Did they give you a price on that? Haven't heard of anyone getting it done yet, and the CVT fluid only comes in 5gal pails that I'm aware. Given the price of fancy ATF, it's probably $200 per 5gal bucket.

Given the mileage and fact it was a drug Rep (or pharmaceutical co.) owned vehicle, as little maintenance as possible was done to it. My SIL has been a rep for a major one for years. Their cars get oil changes as best, and no sooner than the max allowable per the manual. Usually longer depending how busy they are. Other than that, only tires, brakes and stuff that breaks. I know she does 45-50K miles per year.
