If the owners do take care of the oil changes I am positively sure the failures will be minimal, though the question if the gearbox is as durable as the standard auto is questionable, as many sites have indicated that a well cared CVT gearbox has a lifespan of 120-160K km, while an standard box will last far longer with minimal maintenance!



Are the above infos true?

My Airwave gearbox just gameover at 220 000 km.

A mechanic I spoke to told me that this is a very common problem.

One of his customer's Odyssey game over at 160 000km.

New gearbox should be around 3k while used one maybe 1.5k. That was the price quoted to me when I enquired for my previous Airwave. In the end, I never replaced but sold the car off. Haha...

It seems like CVT transmission box though gives good fuel economy and pure smoothness, isn't well known for overtaking response and long term reliability.

I think it is quite impressive that your gearbox can last that long. You have must done preventive maintenance by changing ATF fluid at stipulated servicing intervals. thumbsup.gif

Any chances of saving it?

How about opinion from specialized workshops like Khang Auto?

My coltplus 6speed CVT noise started at 30k+ totally dead at 61k. Overhaul it, but lucky only changed 2 barings. 1 of baring broken in pieces another 1 broken soon but lucky never hurt the pulley. Total damage $1.1k. If replace used 2nd hand gearbox will cost $3k+.

A total overhaul of my gearbox will cost close to $3k.

I normally change my GB oil abt 30 000km interval.

Audiorook, try calling ellipseauto transmission @ 64560090, they will settle your issue at a fraction of the price. Look for uncle Meng.

Mine is also CVT. My mileage is more than 100k.

I do preventive maintenance by changing the CVT fluid at 30k servicing interval.

one good prevention on CVT gearbox is to stop the car totally before switch gear.
i believe most CVT drivers when parking, tend to engage to reverse gear when the car is not totally stop.
this might somehow interrupt the CVT gearbox. hence, somehow damage may incurs.

i also heard that the 4-CVT gives more problems than a 6-CVT or higher.
a general rule of thumb before a CVT gearbox went kaput; with a rough estimatiion of 4-CVT about 160,000km and 6-CVT about 240,000km.
