similar defective
one in the past, 1998 to 2005. How reliable is CVT ? any problem with it?

Nissan has been using them for years. They have gotten better over the years and used to keep MPG's up. Frequent some Honda forums for more information. I personally wouldn't purchase a car with one, but that is no indication they are not reliable. Good Luck!
