    Yeah, I've read something about this, and 300k is too much for my budget, the most is 250k

    Thanks for all those replying, I know there are others like me as well, young professional and first time car buyer, so I'm sure this will be beneficial to many I just enjoy researching about the cars that you guys mentioned Right now, I'm using (and practicing) my aunt's vintage 1989 toyota corolla, once I'm ready and I manage to find "the one" then at least, it'll be driven well to make sure it'll last just like the corolla )

    Yeah, those were the CVTs that became prone to tranny failure because Honda placed ATF that have caused it's failure and it was fixed for the 2006 models & above when Honda was able to put on the correct CVTF for it.

    Well, you could still opt for the MT but in the end, it's your choice after all. Do update us once you're able to buy your car.

    Goodluck.

    so their CVT AT failed because the wrong type of cvt fluid was used?
    they did not have to re-design that cvt of theirs at all?
    all thay had to do was to replace the fluid with the more correct one, and it would have functioned well..?

    You read it right. The first batch, which were the '03-'04 models, were the ones that were mostly affected by this. Somebody from Honda told my father before and in some old threads here regarding that CVT problem, you can read more about that. But those who experience other problems may be because they did not follow the CVT's PMS, which includes the CVTF being changed every 20,000kms and I'm not sure if there are any other parts of the CVT that has to be changed during the PMS, too.

    The new CVTs of Honda already possess a torque converter, as opposed to what it had a decade ago.

    Hi sir baka pwede natin buhayin tong thread . I'm a newbie and we're planning to buy our first car (me and my gf) the budget is 180-200k . Any car that you can suggest ? Medyo nagustuhan namin yung mitsubishi lancer cedia platform pero marami akong nabasa dito sa tsikot na it has a bad reputation in terms of FC, then may nakita kaming honda city idsi M/T 2003 model and problem naman is baka masikip and underpowered (if ever umuwi ng province w/c is sa cagayan valley pa and puno ang kotse). And haggang ngayon po ba konti palang din ang mga mekaniko na gamay ang CVT trans ? mas balak ko po kasi ang matic . Thanks!
