Hi Scotty,

I have a 2013 Subaru Impreza base model with a CVT and 20,000 miles on it. I recall you have mentioned that Subaru CVT's are weak. So I am thinking of replacing all the CVT fluid now with Pentosin 1120107 CVT 1 Transmission Fluid, which is a full synthetic fluid. Or should I wait until 30K miles and do it every 30K miles thereafter? Also the owner's manual says, " The CVT filter is a maintenance free part and does not need to be replaced unless it is damaged". Do you agree or should I replace it anyway?

Thanks so much. You are really the best and are helping so many people worldwide with your great experience.

I'd do it now, then every 30 thousand miles. The filter is just a screen so you can leave it alone
