Assuming proper maintenance is done.

 

I unsure if 4 / 5 / 6 speed n 8 / 9 speed belong to same cat, thus the separate cat.

With today's technology it's down to driving patterns and drivers' input. To me hardware alone cannot say for sure, the gearbox software plays a part too.

 

As for dual clutch gearboxes they are still in its infancy in automobiles although they have a history on boats. It still needs fine tuning for its hardware and software.

From engineering point of view the CVT is as fragile as the DCT.

 

Always a price to pay to save fuel...if you want to burn more money then stick with a slushbox.

My kia Forte, 4speed, survived 270K without failure before i sold it away last week.

 

i did my best know how maintenance to the transmission, change ATF every 9 months + ATF filter every 3 years.
