Just aquired an 06 Freestyle AWD. 133K miles. No machanical issues that I can find. CVT has never been serviced. Have the dealer change the fluid and HP filter or drive it until it dies? Thanks in advamce for your thoughts.

I vote for change it, but I don't trust the dealer. I do mine myself. If you gotta take it in, just make sure they do not hook it up to a machine and check to see what fluid they are using.
