My 2013 3.5 SV has had CVT issues from day one but the worst of it was fixed with a software upgrade in the first few months I owned the car. I have 61k on it now and I still get some weirdness now and then but I've noticed it's most common in one situation. If you have just navigated a curve (even at low speed say 10 mph) the slipping feeling is more likely to happen.

Has anyone else noticed this ? Theories as to why the motion of the car (g-force) would make a difference are also welcome. Fluid sloshing ? g-force on some heavy part of the assembly ?

I am in a battle with the dealership right now over this in my 13 3.5 SL, and yes when you go around jug handles or sharp turns is when the violent CVT slipping seems to occur most. I am still dealing with lugging/studdering when doing 25-40 mph as well.....I wish I never bought this car as this CVT is a massive POS. I've been battling the dealer since I bought it certified pre owned on Halloween.
