Default Got a Crosstrek CVT? You're (probably) covered

You probably already know this, but the Crosstrek's warranty on the CVT has been extended to 10 years/100k miles. Ours failed and was replaced at 53k miles. We're now at about 93k miles with no issues. The dealer did give me a loaner car for the week it took to install.

Next is the excessive oil consumption coverage. If your crosstrek uses excess amounts of oil, bring it to a dealer and they do an oil change and give you a range of miles to bring it back. They check what's been used and in my case, they found me in the waiting room and said "You need a short block". Mine is sitting at the dealer and I'll bring it in a couple weeks from now. My dealer offered me a loaner car. The warranty is now 8 years/100k miles.

Default Question

Sorry Iím bumping a super old thread but I just bought a 2014 Crosstrek with the cvt. Itís only at 85k and was a trade in at a dodge dealership so I know the transmission hasnít been paid much attention. What do I need to do to ensure the transmission is taken cover of and doesnít become an issue? I planned on going to a dealership for the first oil change but should I go sooner? Thanks!

When you go to a dealer, ask for a history on the car. At 85k, it is certainly possible that the transmission has already been changed. Ours was done at 53k miles. (note, we're at about 101k now with no additional problems). Ask what you should do for the transmission, which I'd guess they'll say "nothing".

As for oil burning, before you leave, following an oil change, check the oil level. Then check it maybe every 1k miles. If the engine is going through enough oil to potentially be a candidate for the oil consumption test, you won't make it 2000 miles without noticing a drop on the dip stick. If you do see that, take it in and tell them what you see. What I would tend to do is to bring it in right before you'd normally get the oil changed as they do give you a free oil change in the test.

What I found is that the oil light would go on before my oil change interval arrived (5k for me) and I'd have to add at least a quart. Fortunately, the F engines simply give you a low oil light, unlike the EJ engines where an oil light means "You've lunched your engine".
