    Please don't do this for the love of God. Your car's transmission will be ruined.

    A regular automatic transmission and a CVT automatic transmission are completely different in how they work mechanically. Therefore the fluids required is completely different too. A regular auto transmission is basically a hydraulic pump with some gears and "bands". A CVT uses concentric "cones" with either a belt or chain between them that changes ratios due to speed and centrifugal forces.

    Dont even think about putting in the wrong fluid. Your transmission will most likely fail.

    1.7 is the JDM Ferio and has a CVT. Your mechanic is right.
    Look at your shifter... does it say P R N D S B/L or P R N D4 D3 D2 and L ?

    It is CVT if it is the former.
