What CVTs are you referring to? I know that Nissan has had issues with their CVTs, but there's many cars with CVTs out there that have had no more issues than conventional automatics have. CVTs have also been around quite a long time. All Toyota and Lexus hybrids since 1997 have used a CVT, for example. I don't know how you got to the conclusion that they are less reliable than conventional autos (EDIT: that could be true, I just don't know how you know). The CVT was really a godsend on the Mitsubishi crossover rental that I had a few months ago...the thing was so gutless that it had to be in high RPMs to be able to get out of its own way, which it still had trouble doing.

The Justy used a CVT way back when. EDIT: I'm not saying that the Justy's CVT was anything like modern CVTs, just to be clear, Clarence.
