Do you have a big, bright red tattoo on your forehead that says MORON? If not, you should. What do you thing CVT stands for Twinkie? If you said anything other than Constantly Variable Transmission... Well it wouldn't surprise me if you said something else.

Yes I "thing" that it does have only one speed. Better yet I know so because when I drove it I had foot to the gas from 0-75 and there wasnt a single shift. The RPM didnt go over 4500 a single second.

1-speed cvt w/OD

A continuously variable transmission (CVT - also known as electronic CVT or eCVT) eliminates the gearing, and the shifting between gears, of a traditional transmission. Power from the engine is transmitted by a drive belt system connecting two conical pulleys. As the driver operates the throttle, the belts slide up and down the pulleys, creating a continuously variable gear ratio that is proper for the moment. The operation is seamless, with no upshifts or downshifts.

Your text book answer just proved you wrong. The key words are "continuously variable gear ratio". That in terms you can understand equals "lots of speeds", not just one. MORON!

Cars.com is not a valid sight for research. Give us a collective break. Show me some Honda literature that calls it a one-speed. Better yet, read these and tell us where they're called one-speeds.

Thank you. I was so pissed at the little twit when I typed that I obviously wasn't paying attention.

If anything, CVTs are million-speeds. 1 speed im guessing is just the simple way cars.com chose to classify it.

Wow! I've heard of these transmissions before, but never knew how much it worked or anything about it in detail. Is it rare or I'm just unfamiliar with it?

Also, for pure curiosity, what's the generalization on them? How often do they break down compared to regular automatic/manual transmissions? Because it sounds as if they are more comfortable than the regular transmissions.
