Default Re: Correct Gear Oil for CVT Transmission

I have 2009 Honda City I-Vtec AT with Torque Converter gearbox. Honda recommends its oil to be changed every 60,000 Kms. Last time it was changed in my car at 56,000 kms and now the odo reads 93,000 kms. I have faced no problems till now, will get it changed next at 1,12,000 kms service.

I saw that this has been quoted in the team-bhp Honda City 4th gen review, but how relevant is this really to the CVT in the newer models? I assume that the CVT would have changed from the 2nd gen to the 4th gen, are the values still appropriate? Have not heard about this anywhere else, and even Honda staff seem clueless.

When in doubt, just go by manufacturers' recommendations; they specify an interval in kms and months and choose whichever is earlier.

I choose a midpath as changing oil in, say, 12 months, on a car that has done just, say, 2500km is absurd.

Have a BRV V-CVT which has just returned from the 40K service. However the CVT gearbox oil hasn't been changed as part of standard maintenance.
Should I raise this as issue with the Service station - this is Classic Honda, Faridabad?
