Exclamation 2014 CrossTrek Transmission Fluid Change Demystification

Looking to change the transmission fluid on my 2014 Crosstrek.

Can this be done by a mere mortal, or must it be done by the dealer/mech? Owners manual is vague on the topic, merely recommending to contact the 'dealer'.

What about adding transmission fluid, does this require a Subie shop / qualified mech or can a mere mortal conduct this activity?

The CVT trans are sealed units. Unless you have all the correct tools and knowledge to this I would not attempt it.

Thumbs up Demystifying Tranmission fluid change

Agreed. Local Subie shop was extremely helpful and stated 'this happens all the time'. All set now. Thanks
