Hey all. I recently bought a JDM '09 Forester with 2.0 boxer (naturally aspirated). Been meaning to change my ATF but not sure if I should use Subaru ATF Type HP or some other aftermarket brand ATF such as Valvoline. Any thoughts? I live in the Caribbean btw :)

@Harvey Stanislas I see this is your first forum post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon!

Most member would recommend sticking with Subaru ATF. With that said, we're running Red Line synthetic ATF & synthetic gear oil in both our Foresters. This was an upgrade suggested by our trusted Subaru dealership shop.

I've only used Subaru ATF HP in my 2010 for 210,000mi without issue. Some dealers give a discount if you buy a case of bottles.
