    The oldest locally available CVT - the Cedia Lancer, still has a lot of units on the road. My cousin has an '03 Cedia, '05 GD Jazz, and '16 GM6 City and fortunately all these CVTs are still running well to this day.

    Although of course there are a lot of horror stories on the Cedia and GD as well. But today's CVTs are a huge leap forward in terms of reliability and performance compared to these early models.

    Correct me if Im wrong, but most “horror” CVT issues that I know of is mostly attributed to using the wrong tranny fluid once it is due for a fluid flush, a lot of folks have put regular ATF on a CVT tranny, of course that will wreck havoc the tranny

    We can't deny how CVTs have evolved to be better....but we're not just limited to comparing current & past versions of it. There are more durable options.
    The thing w/ CVTs is, once they go, they'll go hurting those who get hit badly. Total assembly swap.

    Same goes with a conventional AT. I've had to change the entire transmission of my 04 Mazda 3.

    I'd presume w/ a used unit, sir? With regular ATs, one can rebuild...can't say the same with CVTs...yet.

    Looks a bit Kia-ish to me.

    At least the aesthetics seem to target the younger demographics, as opposed to the current one's design.

    The front looks aggressive.

    While the sides look like its trying to be traditional corporate.

    I still like it though.

    Yeah, they've invested some effort to rid of their boring mold.

    True! though i see a quite a few of civic rs' in relation to the 1.8 civic. medyo na side step ng civic siguro yun "stigma" by being 1.5 albeit being turbocharged.
