CVT Fluid Change

MY 2010 Pat has 73000 on it. I know the manual does not call for a fluid and filter change until 10 years or 120K. What are others doing? Any idea on costs? Mine is staring to feel like it's slipping a bit under acceleration at slower speeds and I am wondering if the fluid is getting dirty.

Thanks.

Josh

The manual currently suggests replacing the fluid at 120,000 miles or at 60,000 if the following applies: "Change automatic transmission fluid and filter if using your vehicle for any of the following: police, taxi, fleet, or frequent trailer towing. (CVT only)." Personally, I'm going to have mine changed at 60K and not worry about it any more.

So I had the fluid, and I am guessing filter, replaced at the dealership. Not cheap, $300 or so, and the CVT is still a bit jerky, more so than it was when the Jeep was new, has 74K on it now. Any ideas? I hear these CVT's are total junk, and then talk to people that say they are rock solid.
