    I have a 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited CVT with 118K miles at the time of incident. For starters, I knew something was wrong when my dash lit up like a Christmas tree.

    Crosstreks Off Road
    I drive a 2014 Subaru XV/Crosstrek CVT transmission with a 1.5" lift and all terrain tyres. The other day I was off-roading down by a river bed where the surface is mostly very stoney. I had to cross a few bits of water and noticed that with some crossings with smaller stones i was getting...

    Engine and Drivetrain
    So I am new to the CVT AWD field.

    Getting my valve body replaced on the CVT and need to find out the "relearn' procedure. Anyone know if this is the correct one for a 2015 XV crosstrek?

  6. Model Year 2012 to 2017 2013 Crosstrek CVT Valve Body and CVTF Replacement

    Engine and Drivetrain
    My Crosstrek was shuddering at low speeds under light load. Then the following dash lights - ABS, Traction Control, Hill Assist Check Engine, and AT Trans Oil lit up. The car, oddly, no longer shuddered and actually drove better. I replaced the brake switch - no change. I reset the dash...
  7. Model Year 2012 to 2017 What To Do When You Accidentally Drain The CVT Transmission

    DIY and 3rd party Maintenance, How To's & Tools
    The Story: So... my 2014 Crosstrek has about 40k miles on it and I wanted to run some Motor Medic through the engine before changing the oil. I've found that it really helps with keeping the engine idling smooth, and since I purchased the car secondhand, I wanted to make sure the engine was nice...
  8. Model Year 2012 to 2017 P2764 Code and CVT repair

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi, My dash lit up like Griswald's house the other day. It was of course the known CVT issue and the Torque Converter Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid. Of course I'm outside the extended warranty 10yrs or 100K by 14K miles. My car is only a 2013 which I find ridiculous that a 5 yr old subaru...
  9. Model Year 2012 to 2017 2014 Subaru Crosstrek

    Engine and Drivetrain
    What would happen if the front differential was changed at 60,000 miles and gear oil added through the vent hole? Also what do you think would happen if the cvt transmission was checked by taking off the plug from the sealed unit? Definite failure? Run for awhile?
  10. Model Year 2018 and Newer CVT issues fixed in 2018 models?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I'm planning to buy a 2018 Crosstrek in a few months. I currently have a 2012 Impreza with the CVT which appears to have design issues forcing SOA to extend the warranty to 100K miles. I've searched online but could not find any information if the CVTs have been redesigned or whatever issue...

    2016 Subaru Crosstrek with 35,000 miles experienced a CVT failure on the freeway. I heard a loud pop suddenly lost power. All of the cluster warning lights turned on.

  13. Service CVT fluid and wheel bearings? Replace brake fluid?

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Currently at the 36k mile mark on my 2015 Crosstrek CVT. Maintenance schedule has some large tasks due or coming up that don't seem entirely necessary to me, but the last thing I want to do is neglect my Subie. Change the CVT fluid, lubricate the wheel bearings, change brake fluid, accessory...

    My Crosstrek acts like the clutch is slipping when I accelerate specially from 1st gear to about the 3rd. Is this normal for Subarus?

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi, I have a 2015 XV Crosstrek with under 2k km on it. I noticed an oil leak on the garage floor where I parked my car. Further investigation led me to think it's coming from the CVT transmission oil drain plug. I checked and the plug is in there tight. Has anyone else encountered this on a...
