    Change CVT fluid for Subaru Forester SJ5 is every 70T kms ... that's according to one dealer ... another dealer will give a different answer ... CVT fluid change interval should be in the manuals ...

    Philippine traffic is horrible for the CVT. I'd follow the shorter interval, to be safe.

    I've seen various NEW automatics (CVTs, dual clutch, even torque converter type!) overheat in our weather. Granted, that's under extreme use (track, three hour EDSA traffic), but that just tells you how bad local conditions are compared to US conditions.

    In US forums, they recommend shortening intervals to 40k miles to extend the life of the CVTs for some of those JATCO boxes.

    It's an extra expense, but so's a new transmission.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    60 to 80km per hour. i travel at 4am and there is no traffic. i only encounter traffic when i return home from work. my working station is 110km south of cebu city.usually i get 12 to 14 km per liter. it could be more than 80% highway driving. i use a small car with manual trans when im in the city.

    That's 40,000 kilometers. Does not sound excessive to me. However, how can one prolong the replacement cycle if I may ask?

    Motor Image advised that CVTF needs to be replaced at 40k KM actual mileage. I highly suggest not prolonging any further the CVTF change. Your are talking about the tranny here.
