CVT Transmission oil changes.
Thought I would start posting in the correct thread with some information I have gleaned regarding CVT Transmission oil changes.
I have contacted 2 Nissan Service departments here on the Gold Coast about changing out the CVT fluid as part of the capped price 120,000kms service @ $555.10.
The service manual states clearly:
Page M-46 ALL VEHICLES
Item 9 -“Replace CVT fluid at 100,000km”
Page M-54 ALL VEHICLES
Item 7 -“Replace Hyper-CVT fluid at 120,000km”
The first dealer at Robina told me 'CVT Fluid is not a service item on your vehicle and is not replaced. The service book you have is a generic book that covers all Nissan models worldwide.
As you will see there are instructions under a number of headings including Diesel Engines, LPG Engines, 4WD and Commercial Vehicles which also do not apply to your vehicle.'
The second dealer at Southport told me 'The cvt oil counter will be checked as part of the service
The cvt oil is not replaced as a part of the service. Yes the vehicle is under the capped price service
The total of the service is $555.00'
He went on to further say 'We can replace the cvt oil if you like. The cost would be $450.00 using the NS-2 fluid gen Nissan fluid, and check through consult'
He confirmed this was for the replacement only not a flush.
Wow, I wonder what you pay for a full flush!
I am thinking I will get the replacement fluid done and get the 120,000 service done as soon as I can afford it.
Just a shame it's in the book as being a replacement item, but not covered by the capped price ;-)
I hope this helps out.
