Does it really need a new pressure switch? or an oil change can fix it?
Sounds like another issue with the cvt. What rpm were you doing? I doubt if it could hold high needing that much push. It appears the cvt was set to maximize mpg on the epa test (giving Subaru the benefit of the doubt), without regard to reality.
