What is your starting point for the 10 years? They have been selling CVT's since 2001 (Civic Hybrid).I hope, and expect, Honda's CVTs to be better. Still, I am adopting a wait and see attitude wrt CVTs. As in, wait at least ten years, to see what sort of failure modes they show.
What if you are (say) driving a 15 year old car worth $3000, with a failing CVT, which can't be repaired, but only replaced, and they want $4000 to do so. Keeping an eye on Nissan for this scenario to occur on a regular (?) basis.... But I think I'd rather drive a newer car and risk having to buy a new transmission than drive an older car.
