    When I talked to a few Mitsu dealers they won't touch the little filter on the side or pull the pan. I was abolished that they'd drain out just a little bit, refill it, reset the sensor (that's the big deal they made about it) and charge you rape for it. Forget that.

    Granted, I have the fancy shop tool so I reset the degradation sensor myself but I believe Fummins said he changes the fluid and doesn't give a damn about the sensor and it's been fine.

    Correct, zero $hits given about reseting the fluid deteriation in the confuser. The car doesn't seem to care either. Like you, I have the ability to do it but I would rather watch people lineup at costco for hours.

    Hahahahahaha when I was at the dealer someone else was getting the trans serviced. The guy had zero idea how cars work so the service writer made a huge deal about how only the dealer can reset the computer and all this ****. Damn liars! Liars I tell ya!

    Well, well, well......I called AAMCO and guess what? They do OEM fluid change, side filter change, and drop the pan to the check magnets and clean for $250! Mitsu service center can take a hike from now own!

    Good find Dirk!

    I still like my manual. It cost me 2 quarts of manual transmission fluid (approximately 1.6 quarts needed). No filters to replace and no parts to remove except the two plugs (drain hole & fill hole) I like simple & cheap.

    Nice find!

    Keep looking Dirk and I'm sure you'll find a small, professional shop that can provide even better service at a competitive price.

    Though I don't have a CVT I'm still interested in how they hold up.
    Speck was a 2015 Mirage ES.

    Replaced with a 2022 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor using the insurance payout & company Green Car incentive. No gas price anxiety, itís charged at home for around $4 - even less with solar. No oil or oil filter changes. No tune-ups - no spark plugs, engine air filters or squeaky snorkels. No rattly exhaust or emissions controls. No alternator, accessory belt, or timing chain. No piston slap or overpriced CVT. The benefits go on & on.

    Efficiency pays.

    While still expensive, it costs less than paying Mitsu dealer for parts and service. They wanted like $45 I think for that little side filter! I bought it from the Nissan dealer for 14 bucks.

    Nice find. What Nissan models came with the same cvt filter?

    The Nissan Versa Note for sure. Uses the same CVT-7 transmission. I believe the regular Versa, the Kicks, and something else use the same trans as well but I'm not 100% sure. I actually found the Jatco part number somewhere on this forum and went in to the local Nissan dealer and asked for it as well as the o-ring. I'll try to remember to post up the Nissan part numbers here later today.
