That CVT that the rest of the world gets is a "6-speed" CVT...that might not have helped either. Someone will take one apart just to prove it one way or the other probably.

On other markets (e.g. New Zealand), Mitsu specifically mentions the CVT word when describing the tranny - "INVECS-III Sport Mode 6-speed CVT" .... According with a Mitsu press release, the 2008 Lancer is the FIRST Mitsubishi car with CVT in NA.
Whomever says the NA 2007 Outlander has a CVT tranny is misinformed.
#7 of 8 CVTs?

AFAIK, 2.4L 4cyl versions get CVT transmission, while all 3.0L V6 gets the traditional Auto transmission.
Indeed anybody who speaks of CVT in a 07 US Outlander is misinformed. MMNA never made any official statements regarding 07 Outlanders having CVTs.

... and metuchenscale, if your Service Manager told you that the NA 07 Outlander has a CVT tranny, you may want to take your Outlander, I take you have one, to another dealership for service. I could accept this lack of knowledge from a salesperson, but not from a Service Manager. Just my $0.02 ...
