I tried to find this on the forum. Does the CVT belt travel in CVT fluid or operate dry? Thanks for the answer in advance.

Thank you

That was my assumption but I use to have a Suzuki Burgman 650 ECVT that had a steel link rubber core belt that was totally dry. I appreciate the confirmation of what I thought would have to be a full lubricated system.

I was very lightly accelerating the other night going about 20. My car was jerking like a stick shift with the clutch being let out too quickly. Also, I notice sometimes when I floor the accelerator from a low speed the car jerks and the transmission also squeaks as the car tries to go. HondaTech, have you heard of these issues?

Maybe you're running it in DRY MODE:naughty:

Wow, I like this thread. I always thought belt was rubber. And the CVT fluid keeps the moving parts lubricated, even the steel belt. How cool!

I'm going to bring this up during my first oil change about the weird transmission actions, hopefully they can help me.

Don't wait, imo - discuss with them now. If not enough of a problem to make a separate trip, they're less likely to take it seriously.

That's a good point. I just hate being without my car or having to get a ride. That's the main thing I miss about having an Acura, free loaner car :(

My Honda dealer has a fleet of Odyssey vans and will take customers from and to the dealership while they service your car. It's not as nice as Acura free loaners. However, you can rent a car with the money you saved buying an Accord instead of an Acura. The one time The service department took three days to replace my 2000 Accord transmission, under an extended warrantee, Honda rented a car and PSID for it for three days

I don't wanna ride in some crusty van I want to be able to come and go as I please! (j/k) I work from home 4 days a week,
I could easily shuttle back home and work. I just fear not having a car, because if I get called into the office on emergency I'm stuck.

I know I'm spoiled lol.. I have an extra car until Thursday when my buddy comes back from overseas and sells his Focus. I've had it for 2 months, I should've gone before this. I'm just lazy, and working 12-8 doesn't help.

I used to tell my Mazda dealer I need something to drive and would pay for it, and they'd provide a free loaner vehicle. I'm hoping that'll work with Honda but I'm thinking no because they don't usually have loaner fleets.
