I'm starting to hear many stories about CVT's easily going past the 200,000 mile mark with no issues. Yet I'm hearing more stories about 8,9 and 10 speed automatics failing well before 100,000 miles. Its to the point if I were looking at new cars, I'd consider certain models with a CVT if I were to buy an automatic.

It was the '81 Mazda in my signature----about as far as one could get from a large GM truck. A couple of months before that photograph, it made a trip to Little Rock (about 1400 miles total) uneventfully.

My brother took an '85 Jetta well past 300k, and his Avalon is over 340k now. Such distances shouldn't be difficult to reach with reasonable maintenance and a few repairs, barring major design flaws.

Typical BITOG maintenance history. Never use the same oil twice.

I think you’ve hit on something. The different brands use different detergent formulas. What the first oil leaves behind, the second oil takes away. Or maybe the eighth oil.

So far on my 18 Grand Caravan I have used Napa Durablend, Havoline ProDs and now Valvoline Daily Blend. It has less than 15k and no telling what is going in next. I plan on this one to last my oil list will look like this.

Nice job! But considering reputation CVT has especially in Nissan of that time, is there anything particular you paid attention to? Any driving habits?

Well edyvw I did try to notice the sounds of the car... That did seem to be a strong indicator of potential issues from all the reading I have done. That is why I finally got around to changing the CVT fluid in my car.

Has far as driving habits.... It is hammer down if at all possible man LOL

I seriously drive the car hard if I can... Getting up to 60 mph in a hurry. . Or getting on the interstate and going from 30 mph to 78 mph in a fast manner. The car still runs very well under hard acceleration.

A lot of us actually use the same oil.

My Tacoma in my sig has never had anything but Mobil 1 (I've only varied the particular flavor of M1 a few times; used vanilla M1 for a while, then the old M1 Truck & SUV for a while, then, at about 75,000 miles, I switched to M1-EP, and have stayed with that variety ever since. Only thing I've varied with that is occasionally using the 10W-30 instead of 5W-30 sometimes.

But, I've wondered about the theory you mention. Wondering if it might actually be better for the engine to vary it up.

These days, I'm certainly not opposed to using different oils. Definitely not married to M1; when I had my 2016 WRX, I used PPPP 10W-30 exclusively.

I know that M1-EP is a very good oil, with a significant % of PAO. Am I convinced that it's the best for the money? No. In fact, lately I've been intrigued by many of Gokhan's posts about viscosity modifiers, and certain oils that are able to meet multigrade specs while using VERY little VM - for example, Valvoline Advanced and PPPP come to mind. Certain Amsoil, also.

To be honest... My car actually saw multiple runs consecutively of say Pennzoil Ultra.. . Or Castrol Extended Performance gold bottle 5w30.. Especially the first two years I had the car.

Lately it has been Cam2 Dexos1 Gen 2 full synthetic... And just now the Cam2 SuperproMax 5w30.
