How long will a CVT transmission last?

100,000 miles
CVT transmissions last just as long as a traditional automatic transmission and are designed to last the full life of the vehicle. The typical CVT has a life expectancy of at least 100,000 miles. Certain models like the Toyota Prius commonly last well over 300,000 miles.

How do I know if my CVT transmission is going bad?
