    Avoid CVTs and DCTs. But between them, I might pick CVTs as they seem to be the lesser evil. DCTs are prone to overheating in extreme traffic.

    Toyota CVTs are the most reliable but they are still CVTs... probably won’t last as long as a conventional auto

    it should be ok if low mileage and fluids changed at right intervals. normally owners keep their prius'. if theyre selling.. its rather fishy imo.

    It’s the same but the VW DSG is apparently more reliable than Ford’s. If it were me I won’t get a VW with a dual clutch. Just get a car with a conventional auto. New mazda 3 seems very promising since everyone else seem to be going the CVT route. Wish they’d bring the new Focus here with 8 speed auto though.

    Keen observation ko po mga Sirs/Madame


    CVT..

    Talagang Forever ang CVT & Hybrid...

    SG, HK, Macau, (SG,[Grab/(Taxi)]. HK, [Uber(both hybrid/DCT)], Macau, Camry Taxi, [both hybrid & gas conventional transmission])

    DCT..

    as long as na hindi naman abusive usage at high RPM... tatagal naman din ito..

    Basta ako.. MT or AT.. alaga sa proper maintenance.. at proper driving.. walang kaba..

    Mitsu mirage, asx, lancer.

    Afaik, mirage uses jatco but there's no confirmed issue YET even after 5 yrs plus in the market.

    Suzuki celerio current gen uses cvt as well. Not sure who is the supplier.

    Most German vehicles use DCT. Euro-designed Ford vehicles also use DCT. There are a few Korean vehicles that also have DCT.

    As for CVT, most Japanese manufacturers use them for their vehicles. Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, and Suzuki.
