Get the standard auto - reasons have been done to death just search them up.

Long term, torque converter auto seems best, though cvt has made huge gains it seems.
Only some drive anywhere near normally so do try one. Personally I don't like driving them, but many won't care, or know.

What you will most likely find is that people listing them are too lazy to put the correct transmission type. Generally people shy away from cvts as well so sellers may be deliberately misleading in their ads too. Bro, the car is automatic - means bro, its got that crap trans that nobody wants.

do you mean know one wants an auto, you'd be wrong on that.

yes i would say a lot of cvt get sold as auto, as in automatic they are all automatic transmissions so you would need to know what the transmission look like when they are a cvt , often close look on the housing will reveal they run a belt inside them = cvt. but not always i just noticed it from the pictures i seen from cvt .

Express--the Toyota fielder was a NORMAL automatic gearbox up till 2006
2006 is a year where you have some old shape and some new shape feilders. The old shape will be normal transmission the new shape will be CVT
Then they are all CVT transmission in 2007
I haven't had any issues with CVT transmissions in Feilders but the tow rating is all but non existant.-flip side is that the fuel economy is improved.

Thank you all for your input. Always good to get others expert advice or opinions. I realize that the subject has been discussed but for those of us whom come on the message board infrequently its good to know people will still take the time to respond. Have a great day.
