On the internet. It it's on the internet, you can trust it! Maybe he saw it on Craigslist.

Both engines for the 2016 Civic are built in Anna, Ohio. The CVT's are sourced from there and from Mexico. The 1.5T engine is mated to a CVT derived from the Accord, and is tuned to the 1.5T to deliver a taller final ratio for better fuel economy, along with other enhancements to accommodate the extra torque produced by this engine. The 2.0l engine has it's CVT sourced from Mexico, as it does duty on other Honda products. Any concern as to the longevity of the CVT in these cars is unwarranted, given the experience that Honda has with them, and of course their bulletproof reputation. As always, anything that is immersed in oil or fluid needs to to be checked regularly to ensure proper levels, and of course changed at recommended intervals.

I guess all of this begs the question: Does the CVT in the 10th Gen. Civic have a dipstick so we can check the condition and level of the ATF inside?

No: 1) what could you tell about the condition from looking at it? ("How it looks" has been used to sell more lubricant than how it really is for a long time.) and 2) it isn't supposed to consume any, so the level would never change.

1. The fluid should look & smell new, not burned or been overheated.
2. Yes, they aren't supposed to consume any, but it's nice to be able to check.
3. If there is no dipstick, how do you fill after draining?

The engineers probably didn't make it possible.

I believe I read it somewhere online, but I may have mixed it up with the turbo having a 50K longevity. I was new to all of this at that time, so I maybe I was confused.

It's engineered much like a manual tranny, no dipstick, and there is an inspection/fill hole to check fluid level. Like a manual tranny you won't consume very much if any during normal use. During a fluid change you fill the tranny on level ground until fluid starts to drip out the inspection/fill hole as you approach the recommended fill capacity.
