    Retailing Used Cvt's

    Plan to tackle the CVT fluid change soon. I do admit its annoying to need to complete the service so soon. For fun I researched used Mirages 14-19 models, (100-150 mile radius) researched certified models, and paid attention to Mirages being re-sold at Mitsu franchises. In my search I saw none with CVT services above 30k meaning if I could view the carfax and see all services no flush, no nothing. One had a new trans at 90k.

    Will complete the service since the CVT is the weak link.

    Don't expect a mom-pop, or non mitsu dealer to care... what I find interesting a Mitsu dealer doesnt complete the service to retail a used Mirage? Even one owners serviced at the dealer from day 1 into higher mileages do not show transmission services.

    So when you do your cvt service do you think it's now gonna show up when you do a carfax? I hate to burst a bubble but dealers are in business to make money. How would servicing a car before selling it to make it last longer be good for business. All that would be accomplished is money and time spent on a car you'll never make back. Sad but true..... Ideally a dealer would have the full history of every car they sell. But when a dealer buys a car that's been repo'd 8 times, there is a slim chance that's gonna happen. And who knows maybe the cvt was just serviced recently?

    Yeah carfax shows oil changes, brake jobs, etc but no cvt servicing in its records. That's why I would only buy used under 50k miles and get the cvt serviced immediately.
