cvt transmission reliability?
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?
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.
I have 2016 Accord Sport. Love the cvt trans. Commute 900 miles per week. 85k and only problem was daytime running light particularly burned out. You need the entire headlight assembly. Honda want $1,300.00 for the part. Online # Carid parts , fixed me up for a little over $300. Self install intimidating but not too bad
