So I decided to ring up my local Dealer Service Department about this TSB as the new to me CVT in my recently acquired el cheapo beater "hangs up" when coming to a stop. I can put it in neutral and feel the car relax, and if I wait long enough the CVT will eventually do it itself, but I hate the feeling of it.
The service manager was very polite and said he knew exactly which TSB I was referring to when I explained it all to him, and he took my VIN and said that it would be best to just bring it in so "they could see what it was doing" and then go from there. I said, well I had considered having the CVT Fluid Change done anyway, so could you price that service to me. And he went into a full vocal vomit of how they don't recommend changing the CVT Fluid and how its a lifetime fill and blah blah blah. Call went from good to bad in seconds.
