Like I mentioned, it's an option, depends on how you drive it and the climate of your location...if you drive like an idiot, nothing will last.

No, they are not the same...they are both CVTs, but not the same transmission...do a bit more research before you jump in...

As for as the cvt fluid goes, just change it when you do the diffs...there's no such thing as lifetime fluid...dude, you got metal rubbing metal inside the trans...it's simple logic, not rocket science...
