Looking for a diesel car and saw on the Ford's web page that Focus fitted
with 1.6 liter TDCi engine now is available with CVT transmission. My
current Focus wagon (2001, 1.6 liter) has auto tranny and it is quite smooth
(knock on wood!). I know that the tranny in my wagon is made by Mazda and am
wondering who makes this CVT tranny? Is it reliable? How is the shift? I
have not had a chance to test drive the car because the dealer does not have
a demo car in this configuration. I would appreciate very much if you share
your opinion with me..Thanks.
