Default What Exactly Is CVT Transmission?

hey guys, sorry this is not maxima related but just curious, my parents added a new car to the family its a 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS, its pretty freaking sweet and rides awesome, they got it mainly for daily driving because of the 4 banger engine. Anyways the car brings a CVT transmssion, ive seen it here on maximas 07 and up, but i never paid attention to it considering i had a 2006. So can someone please explain to me what a cvt transmission is and the pro's and cons about it, again im just curious

The biggest thing is that it doesn't shift. It has far less oving parts,so it's more reliable.

Are you certain about the "Oving" parts? I heard something entirely different.

That's one of the best vids on CVT I've seen so far.

I believe nissan's CVTs are a belt-chain combo.
