    Subaru CVT oil change made simple.....

    Yeah, if you don't like'em, you don't like'em.:) I personally like CVTs(or any auto)in the less sporty vehicles for their everyday-ness in traffic, normal commuting, shopping, visiting, long distance travel etc. However, when it comes to driving enjoyment, most folks would prefer a manual...

    Subaru CVT oil change made simple.....

    ^^^Right! Anything can be done if it's done well. Because I don't know transmissions very well, I don't understand why CVTs can't just be built well. If they're(MFGs) are going to install them in vehicles, build them well for crying out loud! Nissan builds a nice vehicle to drive. I've now...

    Mazda 3 just reached 300,000 miles

    My daughter had an 06 3i 2.0L auto(sold in 2018) that made it to 170K before the rust just got too bad to keep the car any longer. She now has the 15 Civic in my signature.

    Nice! My good buddy recently bought an F150 w/the new 10 speed tranny. Yup, it's nice indeed.

    Subaru CVT oil change made simple.....

    PTL that I haven't had nor do I want to have any issues with my CVT, nor does anyone else with their own. However, I will drive the car like a human being rather than an idiot(not that I would anyway) and am going to maintain the tranny as I have with other trannies that I've owned. Sure, in...

    Most miles per tank

    ^^^Edit: Due to being on the road out of state, I am filling up the tank when it's convenient in case of traffic holdup. However, my first tank of gas was 38 mpg hard reading, which is right at my EPA(27 city/38 hiwy with 31 comb). This second tank is showing 40+ but I haven't filled up yet in...

    Most miles per tank

    I get'cha 👍🏼 However, I needed new tires(spring 2020) and I see no difference in MPG between these newish P7s and my ol'worn OE MXV4s. These Pirelli's are quite fuel efficient. They were removed for winter 2020-21 and I just reinstalled them. There is ~ 4K-5k miles on them so, I'd say they're at...

    Subaru CVT oil change made simple.....

    I like the CVT and we have two in my signature. Both work a designed and complimentary of the cars personalities & mission. I suppose you could say that, since we have the means, if we wanted vehicles that were more engaging to drive, we would have bought vehicles that are more engaging to...

    Most miles per tank

    We will be leaving for FL this weekend in the Altima 2.5(w/65K) in my signature. However, we will have the car loaded up with our belongings and traveling through some hilly areas of the northeast from NY down through PA, VA etc., all the way to Tampa. We'll see how it goes! I mean, I'm using a...

    Ever consider being a One-Car Family?

    Jumping in here late. Other than the Firebird in my signature in which my wife & I bought new when we got married in 1980 and the Civic that in our daughter's(living on her own) car in which I maintain, my wife & I have cut down to just the Altima for everyday use between the two of us. Rather...

    cleaning the inside of the windscreen

    I like just regular water in on cloth(any cloth) and a microfiber towel for drying in two directions. Do smaller sections if the water is drying too quickly and don't clean the windscreen in the heat. Also, do it two or more times if you have to.

    Trouble logging in after forum switched formats last year?

    I don't have that issue with BITOG however, the gas station that I use most(Speedway), their web page causes me the same problem as you describe when I try to log in on my tablet/laptop computer that I am on as I write this. So, in order to check my Speedy Rewards account & points etc. I use...

    KYB or OEM Toyota shocks?

    In our recent experience with a 2006 mazda3, we had Monroe QuickStruts & OE Spec installed 2X in 3 yrs. They just don' t last the way they used to. The OE lasted over 100,000 miles.

    Supertech Full Synth High Mileage 5W20 SP

    Yes, very good indeed. My only wish would be is for a bit higher TBN. I don't see 6.9 being all that high as Blackstone says.

    KYB or OEM Toyota shocks?

    IMO, aftermarket shocks and struts from the brands we once held in high regard are no longer what they used to be. If you want to do the job once, whether you or a shop will be doing the work then do it right and get the OE from Toyota.

    To change or not to change?

    I changed my oil/filter in the Altima in my signature 11-15-20(prior to Thanksgiving) and I've only gone ~ 2300 miles since and am leaving for FL in a couple of weeks. I don't plan on changing the oil till I get back home. The oil & filter I currently have in the engine is, Rotella Gas...
