CVT Owners Thread

I'm planning to buy either a 2007 Honday City 1.3 CVT for 665,000 or a Honda Jazz CVT for 690,000... any tips?

    I don't have one but so far the owners i know are happy, especially with their fuel economy... I read only of one Jazz with a CVT problem (and a 2nd hand unit at that) but otherwise, as long as you maintain it properly then it should be hassle free for the years to come.

    Replace the CVT fluid regularly. The manual should have a schedule for that.
  • the 2002 lancer's a cvt. k lang.. drive is smooth and quiet.. pero acceleration isn't very good.

    but the 2008 lancer could be 1.8 liters. and that might cure the power issue.

    we have a honda jazz 1.3 idsi and its cvt is as smooth as silk. almost no shift shock to speak of. :)
  • We have a City 1.5 CVT and power is definitely NOT a problem. I'd feel safer in a City rather than a jazz if you take occasional out of town trips pero kung 1.3 Liter lang budget mo and halos never ka naman lumalabas ng city, Jazz na lang para hindi underpowered.

    I test-drove a Jazz 1.5 with CVT a year and a half ago. Manual mode's responsive enough, but there's still a tinge of what the Americans call "motorboat syndrome." You floor the pedal, the engine gets noisy, but the road speed just climbs at a steady rate as the CVT's computer works out the ratios of the drive pulleys.

    Compared to traditional torque-converter automatics, CVTs sap less power in their operation...but they're still no match for a proper manual gearbox.

    My two cents
  • Drove my friend's 2007 Honda City 1.3 AT(CVT), gear change is smooth as silk, more than satisfying acceleration, superb fuel economy. Had to teach how to drive, impulsive buyer, bumili ng car pero hindi cya marunong mag-drive. What I hate though is the car's styling. But it terms of the tranmission, two thumbs up for the CVT, parang ayaw ko na mag-drive ng stick.
  • ^ any 1.6Liter sedan with MT would pwn that 7 speed cvt by a mile.
