cvt transmission reliability?

Asked by Jan 25, 2015 at 02:11 PM about the 2015 Honda Accord Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello,

I'm looking at the new Honda Accord, but this whole new CVT transmission sounds risky
(in terms of reliability). Also while driving it, I feel like my 08 honda civic lx feels way more
powerful. Wanted to see what you guys though?

Thanks

I personally would avoid any vehicle that has a CVT transmission. There have been many issues with them from several manufacturers. I you do decide to get one I would strongly suggest extended warranty.

I agree with Bob. I test drove a 2014 Corolla and a 2014 Camry, decided not to buy either, partly because of the CVT. For one thing they are sluggish on acceleration, the Camry was a regular dog from 0-40..but then took off like a rocket. I don't like the idea of a transmission driven by a belt.

After 100k with a 4cyl cvt I wouldn't hesitate with another Honda...A little getting use to but concentrated on the fuel savings and smooth shifting...( I could put into sport mode and have a little fun on the winding roads, very responsive. It is true however, not every manufacturer has a winning formula...check it out.
