Poor CVT Reliability

ReviewThe problem is that the CVT transmission is a sealed, closed design and can't be rebuilt or fixed. A replacement transmission costs about $8000 installed. Not worth keeping out of warranty.
Best FeaturesGreat fun to drive, nice interior.
Worst FeaturesPeeling switches make the car age too fast - looks sloppy. Too many major risks in ownership out of warranty: CVT, turbo failure, sludge. Not a car to own after 4 years old.
