Just thought I'd share my experience here:

I have a 2008 MK1 CVT Honda Jazz. Bought 2nd hand this year. Soon after I bought it I noticed that it judders when pulling away, especially if I accelerate fast or up a hill. After reading this thread I put it in at a honda dealer to get the CVT fluid changed. They recommended a flush (change fluid 2x times) which cost 150. They said they did some kind of heating procedure in between the two oil changes (not sure of details). After the flush the judder is gone. Hurray!

Thanks everyone on this thread for sharing your experiences, without which I wouldn't have known what to do about the judder.

Have a 2002, fitted new pack 2011 at 55,000 km by previous owner. Trace of judder at 85,000 but just drain and fill with CVTF seems to have eliminated. The garage slip routine seemed a bit brutal if avoidable.

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a Jazz 1.4 CVT from 2005 with 37000km(sorry 23000miles) and I also have a Civic Hybrid 2010 with CVT as well.

The Jazz had the judder and I flushed the gearbox with Honda CVT fluid.
First I drained the old fluid and refill with new. I did a test drive and the judder fell almost to 30% let's say.
Then I performed the ''stall test'', D+brake+2500revs for 10 sec etc..etc. From that moment judder was gone completely!

Went back home drained the CVT fluid again, and refill with new one.  ;D :D
