CVT longevity

I love my new Civic Touring. The ride is smooth and quiet. The technology and the infotainment versatility is so great.

The more I read about the CVT transmission, the more I wonder if I actually bought the right car. From what I read, it is inevitable that at about 50 K miles I will be hit with a $5-6 thousand charge for a new CVT. I rationalize by thinking that this was old time CVTs and these new 2016 CVTs have been perfected especially when combined with a turbo. Please someone with expertise tell me what kind of longevity I can expect. My 2002 Passat had 206,000 miles on it and was still in good shape. I do not regret my purchase EXCEPT if my Civic Touring days are numbered.
Thank you.
