    Good day. I have a Subaru Forester 2014 2.0 non-turbo. Motor Image recommends replacement of CVT fluid every 40,000 kms but on-line its around 105,000 kms. Which is true? Is it safe to have it changed every 60,000 or 80,000 kms. Thank you very much. 🤔

    We have too much idling bro. They always cut half the interval. As per manual...

    "CVT oil should be replaced under severe driving at 24,855 miles "

    Bro, where do you get your cvt fluid? I brought my own oil when I had my oil change last week.

    Based on foreign Subie sites, the CVT tranny requires a high-torque CVT fluid. Below are the specs. They say there are only a few aftermarket options, more so with the Forester XT, due to the high torque requirements of Subaru. Redline is one of the few aftermarket options. Also, many suggest that a CVTF change needs all the old fluid to be changed (13L). A simple drip and refill method will not do as there will still be a lot of the old fluid left in the tranny assembly.

    NS-2/Linear Tronic CVTF,pt# K0425Y0710 CV-30 High Torque CVT Fluid ( TF690, TR580)

    Red Line Synthetic Oil - Automatic Transmission Fluids - Non-Slip CVT

    Motul Multi CVTF also claims to meet NS-2 specs. These synthetic CVT fluids are pricey!

    I stand corrected from my previous post that cvt fluid will be replaced every 100k km. Subaru cebu advised me to replace my cvt fluid at 40K Km but i replaced it at 45k km. I read in subaru forums that they change their cvt fluid every 65k miles to 70k miles.
