    This time be sure to watch the entire video series.

    But only if you're getting paid for watching Youtube videos.

    Well, I can't recall what I did to this car in the end. It's running fine right now at 264,500km/164,000miles. Just took it for a drive and it pulls hard, accelerates better than my own. The 17' I was having issues with a little while ago is still running fine too. It's been a while since I've had to replace an entire cvt.

    No news is good news.
    I did have a driver of a different 2015 with around 250,000km tell me the shift indicator was flashing twice last week. Didn't notice any drive ability problems. I just did a drain and refill this morning as the fluid was getting dark. It's been getting up to 31c/88F here lately. That's too hot, I'm going back to the bush in 3 weeks where the high was 21c/69F lol.

    Fummins... Have you ever attempted to monitor the CVT fluid temp with a scan tool?

    Yeah when checking fluid level. It took a long time to get them up to temp driving under 40mph. Leaving it in "B" or S or whatever that other mode is seemed to heat things up quickly though.

    I'm asking about monitoring the temp because the issue came up in this thread Dirk posted last week. I figured if anyone had seen fluid running hot in these things, it would possibly be one of your cars.
