I don't know what the statistics are but do know there have been issues with the CVT in the past. Subaru used to have transmissions replaced to get them sent back to Japan to investigate the mode of failure so they know there are issues inherent to the design.@Remco based on your knowledge, does it seems this design inherently causing more failure of the electrical part aka solenoid and valvebody. Also the heat issue expedite the wear/tear on the tranmission thus causing shorter life-span of the CVT.
It definitely an interesting approach to transmission yet design and choices of materials seem to be a limiting factor.
Before the 100K warranty was instituted, that repair was on our dime. Quite bothersome.
Subaru may have very well improved things since, based on what they found, but there are a fair bit of cars out there where the issues have not been fixed.
