Compass CVT2 Reliability

I'm in the process of buying my wife a 4x2 Compass. She just needs a car and we have enough 4x4's.

My brother is a Honda mechanic and he was concerned with the long term reliability of the CVT2 since it is relatively new. He has done more work on Honda CVT's than their other auto trans. Neither of us are fans of extended warranties, but he even suggested getting an extended warranty since the CVT2 is unproven in the long term.

Anyone have any problems with the CVT2?

BTW, Compass inventories are high in my area. One salesman told me that the Compass is moving slow right now, probably because of the patriot. That's good for Compass buyers.

I haven't seen any problems listed in the forums, only questions about a few inherent differences. I'm just shy of 15K on mine with no problems at all. Here are a few links, maybe they will help answer your question.

I don't normally do extended warranty's either. If you stick the money in the bank that the warranty would cost you're usually better off.

With the CVT being the only transmission for the Trail Rated package I guess I've got some blind faith that they will hold up well otherwise also.

Here's my favorite extended warranty story. My brother is working on a Honda Pilot that threw a rod through the engine block. It' under extended warranty and the owner files a claim with the warranty company. They said they would only pay for the rod and crank and not the block because the owner didn't stop the vehicle soon enough to avoid damaging the block. Now that's a chicken s*** insurance company tactic!
