Default Anyone know what brand is Subaru OEM transmission oil?

I recently got back from my dealer after they topped off my transmission fluid because I thought there was a leak. I was mad at them for only topping it off since I read in the owner's manual that you shouldn't mix different brands of transmission oils, even if the weights are the same. I'm trying to make sure it's at least the same brand. Anyone know what brand of transmission oil is subaru oem?

Thanks

No worries, mate......

Odds are they didn't add any at all...the mech just said he did...or they added 1/2l or less....either way, nothing to get in a bunch over.

The dealer can use whatever they want as long as it is a GL-5, non-syn lube of proper weight....75w-90 or 80w90. Many use Valvoline.

Yeah, Just like when daddy fixed ZUZU's rose petals in "It's a wonderful life"

In case you dont remember, she was like "my rose!",and daddy said "I'll fix it!" but he really just put the petals that fell off into his pocket when she wasnt looking. Man I need to go to bed.
