To all you losers who are blaming the victim, you're clueless. THIS IS A SUBARU PROBLEM.
I'm also burning at least a quart between oil changes. I've changed the oil between 3k and 5k. It has done this since the day I bought it. It now has 24k miles on it. When the dealer said he thought the oil was breaking down, I paid $160 to have the old oil flushed and replaced with Subaru synthetic. 2k later, the oil light comes on.
Subaru - the dealer and the company - tell me that using a quart every 1200 miles is acceptable. I call bulls&# on that.
I check the oil every time I get gas. It will be full for hundreds of miles and then be down a quart then next fillup. It has happened twice after a trip to Boston, about 3.5 hours from here.
Anybody who knows why or any help anyone can offer dealing with Subaru will be greatly appreciated.
