CVT is used by the latest high performance vehicles due to the smooth driving experience it provides. In this video we will explore the inner workings of Continuously variable transmission including that of a Reverse gear.

      Cvt transmission is the WORST thing that ever happen to the motor vehicle industry. The regular AT transmission is 1000 times more reliable.

      Why do cvt suck?

      about 11 days ago

      Wow! As someone who went to automotive school and learned all about the traditional automotive transmission before this was a thing. I learned a lot in this video. In fact, this style transmission seems to be a lot simpler to understand once taken apart than a traditional transmission. Now, I just need a comprehensive explanation of how the Koenigsegg drivetrain works... without a transmission.

      Because of this channel and Thomas Schwenke. I just learned how the Automatic Transmission, and the CVT both work. Along with how they shift so seamlessly.

      Nice video but quit putting new frick'n ads while it's still running... take the 5 seconds at the end for your stuff... ie. is there a #4 at 4:29 for disadvantages?

      Does it mean I can drive long distances on Reverse?

      It's anything but a smooth ride once the cvt transmission starts having issues and for the Nissan Altima it's horrible. Will never buy another car with a cvt trans!

      So it feels smooth and seamless when you're driving it at first but it's high wear and is expensive to replace. That sounds like a modern car to me.

      Leave the automatic transmission the way it is. Whoever thought this up was trying to fix something that isn't broken.

      I would take a wet DCT ( Wet dual clutch transmission) anyday instead of CVT. I hope they become mainstream in the future.

      Who invented cvt?

      I think CVT still needs a little more engineering. My cars feel as if the clutch is slipping all of the time. Sometimes I get on the highway and the rev is at 5k and the car is not increasing or decreasing speed. I have to let the gas pedal off a little bit for the pulleys to extend into a higher ratio so that the rpms can decrease. Its annoying in all CVTs. Maybe they can make CVTs smarter and adjust the pulleys based on engine rpms. or use car sensors to detect driving conditions and adjust the transmission like so. I think the hardware works great, but it needs a little bit of software manipulation to make it work excellent.

      Well that’s the purpose of innovation. CVTs can and will constantly be improved on.

      Why doesn't the car just stay at 5-6K RPM and then manipulate the CVT? I don't understand why the engine derevs down to 2-3K RPM. Wouldn't it be better to keep it at higher RPMs where the engine makes the most HP?

      These transmissions go out so often. I’ve fried two Nissans cvt

      On NISSAN yes. But not on TOYOTA CVTs that are reliable.

      If cvt is more fuel efficient thats all ai care about.

      It is, except in light traffic (proceeding slowly but steadily) where with a CVT you are locked with the preset rpm treshold the manufacturer specified for the car (usually 2000-2500 for benzine) and with a manual you can go as low as 1000/1500 by using the right gear. But yeah in general CVT is more economic in terms of fuel

      now just see what happens with the arrangement when the right side cone of the input is moved to the right
      *moves to the left*

      So you mean to say whatever speed is achieved while going forward can be achieved in reverse also ?
