Default 2017 sport cvt slipping

Cvt started slipping at 32k. It started off acting differnt , a little sluggish than normal, idling a bit rough, and at low rpms driving rough so I changed fluid twice. Now today it slipped when pulling out in traffic. What is causing this??

welcome to the forum. you mentioned you changed the fluid twice, what type of fluid did you use. If it was not Honda only fluid, that may be the cause. it should still be under warranty, Honda should fix it but make sure you're using the correct Honda only fluid,

it may be the segmented spline slipping on the spools causing the trans to drive rough or slip. get it to Honda to fix, document what is happening and even at the dealership.

What exactly is that?? Is that the drive pulley shaft that connects to the torque converter?

Ok so after driving this morning , it may not exactly slip. If I slowly accelerate the rpms will go up to about 2-3k and hang there and accelerate sluggish then jump all the way up passed 5k . Never did this before.

to explain how a cvt works is difficult, need to see a you tube video. the segmented drive has a bunch of segments on a multi steel belt that transfers shaft power to converter drive and they ride on 2 cones. I don't make sense until you see the video. it was interesting how it works.
