Honda CR-V with a CVT transmission

Asked by Mar 26, 2017 at 07:22 PM about the 2017 Honda CR-V Touring

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Thinking about buying a Honda CR-V that has a CVT transmission.  I have
heard that this type of transmission only lasts for 60,000 miles. Am I taking a
chance buying this car since I will put more than 60k miles on it?

Buy an extended warranty. Cvt transmissions have been troublesome.

I believe Honda's CVT transmissions have proven to be reliable. The 60k lifespan is more applicable to early Nissan units; perhaps that's what was meant when the advice was given to you.

Thank you for responding. I believe the advice refers to the older CVT's. I can't believe that so many auto manufacturers would use CVT's if they were not reliable.

CVT's are used to get tiny improvements in gas mileage to comply with insane EPA regulations. Hopefully Trump will sh^t can all the anti-car regs that Obama put in.

My 2016 Subaru Forester had to have the entire CVT tranny replaced at 68K Miles it was $9000 plus labor good thing i had the extended warranty. If you drive a lot like I do I would be worried I will be forced to purchase something else before my warranty expires I was hoping to get at least 200K out of it but I cannot afford another CVT issue I no longer trust any vehicle with a CVT so do your research.

I have a Rogue with 105k miles and a CVT. Absolutely no problems with the CVT.

My '13 Outback blew it's CVT at 75k. Subaru completely covered the replacement even though I was out of warranty by 15k miles. Subaru has extended CVT warranties to 100k miles nationwide.

Subaru has seen the writing on the wall. First their engines burned oil and they were sued. They are trying to get ahead of lawsuits over the CVT by extending the warranty.
