    Looks like I have ~ 12,000 miles on the "go extra" and still good No grinding any gears, I can downshift into 1st (w/ double clutch) at 20mph w/ no problems.

    Several of the folks competing in some of the bigger venues are still using this same fluid, they've had the opportunity to try out several fluids and have settled on this.

    Someone posted above 10 gallons, but it's actually five gals (20 liters)- enough to do five full fills.

    I'm not sure what the manual calls for tranny/diff changes- I do mine at ~ 20,000 miles- I'm pretty sure this is earlier than what the manual calls for. Most of my maintainence tends to be "ahead of schedule"

    5 fills for that price is pretty good. Think about how much money you save just doing it yourself. I think I will hit up my local dealer for this and some oem oil filters. What are you guys using for the trans????

    my bad I read back a few posts and see now that it can be used for the tranny and f/r diff as well. So any subaru dealer should be able to get a hold of this?

    Do you know where your front diff is?

    front dif is filled w/ the tranny and this will work for the rear- yeah any dealer should be able to get it, but again I'd caution to get it by part #- not something they fill a jug w/- dealers are using all kinds of different fluids- this one works- I can't vouch for they may be using in their shops.

    has anyone bought a certified pre-owned scooby??? I am wondering if they did my 30000 mile service before I bought it since it had 29000 or so miles on it when I bought it. Oil, tranny fluid and coolant all look very clean so I am assuming they did but I am not taking any chances. Can I just go into the dealer and ask for the records will they have that??? I am new to the newer cars with warrantys on it and what not so sorry for the noobish questions.
