That's a mischaracterization, IMO, simply because they weren't your typical lazy, unsubstantiated statements. You were presented with a logical argument on each point in the first post, including the source of the reliability data. I've come to the same conclusion independently - if you doubt it, then try searching for yourself.
Mischaracterization! Hmm. The data is still "your" personal data, and quite frankly, heavily opinionated (emotional).
I have no problem with your opinions, everyone has one. Yours is as interesting as many others, but not scientific.
As for searching myself, why? I like the CVT. I don't mind shift points, it's not an electric car.
