THE CVT TRANSMISSION IS DESIGNED FOR FUEL ECONOMY , IT IS COMPLETLY DEIFFERENT DESIGN THAN TRADILTION , THE CAR WILL FEEL DIFFERENT SHIFTING WIZE IF U NEVER DROVE ONE, IT FEELS LIKE A LONG GEAR THAT NEVER ENDS . AND THE ENGINE WILL REV UP HIGN AND NOISY WHILE PUSHING THE GAZ THROTLE IT FEELS LIKE THE TRANS IS SLIPPING BUT IT IS NOT. AND IF THEY DO FAIL IT TEND TO BE EXPENSIVE. YOU WILL SEE THAT SYSTEM ON A SMALLER COMPACT CARS , SPORTS CAR ARE STILL USING THE TRADITIONAL TRANSMISSION DESIGN SINCE CUTOMERS WANT TO FEEL THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTING THAT THEY ARE USED TOO . THE SYSTEM HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN RELIABLE YET SINCE FAILURE ARE OCCURING AND CUSTOMER DEMAND FOR THEM IS LOW BUT I MSURE BY THE THECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN IMPROVEMENT IN THE FUTURE IT WILL BECOME MORE RELIABLE AND THAT EPENSIVE TO REPAIR HOPE THA HELPS YOU ​A POSITIVE RATING IS APRACIATED SINCE THAT IS HOW WE GET COMPENSATED . PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS ON THIS . BE GLAD TOA NSWER THEM FOR YOU
