    I was out in Denver from Ohio. On a 102 degree afternoon, I got AT overheat light. I pulled over and to make a short story long, got my 2017 Crosstrek towed to the Golden Subaru dealer. Three days later, I got the car back - apparently, the Control Valve Body went bad. They replaced it, some...

    I keep my Crosstrek Sport (2.5L) in Sport mode all the time. I notice it hooks up much harder off the line and has very strong engine braking when slowing down...compared to the "Intelligent" mode. I can't imagine this being easy on the CVT. Thoughts?

    Hey All, I've got a 2016 Crosstrek premium, currently 74K miles. I've been noticing that the whole vehicle sort of wobbles right at 30 mph, and only at 30 mph. If I speed up to 35 mph, or slow down to 25 mph, there is no wobble... There's no noise associated with it, and doesn't seem to have...

    Hi All, I recently purchased a used Subaru XV 2014. And I have been advised that I should change the CVT Oil as there is a jerk when driving in low gears and usually the CVT should be changed after 50,000 Miles. This has already done 62,000+ miles. I reached out to Subaru and they recommended...

    greetings fellow crosstrekers, just did a cvt oil change on a 2019 Subaru crosstrek at 40k miles. Wanted to show comparison between the new cvt oil and 40k cvt oil left is new and right is old truthfully, I believe it is best to change oil out every 30k after looking at the old oil

    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. My “Check Engine Light” lit solid, “Traction Control OFF” light lit solid, ABS light lit solid, uphill light lit solid, “At...
  7. 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...

    So I am new to the CVT AWD field. I am very familiar with normal trany flushes etc. Making myself familiar with the maintenance schedule for the difs and cvt it's noted that unless the car is preforming in a sever duty situation the fluid is to be "inspetced" . Can anyone define inspected for me...

    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? I found it on an Outback forum: Disconnect battery Put foot on brake for 10 seconds (drain electrical system) Reconnect battery Turn ignition...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    Greetings. I'm new to this forum, and cannot find a word about the CVT problem, so I'm posting a new thread. Sorry. I Googled my 2014 Crosstrek XV before I bought it, and it got great reviews, but I JUST got the letter about the CVT problem. I'm 70 years old and I'm working 2 jobs to pay for...

    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. Tried turing off the car and turning it back on. It wouldn't go into gear. Smelled a burning smell and the only light on now was...

    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?
  20. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Ok so there seems to be a vibration through the gas pedal at low rpms at around 20-25 mph. Almost like the CVT is overloaded....as soon as you get past those points it goes away. Anyone have ideas on this? Looked at everything I could think of but nothing seems wrong or out of place. Subaru...
