Good question. I don't really understand how that works. Do I just take it to the dealership and ask them to check? How much does that cost to have them check it?
Just for grins...
This is from a post that I submitted on 07/22/10:
Today I had my MO at the dealer for warranty work. While they were replacing the rear hub bearing I asked that they run a Consult-II diagnostic on the CVT to determine the CVTF Deterioration Date.
The mechanic claimed he had never heard of the CVTF Deterioration Date and usually tells customers to replace the fluid at 60,000 miles. When he brought the print-out to me in the customer waiting room he admitted he had no idea what it represented nor what it meant. It was amusing to hear how quiet the waiting room became as I proceeded to tell him what the number was and how it implied his 60,000 mile change interval was not accurate.
My MO is 4 years, 11 months old and has 46,699 miles on the odometer. The CVTF Deterioration Date is: 9255 , well short of the 210,000 that Nissan recommends as the change point.
Assuming a linear progression my CVT fluid should be good for another 1,012,921 miles and 111 years. I figure I'll split the difference and change it at 506K sometime in 2066. What do you think, Eric. L, is that achievable?
