Are there any "good" videos out there to change the cvt fluid and filter for a 2016-2019 corolla? Do you recommend DIY or should the dealer do this kind of work. I've seen some videos out there, but they are the Japanese versions. They use TC fluid where as we use FE fluid. What are your recommendations.

@r8989k just enjoy what you like buying, there is always a trade off buying anything. Besides you got a very refined Honda especially when you turbo charged it. I also understand manuals are not the most pleasant for drivers taking it easy. You also got a much better handling vehicle than a Toyota. One more thing, I do not like how he always doubts on people making decisions freely but I won’t do that, good luck👍.

I would do it every 40 to 60 thousand miles,, cause it wears very gradually and if you go by them acting up, it's too late then
