    I thought the same way. But after never seeing any real wear and tear other than a failed thrust washer........ It's not like the belt slips when you're not moving. I haven't noticed a lot of noticeable wear on the 2 I've torn apart. Keep the oil clean and at the proper level and you shouldn't have any problems. Until that washer craps out just after warranty is up.

    The mention of acclerated wear in cold conditions makes me wonder if a stick-on heating element might be a worthwhile mod for northern owners.

    Block heater to warm the coolant; trans heater to warm the CVT oil. Warm, happy drivetrain.

    What about a pan heater for the CVT?

    That'd probably be a good idea. And for those with that need more cooling, it seems like you could use a cvt cooler like in the pic that eggman posted on page 5 with 4 ports on it. The 2 flow coolant and the other 2 are cvt fluid, just hook up an auxilary cooler and mount it somewhere in front of the rad. Would be an easy mod.
