Wow, folks act like CVT's are something new.

My wife's Saturn Vue has one. Four years old, no issues (other than better gas mileage than a manual transmission!).

It's new to Jeep and new to us, so that does make it something new.

So just the fluid and filter change? The belt never needs replacing?

I'm considering one with the CVT(maybe CVT2) to make commuting easier.

They really are CVT2's, I'm just too lazy to type the "2". I have been told since my early investigations on the Caliber that belts are not adjustable or replaceable, that it's time for a new transmission if they ever slip. Also back in the early days I was told that they are not rebuildable but the "Gears Magazine" that I have linked to in some of my information about CVT2's is a rebuilders magazine. So things do change but there is no service interval that calls out any adjustment or replacing the belt.
