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.

I have 105k on my 2011 Compass on original cvt fluid and I haven't had any issues. Bought the Jeep with 82 miles on it.

I've done research on this. Many complain of tyrant troubles at 75000 miles. Seems the fix is in the engine not the tyranny. They claim they changed the spark plugs to Bosch platinum plug or the quantums. This solved the tyranny issues.

sometimes a engine miss can feel like a transmisison slipping, my 92 dakota had a engine miss and confused the hell out of me i had even brought it to a transmision shop that said it was transmission and it was gonna be about 2500 bucks.. i cried, figured it was due for tune up anyway , did so and never had an issue after.. and this was a mechanical transmission so nothing interlinked like newer..
