I used the search engine but didn’t find the answers I wanted.

I bought my daughter a 2009 Cube about 3 years ago. It has 100K miles and the CVT was replaced around 60K under warranty. I had Nissan replace the CVT oil at 80K miles. This car has to last her through high school and hopefully college. I’ve already had an engine rebuild at 80K and the head gasket replaced at 95K. Love the looks and functionality of the car but it’s been the most unreliable car mechanical amongst any Japanese vehicle we’ve owned.

I fear the CVT may fail like the original so I’m planning on having the CVT fluid changed every 30-40K miles. I’ve read that some folks have installed external CVT oil coolers. I’m wondering if the fluid intervals I mentioned is enough or should I have an external CVT oil cooler installed? Would love to hear comments with folks that actually has external CVT oil coolers installed. Thanks
