When y’all doing your first change? Our 18 is close to 15K. Thanks.

I'm waiting on the MM; I don't think anybody has mentioned the MM calling for it yet.
Either follow the MM.

I'm being conservative and trying for the first change around 20k miles. Just to get some of the break in metal pieces out.

The rear diff had some metal on it and I expect the transmission to be no different.

The MM came on at just over 50,000 on my 2016 and I will change it at the next oil change. MM has not come on for the differential. Most of my miles are in straight interstates. The MM is there so people don't do changes for no reason and so the dealers won't rip you off,

Hey Osbornk! I remember you from the Kia Optima forum. I was "Ozzie" My wife got rid of her 2010 CR-V for a 2018 touring CR-V in August. I traded the Optima for a 2018 Avalon Hybrid in Feb 2018. Looks like you've been active here. Nice to "see " you again.

Good to "see" you again. I drove my Kia Optima for just over 75,000 miles with no problems. Other than oil and filter changes, I only had to put brake pads on it just before I traded it. It had one warranty visit for a rattling shock early on. We traded the car only because of the low front bumper height we kept scraping here in the mountains. That is why we got the CRV that has been flawless in 52,000 miles. They get about the same mileage and I miss the heated steering wheel. I have a Miata for my fun car.

Does anyone know if the CVT fluid change can be DIY? I understand there is no dipstick.
There is a fill hole that dribbles fluid when the CVT is properly refilled. (Just like on many manual transmissions)

It really IS quite easy.

The Kia turbo was like a tank at 85K. Not sure that will be the case here unfortunately. Talk to you later.

My grandson is driving an old CRV with nearly 230,000 miles on it and my niece has almost 200,000 on her 2nd CRV (she traded the last one at 170,000 but plans on keeping this one til it dies.).

Yeah but that was before they put a turbo on a 1.5L engine

I did my first CVT fluid change in my 2014 Civic at 41k miles. It was very easy to DYI. I’m at 70k miles now and will do a second fluid change at 80k miles. The MM didn’t pop up until around 50-55k miles but I’m sticking with 40k mile intervals.
