After 18 months of daily use and outdoor storage in Amsterdam this is the only problem I've had with the Nuvinci CVT hub: the cable adjuster barrels have rusted solid. Fortunately the Nuvinci never really needs any adjustment so it's not critical but I had to remove and reinstall the cables to flush water out (they were freezing each night) so I replaced the shifter.
