My CVT was supposedly replaced and then the new one had the chain and cones
replaced. The noise is an irritation, and seems to be coming back again. I
think the additive they use has a lifespam of 3000 miles. What is strange, is
that in neutral after warmup, I can get the same noise to occur. Saturn
extended my warranty to 5yr-60,000 mile. However I think the durability issue
or resale will be compromised. Has anyone spoken to 2004 cvt drivers as to
their experience? We're very happy with the vehicle and I bought a 2003 manual
trans Vue also.
