CVT limitation

Post by ayau »

Honda has a 1,500 lbs towing capacity for the 2017+ CRV. Is CVT reliability a concern for the CRV just like it is for the CVT Civics when increasing torque?

I'm not aware of any differences between the transmissions.

In that case, shouldn't CR-V torque limiter set with 250 nm max torque in mind instead of 260-280 nm in +6 PSI CR-V CVT calibration?

You'd have to ask Honda that question. I would not tow with a CVT without an transmission cooler.
