Transmission (CVT). This new CVT utilizes a new transmission fluid, Subaru High Torque CVT Fluid and is orange in color. The CVT fluid currently being used in the nonturbo vehicles (C-30 CVT Fluid blue in color) and the new (Subaru High Torque CVT Fluid Orange in color) CAN NOT BE INTERCHANGED. Using the incorrect fluid will result in transmission damage.
Since the 2014 Turbo Foresters are now making their way to the dealers, every dealer will be automatically shipped (1) 5-gallon pail of the new Subaru High Torque CVT Fluid. The part number for this fluid is SOA748V0200. Dealers will start receiving this fluid over the next two weeks. Additional supply will be available through the normal parts channels if additional fluid is needed.
