Got the opportunity to own & drive the Mazda Protege 2002, Automatic Gears transmission model, in Washington DC for 3 years. Am inclined to buy a similar one in Delhi and the NHC CVT seems to be the only available option, which I understand is not very popular. Can you please advise if :
(a) There are any specific problems experienced ?
(b) Any effect on FE compared to the NHC GXI ?

Thanks,
AshokS

Not really my niece, nephew and sister drive the CVT and we have found it reliable enough to order one for our mom too.

Have had no problems with my CVT whatsover. The transmission does pull out some amount of power from the car but its perfect for city driving.

On the FE front, i have a manual GXi in pune which delivers 11kmpl and my CVT delivers 9kmpl in bombay. Which is pretty good for an auto trans.

Go for it if your gonna use it in hardcore city driving,if you have a lot of highway runs then i wouldnt suggest it coz its a lil underpowered to take that extra edge of overtaking on highways.

Many thanks indeed, Sahil, for those comparative figures which are illuminating indeed, and all others for the valuable inputs !
