How is the 10 speed working for the Odyssey and the 1.5T in the Civic?
For the 10-speed AT, does the planetary gear set evoke solid reliability 10 years down the road? Sounds like the CVT in the 1.5T does have a lower torque capacity.
According to Sladek, the initial torque capacity is 275 lb-ft, with enough headroom built into the design to accommodate the expected spread from the new Odyssey throughout the Honda and Acura product lineups. While initial applications will be front-drive only, it’s safe to assume that a power takeoff can be added for all-wheel drive in the future.
For the turbocharged engine, it seems the Honda's can be proved to be reliable.
The turbo on the car is made by MHI. Their journal bearing turbos have been known to be very reliable...I've run a couple over 200k that still performed.
