    Nope. You should see me drive that thing. Hehehe

    It just feels soft off the line but when itís moving, it will test your nerves.

    If a CVT tranny is being cared for, it wonít be a problem. Case in point- the Jazz/City IDSI. There are still a bunch of them on the road and some of them are more than 15 years old already.

    The million dollar question seems to be -- which transmission will last longer -- conventional A/T or CVT, all other things being equal?

    Most of those city/jazz might be manual transmission perhaps? But yes, if you replace the fluid regularly, almost always it will last. Problema sa pinoy kinakaligtaan kahit simpleng pag palit

    since 2015 subaru america sold more or less 3million cvts.

    imagine if 10% have failed. thats 300,000 lawsuits.
    5% is still 150,000..

    failure rate is less than 1%...

    Then itís not the fault of the vehicle if the owner is stupid about maintenance. Itís like saying a weapon is evil even though the one who wields it is the real culprit.

    But given the same abuse/neglect, which one would most likely last and be easier to repair?

    All cars will break down over time. It is up to the owner how to address his challenges with maintainance.
