2010 Nissan Murano CVT transmission fluid change

Asked by Jan 02, 2015 at 10:32 PM about the 2010 Nissan Murano SL AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've got a 2010 Nissan Murano with 69,000 miles. It hasn't ever had the CVT
transmission fluid changed.  I just had transfer case and differential fluids changed and
the Nissan dealership service technician said the CVT transmission fluid should be
changed every 30,000 miles.  They want $280 to do it.  The repair manual says "to
inspect it" every 30,000 and that "Premium" maintenance (which is recommended, but
not required) lists it.  Is this really necessary?  I've got no reason to believe the
transmission is having issues.

According to the Nissan Maintenance Schedule, it says to Inspect the CVT fluid every 30k miles, NOT replace. Personally, I think the Nissan Tech is following this premium schedule to get more $$ out of you! AND...he told you this just b/c one of the schedules says so and not b/c the CVT fluid is dirty, etc..

So, I just pulled up the dealer's service department website and they have 3 levels of service for 60,000 (same as 30,000) service. Standard, Dealer Recommended, and Dealer Premium. Change CVT fluid is NOT listed under standard or "Dealer Recommended". It is only listed under "Dealer Premium". I don't really understand what "premium" is all about. I'd think that if the CVT fluid being changed was a requirement for honoring the 120,000 mile warranty on the CVT that it would be standard or at least recommended.

I would have it changed if you plan on keep the car for a couple more years.

Based on my experience with cvt transmissions I would change it every 60,000 miles. I change mine every 30,000
