I bought my 2.5GT about a month ago and I was lucky enough to get all the previous owners maintenance log. It has 89,660k miles on it and has the automatic tranny. The fluid was last changed in the tranny at 63k or so..when should I change the fluid again and is there anything special I should add..the tranns sometimes when cold seems to shift a little hard but is fine once it is warmed up..Any suggestions on maintenace at these miles would be greatly appreciated...I want to keep this car running and looking like new. Thanks!!!

Congratulations on the purchase.

Harder shifting transmissions when cold is pretty normal.

As far as fluid chages follow the intervals in the manual. If you don't have one there are places on the internet to find the time and mileage intervals, like http://www.cars101.com

Many Subarus go well over 150,000 miles with the regular maintainece.

Thanks for your input...Im thinking about doing the tranny fluid tomorrow morning just to get some new stuff in there....Im familiar with the reliability of Subaru's for sure...my father had 4 wagons when I was younger...80 DL 4WD..82 4WD..Another 82 4WD ...and an 87 4WD and all had well over 100k on them.I also had an 88 Hatch D/R 4WD for a year or two that had 203k on it and would hold up to anything it went through and is actually on the road today.
