I'm sure at some point the belt on the CVT will have to be replaced but i don't think the whole system will have to.
AFAIK, the belt/chain in the CVT can not be replaced at a dealership as the process requires jigs & fixtures that they don't have. If the belt fails, it's a remove and replace with a new transaxle. That said, the belt/chain is the least likely part to fail in this transmission. I haven't looked at the OM for this car yet, but if there isn't a maintenance item listed for the CVT, I bet you have nothing to worry about. The old 5AT doesn't have a maintenance item for it, until the MM calls for servicing it.
