Why you ask?
Because as someone who worked in the auto industry for years, I have
some basic understanding of vehicles. No fluid or lubricant lasts indefinitely.
Period. When the old fluid was draining, I asked the tech to put a sample
in a plastic container, which he did. I then compared it to the new, genuine
Subaru fluid. The old fluid at 22k miles showed signs of breakdown. It
didn't even feel the same on my fingers as the new fluid. Since only a portion
of the fluid can be drained out during a Drain and Refill, I chose to perform
another maintenance at 50K miles. You may wish to NEVER service the
CVT, that is YOUR choice. I assure you that should you keep your Subaru
a very long time, you will regret NOT servicing your CVT and other components
regularly. Additionally, we experience more heat here in Arizona than many
other places and heat is the enemy of engines and transmissions.
