Just purchased a 2019 LX. First car with CVT transmission.I noticed yesterday at highway speed of about 65 mph the rpms were fluctuating about 3 hundred I could see it on the RPM gauge and feel it. I put it in cruise control and it did the same thing. Is this normal for a CVT transmission? It's very annoying. I'm going to call the Dealership Monday but was looking for opinions on this here on the forum.

Sure, that's exactly what a continuous variable transmission does. As the load on the vehicle changes so does the transmission ratio. It's programmed to optimize the engine's output and efficiency.

No wind? No other cars near you changing the wind load?
There may have been a little wind but I wouldn't think enough to cause what was happening. The RPM fluctuations were somewhat slow and steady up and down with with the same intervals. I have never owned a vehicle that did this and I've owned a lot of new vehicles. I called the Dealer today and our sales guy said he never heard of this before. I'm going to wait until I duplicate this happening a few times and video tape it before I take it into the Dealer.

The CVT in my 2014 Civic doesn’t do that on flat freeway unless it’s really windy.

Mine fluctuated allot whe I first bought it, after 22, 000 miles it still does it on minor inclines. It's also not as harsh of fluctuation as whe it was brand new.
