Understanding the do's and don'ts of a CVT transmission requires understanding how the transmission works. There are two common types on the market, including traditional CVTs with torque converters, as well as eCVTs such as that used on the Lexus CT200h in this video. Some practices to avoid include putting the car in neutral when coming to a stop, holding yourself on a hill using throttle (if the system is clutch based), coasting in neutral, neutral dropping the vehicle for a launch, changing directions (from D to R) while the vehicle is still moving, and inching forward (if the system is clutch based).
