did CVTs become any good?

Postby geeves » Mon May 23, 2016 6:16 am

Im not going to the dark side. Im still keeping the Bighorn but the wizard is for sale and Im looking at MPV type vehicles.
The 2 Im looking at are a Mitsi Dion with a normal auto but an early GDI engine and a Nissan Lafesta which has a good engine but CVT transmission. Do the horror stories that CVTs seem to have still apply to 2004 Nissans?
Any other vehicles in a similar class I should be looking at?

Mitsi gdi is a nightmare and all the nissan cvt autos are rubbish, the stepper motors play up alot and are expensive, they take there own oil and its also expensive, must be something better out there??
