Per my 2016 Forester's warranty and maintenance booklet, CVT fluid (all but BRZ models) should be checked every 30K miles and replaced every 24855 miles if used frequently in severe driving conditions.
Yes you are correct. I took the service departments word as a 60k item, my my manual does in fact say to inspect every 30k. thanks for clearing that up.
Now another question, do you thing CVT's shed a lot of metal and clutch material in their first break-in period....enough to warrant a earlier first fluid change?
