If anyone was wondering if the 2nd gen fixed the CVT problems the answer is no. Faithfully changed the fluid every 20,000 miles and mine still failed. Invoice attached:

Cvts will always have their issues. Just like every other style of transmission. Automatics eventually fail. Manuals eventually fail. Some last forever. Some die under warranty. So is the way of the automobile. From my experience at nissan, the gen2 cvts are LESS prone to issues. Not impervious to them.If anyone was wondering if the 2nd gen fixed the CVT problems the answer is no. Faithfully changed the fluid every 20,000 miles and mine still failed. Invoice attached:
Bone stock, Nissan told me to pound sand when it came to some kind of reimbursement given it failed within 1,000 miles or so of the previous CVT fluid change.Was you’re Juke tuned? Seems that most of the issues on the forum with gen1 cvt have been tuned.
I just got notification by mail that there is now a class action lawsuit.The Juke CVT are not failing in bunches. Those that are modded.........they'll fail eventually. The Gen2 seem to not be failing as much as the Gen1. Maintenance, driving method, and design all factor.
In terms of frequent oil changes, might not matter. If the trans pan isn't dropped and the magnets cleaned of metal shavings, then that can build up in the trans. If the (2) internal filters aren't replaced then you get reduced oil flow thru the system or even the oil cooling circuit, then things start overheating.
I don't see a class action happening for a Juke, no way. If maintained properly on a stock vehicle they should last the 100k miles.
