Honestly I'd still rather have a dry dual clutch tranny over a CVT. CVTs still seems way more fragile in comparison, since you're dealing with a belt sliding around. And theoretically Ford's PowerShift transmission is a zero maintenance system... or so they say.

Gives me an idea for a question...im going to hit up Fswerks on facebook and see if they have done any tinkering with a powershift fiesta.
