Check for vacuum leaks.

Wouldn't the noise come if the car is in park if it's a vacuum leak?

Driving creates more air flow through the engine. Just a guess with little to go on.

It gets louder when car is engine braking

May be within "normal" range for the CVT "whine/groan/moan" continuum, as they're louder in the harder working 2.0 Imps than the 2.5 Leg/OBs. If progressively getting worse you'll need a new CVT, as it probably has a worn internal bearing. Change its CVT fluid ($100) first, if you haven't yet. Any CVT synth is ok.

So took it to the dealer thought fluid change will make it a bit quite they ending up telling me It won't and will need to replace the trany. And the reason thy told me was because thrs a "band"inside the tranny which will go bad if drive continuesly everyday for same amount of miles. Which i do drive on the highway 100 miles everyday. So they told me its out of warranty and i have to pay $7500 out of my pocket. So i got home and called the subaru corporate office and threatened to sue them and they ending up putting brand new tranny. They should really but a recall on them cvts since dealers cant even fix the transmission. These cvts will go bad after 100k miles. What a shame !!

Thanks for sharing. Since most 100k+ CVTs run just fine, it's not clear that failures are correlated with use or bearing failure. It's just too idiosyncratic right now....

That is a new one. Transmissions that fail because of commuting the same distance every day.
