But people need to understand what a replacement costs when the warranty is up. From what I understand the CVT and center differential is one huge non-serviceable unit that is very expensive to replace.
Iíve found a few with less than 100k for about 300$. Expensive compared to a 4eat for 100$. Thereís a 2013 Impreza engine and cvt transmission for 900$ for sale in my area. They want 900$ for the complete subframe assembly from the same car.

For those of you that know this transmission... It's the same one in the Legacy with the 3.6, right?

I turned 78k miles this weekend, still haven't had issue. I don't exactly race it, as it sees a lot of highway miles, but sometimes I do pretend it's the same as my dearly missed '04 STI... Will keep you all updated, I intend to take this well past 100k

Like I mentioned, it's an option, depends on how you drive it and the climate of your location...if you drive like an idiot, nothing will last.

No, they are not the same...they are both CVTs, but not the same transmission...do a bit more research before you jump in...

As for as the cvt fluid goes, just change it when you do the diffs...there's no such thing as lifetime fluid...dude, you got metal rubbing metal inside the trans...it's simple logic, not rocket science...

Seriously, people in forums can be such dicks.

The 3.6 Outback uses the TR690 HTCVT which is the same as the WRX and FXT. Iím certain I read in another thread that the 3.6 Legacy also has the TR690. Obviously, the 2.5 would be different.

I'm sitting at about 8k miles on a '18 WRX CVT, and it's been generally fine thus far. Trying to be cautious as I'm generally trying to drive gently until the CVT is warmed up to operating temperature.

I have also gone stage 1, but I have no other power mods so I'm generally expecting everything to be fine. From what I have seen thus far with Stage 1, it definitely made Sport and S# modes MUCH better.

I'll keep watching it, and see how things go.

You guys make me laugh how cautious you are. I'm turning 80k miles and have hit WOT once a day, often after it warms up, but I'm definitely not babying it.
