    Cool 2019 CVT thread

    Welcome to the cvt thread for 2019. It seems every year there's something new to discuss about what really is a basic component to keeping a cvt running smoothly.

    Take some time to chime in with your cvt plans and strategy. Do you take your cars to a garage or service department? Do you do it yourself? What supplies are your favorites? What fluid, filters and/or tools to you use to get the job done? Be sure to include links to these items so we all can benefit from your experience.

    Seems to be a bit late in the year to start the 2019 thread. Did anyone ever reach a conclusion as to what intervals the two filters should be changed?

    On my quick search of Aliexpress I found what I think to be the cheapest filter/oring/gasket. Not sure if anyone here has tried them.

    Make a two choice poll. 5mt or CVT. hopefully the lurkers will vote as well.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    My Mirage has a CVT. I've driven it 2000 miles so far and it's okay yet haha.
    -Karl B. Had a 2019 Mirage ES 5 speed, swapped it for a 2019 Outlander Sport ES 5 speed. Now have a 2019 Mirage SE CVT as well.

    Sounds reasonable. We are getting pretty close to 2020 after all. I could change that if Dirk wants.

    Hey Dirk, start things off here. What have you done for your CVT? Maintenance and typical operation.

    One fluid change right when I got the car at 45k miles at a Mitsu dealership. I check the color, oem should be a pale green, every 2 weeks. When I hit 75k miles Im getting fresh fluid, ordering that side aux filter online and having a trusted mechanic put it in.

    I really think that with the way you care for yours, you will wind up with the best kept, longest lasting CVT here or anywhere.
