2012 Impreza Rear Differential Fluid

Just an fyi, I looked at the rear diff fluid on my '12 Sport Premium at 14k miles last week. It was pretty dirty, so I changed it. Am changing the front diff fluid next week when I have some time. You may not want to wait till 30k miles to change it or check it. Just saying....

    It's normal for the rear diff fluid to get cruddy looking faster than the front diff/transmission fluid. And contrary to popular opinion, you can't tell if motor oil or tranny/diff fluid is bad by looking at the color. A burned smell would be a better indication of a problem than the color of the fluid.
