    Hello! I'm having the same issue. My Mirage is a 2014 model. The "D", "N" and "R" started blinking. I took it to the Company garage. They said they updated the electronic system...1 week later it started again like 3 times and the fourth time, the check engine lamp lighted...It's been 1 week since I dropped my car...they are saying that they are testing...they said it could be the whole cvt..I dunno it doesn't make sense, I've only ride like 45.000 km and I did all my check-ups on time...Any idea how much it will cost to replace the cvt? I no longer have warranty, it expired after 3 years ((

    Welcome to the forum Vanessa. The cost of a replacement CVT is very expensive. Probably more than €3000.00. If the CVT has never had a fluid and filter change I would start there. There are actually 2 filters. A upper cartridge filter and lower pan filter. It is also critical that the proper CVT fluid is used also. If you do a search on here you will find some helpful threads with information to tell the mechanics. Again, welcome aboard the forum!

    Oddly enough all 3 of our cvt failures occured not long after the cvt fluid was replaced. Normally I'd blame the guy who did it but I used fluid that met the proper spec and double checked the level, hot and cold. I replaced the fluid in the first 2 cause it was black, because damage was already done and it contaminated the fluid. They crapped out within weeks. The third was replaced just because it was due.

    Any thoughts on using Mitsubishi CVT fluid?

    Thought about it, I didn't change the cvt fluid til 200k kms on the highest mileage car. It crapped out 100k kms after that. This latest car had dark fluid(mitsubishi fluid) well before that and was likely making noise at that time as well and I just wasn't told about it. (Because it's not their car...) I'm still pretty doubtful that a different fluid would have prevented one bearing from crapping out. Though Mitsubishi will likely argue differently I'm sure. For those doing their own service though, save yourself a ton of headaches and just use the crap from the dealership I guess. And if you service your own car(cvt fluid changes), good luck getting any warranty coverage period for the cvt. It says in the manual to either get the dealer or a shop to service cvt.
