Hey folks, thanks for all your comments and advice. I think I'll just stick wit the 0W-20 and compare prices between the Subaru brand and Amsoil. If it's comparable and it's readily available I'll use the Amsoil. Only heard great things about this oil. I don't know who makes Subaru oil though.
I'm not worried about the CVT. It's been in the 5th gen. Legacys since 2010 (I think). That's enough time to shake them down. In all honesty, I thought all 2013 Outback Premiums don't offer another tranny but the CVT.
My wife will almost exclusively drive the Outback and she doesn't drive agressively, so I'm sure this car will give us many years of worry free service. I'll maintain it and she'll drive it.
Tooslick, thanks for the PM.
I appreciate the folks on this forum. It seems everyone takes an interst and are active. I posted the same general questions on subaruoutback.org 3 days ago and I didn't get a response yet.
