Disadvantages of the XA-10LN gearbox

  • The service life of the CVT strongly depends on the frequency of oil changes, the more often the better;
  • Dirty lubricant gets into the bearings and causes a terrible noise in the automatic transmission under load;
  • Also, this transmission is afraid of overheating due to slipping and driving in traffic jams;
  • A number of car owners with such a gearbox have encountered leaking drive seals.
