According to the overseas press, the Japanese have started to decline the quality of the famous eCVT transmissions.
They are mounted on the Toyota Hybrid range whether it is called Yaris, Prius or even Lexus, and the reputation of these transmissions began to be questioned.
There are some technical problems with these eCVT boxes with continuous variation that completely gave way to cars with a few km, which is common at Nissan but not with Toyota Hybrid models.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CVT BOX HAS PROBLEMS?
This question can best be answered by the specialists from Reparatii Boxii Automate Bucuresti, who say that every time a component fails in an eCVT box, the damage inside is much greater than in a classic box with a converter.
When the chain yields, it destroys the pulleys on which it goes, the repair costs being of the order of several thousand euros .
The oil found in an eCVT box is special and if it is not changed regularly it will weaken the resistance of the chain / belt when the whole box is completely destroyed.
In Romania, more and more cars with CVT transmissions have started to be sold, and their maintenance is completely different from that of a traditional gearbox, but the yield rate of an eCVT gearbox is MUCH HIGHER than that of a transmission with couple.
Now we see that the CVT transmissions produced by Toyota K110 and K313 have started to be problematic in use, transmissions that equip the CH-R, Yaris, Corolla, RAV4 and Lexus range.
