You are correct Hank :)

Not thinking of that ;-)

I won't be happy till I get another 50,000 kms out of those injectors that were so much work for me to change :roll:

I think I'd rather the Suzy Grand vitara at nearly 1/2 the price, might be "old technology" but ot works

I think some models have CVT transmission and I dont believe they have been perfected yet.

The CRV technology is not new only the electronics that control them. It is a well proven drive system from decades ago for machinery that needed speed control. Some of the machinery that was quite old when I did my apprenticeship in the early 70's used PIV gearboxes and was much more reliable than the latest speed control technology of the time. CRV technology is derived from PIV (positively infinitely variable) gearbox technology, in many applications these gearboxes transmit much more torque than a vehicle.

Yes I remember the Reeves drive which is the same principle but the drive is belt not a steel belt like the CVT. I have a Honda HRV and at the time I never knew about CVT gearboxes in cars. There are mixed reviews on line about them and they need constant servicing oil change ever 30,000klm
They now seem to be common in small cars and more and more of them are being fitted proberbly will find them popping up in the bigger cars soon. I see the Subaru have them in the Forester and Outback and they are a bigger car.
