After driving my CVT 15 Civic LX for a nice 2 hours with a high pressure system nicely rolling in, Ive decided to hold out on an ILX or 5 speed until theres more info on cvt. at the end of the day a car that is taken care of is going to take care of you so if you're rough on it and you hit it hard over 5000 rpm then you're going to have more belt wear and higher chances of having a transmission issue. If you if you keep it around 4500 RPM when passing and try not to hit it to off try to hit it too hard too often especially during extreme cold/heat, then you should be good for 15 years. Changing the fluid/filter on cvt seems to help alot too according to high mileage civic owners.
