I bought my 17 Civic hatch EXT just over 3 years ago with 9 miles. I always do my maintenance on the vehicle, at first I would take it to the dealership for an oil change but I always get different prices so I now do everything. I'm now at 67k miles, I did change the CVT fluid at 48k. Now I'm thinking of doing maintenance on the CVT every 25k so the next one would be at 75k.
I'm wondering if anybody has more miles and if so, is your CVT still going strong?

if anybody wonders if I've encountered any issues from factory. I actually had 1 issue, it was the wiring in the engine bay. Honda decided to use some chemicals on their wires which attracts rodents??‍♂. My wires ended up getting chewed up and every light was on and I was left without power steering. That was around $450 to fix but they relocated the wires so they couldn't get to it, hopefully it doesn't happen again.

I am almost 1 year and 6 months into my ownership with my CVT '17 sport hatch. As of yesterday i'm at 64,271 miles. Replaced my transmission fluid at 45k miles and performed regular synthetic oil changes every 5,000 miles. 80% highway driving 20% city. I've been on stage 2 KTuner for almost a full year now with no issues as well. Only major replacements I've done are new rear shocks and a new windshield.

I'm at 37,xxx miles with my '16 touring. I'm usually due for an oil change every 5-6k miles. I had the transmission fluid changed at 36k miles. Knocking on wood, it's been holding up well.

7.8k, owned since Sept. I ride year long so it stays fairly low. Only builds up really when winter hits.

Think around 48-49k? Haven't really checked lately since I'm not driving as much.


I probably don't have more miles than some but I definitely have more power on it than most and stress it more since I do actually race, track and drag the car.

293whp/257wtq.

got it 11/2016. 2017 Hatchback EX-L navi. 52k. still on original rotors pads, but i think i may change it sooner than later. they work, pads still 60% or so.

navi screen is still possessed by demons. still randomly goes to home screen and beeps. here and there the lights turn on, says ebrak does not work ( it works),etc.

at some point im upgrading to the pilot. ideally black edition.

I'm creeping into 42k in about 3 years and have had zero issues with the transmission. When I had the dual tune it was a little more responsive but it wasn't an issue. Replaced the fluid as recommended and been to the track a couple times even. Just wish it could handle more torque.

What all have you done to get that kind of power? I’m running the +6 PSI w/ Flexfuel tune and a 27WON CAI. Making around 265hp

Got my 18 sport hatch 11/11/17, 21psi ktuner since February 19, just south of 27k on the clock. No issues here, so far just mods and regular oil changes around every 6-8k (about 15% on the oil life meter) and am yet to do a cvt fluid change

Mine is two years old and has 25k miles on it, everything is stock and CVT is still doing a great job, it's a very smooth transmission.

I only have some kind of stuttering when I change from Drive into Reverse gear and the other way around. I can feel the gentle stuttering. When the engine is cold and I'm maneuvering out of a tight parking spot. But I assume that this is normal with the CVT?

I wonder why some of you guys changed the CVT fluid so late. As long as I'm having warranty I do it like it's reccomended in the owners manual, which means every two years or at the maximum of 25k miles.
