If you use a local shop, make sure they know what they're doing. Even a small amount of over-filling will kill a CVT. Since it hasn't had any previous service, I'd recommend dropping the pan and cleaning it out instead of just a drain-and-fill. Then follow up with another D&F in 3~5K miles, that will give the detergent in the new fluid a chance to scavenge any varnish and you'll have 3/4 new fluid. After that, 30K tops between D&F's.
