Mine is a 2015 found good price on 2020 cvt. Yep I serviced mine myself changing outside filter and main filter. I noticed here maybe year ago I started getting vibrations drivers side tire. I knew my suspension was fine zero issue with vibration or pulling in another direction at steering wheel.
Now I can feel vibration in bottom area of floor board really good. Here 2 months ago traction off light, abs another traction light on. Dropped pan changed both filters fresh oil. Boom! It all went away and...now it's back. Limp mode at times In and out. Good thing is my job is only 10 miles away vs. my old commute 70 miles.
When does it vibrate? Sure it’s not just a bad cv axle, they can vibrate under load when the inner joint wears out. Abs/brake lights can be anything. Not usually a cvt problem. Don’t know unless you checked for codes.
Then I decided to pull codes and it was 4 codes p103, and 3 other codes have them written down at home. So Exactly what you have discussed in another thread. Brake lights! 2 brake lights were out, 3rd top worked. Changed light bulbs and checked my negative battery post. Seemed good but I put a cooper sleeve on for better connection. Still had slight vibration. So Changed wheel hub bearing.
Unbelievable a light bulb caused the codes.
I'm sure my cvt was going to grenade soon. Did I need to replace it maybe not. But it shifts like brand new vibrations are gone!
Happened to run across this listing for a external cooler & filter that replaces the nearly useless OEM stack cooler in the Mirage. If you used this kit you would have 3 filters total (2 internal & 1 external) and a much better transmission cooling system.
I'm not vouching for the legitimacy of this website but at least it provides a solution to the CVT7's weak point (CVT's really don't do well with high temps and dirty fluid). Anyways, just passing it along.
