What kind of fluid does a Nissan CVT take?
NISSAN CVT Fluid NS-2 (“green fluid”) – applies to all Nissan vehicles equipped with a CVT built prior to 2013. Use NS-2 green fluid to service these vehicles. New, unused service replacement CVTs may have some residual “blue” NS-3 fluid. However, these service replacement CVTs should be filled with NS-2 green fluid.

The oil change interval for CVT transmissions varies for each automaker. Below is a list of car brands and models along with the suggested CVT fluid change schedule. CVT fluid certainly wears out over time.
Does CVT fluid have to be in good condition?
CVT fluid has to be in acceptable condition to protect against metal-to-metal contact. It also has to provide the correct frictional properties. Once the CVT fluid has broken down, poor performance and accelerated wear can start. CVT transmissions are very expensive to replace.
