Has anyone had great luck with the CVT transmissions? I do hard miles everyday to make deliveries. I changed the fluid every 30k or so. Does not burn one drop of oil. Is there any people here with high mileage Outlanders?

Plenty out there. Hard accellerations can cook the oil, and then you have problems. But regular oil changes will keep that at bay.

A good indicator of condition is the oil degredation counter. A scantool can read this in the trans ecu. Every time the oil gets too hot it increases the value. I have seen cars with 70000kms with a count of 4. I have seen others with a count of 49000 at 56000kms.

What engine does yours have?

I have the 2.4 front wheel drive model. I was going to get awd but did not want to strain the transmission. I drive a little over 200 miles a day
