Does anyone have any info on the reliability of the Civic Hybrid CVT
transmission. The pastor of our church apparently has had problems with the
transmission on his Civic for some time until it packed up at around 60k
miles. The dealer quoted a price of $5,000 to replace it -- although they
were checking to see if Honda would replace it without charge.
www.greenhybrid.com ...Is usually a good source of info, I know there is
some info about the CVT trans in there, I know some of the HCH I (pre 2006),
had some issues.....but, the site does not appear to be working
today....BTW, I am thinking I saw the $2,600-$3,000 figure for replacement
somewhere, $5,000 seems way too high.
there's nothing much wrong with cvt transmission. it's used extensively
for automatic transmission by many manufacturers in every market except
north america and is known to be both reliable and fuel efficient.
