Default Cvt transmission

My SX4 has the CVT and i'm finally starting to like how it performs. I'm also concerned about the reliabilty of it. I have almost 18k on it. Just wondering what kind of mileage you have on your CVT and what kind of mechanical issues have you had?

Make sure you've had the recall/reflash done to the TCM if your cars applies...
Other than that just drive it. There' isn't a service interval to change the fluid even, just to inspect.....make sure you don't use anything to wipe the dipstick that can leave lint on the stick. In fact, unless there is a leak don't bother checking it.
I've replaced one transmission due to a rattling chain before, other than that even the rental cars at are bagged hard every day seem to stand up...

Could you tell me what the recall for reflash on the TCM was for?

Software update:
Campai gn Notice
Suzuki has received reports of the Check Engine Lamp turning ON (DTC P0721 and/or P0777) and loss
of acceleration or higher than normal engine RPM on certain 2011 Kizashi and 2010 SX4 vehicles
equipped with CVT. The Check Engine Lamp may turn ON if the TCM detects an abnormality in the CVT
pulley ratio. When the Check Engine Lamp turns ON, the transmission may go into fail-safe mode which
may cause the loss of acceleration and/or higher than normal engine RPM.

Under inspection and maintenance of the owners manual for severe service to inspect fluid every 15k. but there is foot note that indicates check or replace as necessary if you usually drive with high speed or high engine rpm.My selling dealer knows its just inspect but that's it note sure if they know about foot note. so i asked the question to the service manager. Am I suppose to wait till fluid gets dirty and by then it's to late the cvt is toast? Will suzuki still warranty due to not changing fluid? That got him thinking. He said he would have to get back to me. He was going to call the Suzuki rep. He wanted the Suzuki rep to get a definit answer from jatco transmission . I think that is wishful thinking. We will see what happens.
