2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Like many others on this site, we've been plagued by excessive oil consumption, beginning with the light coming on unexpectedly, and the dealer's telling me that
all Subarus use oil between changes. I have never, ever, experienced this with any other model car I've driven, except late into its life, like 185,000 miles, and then only a quart between changes. This is much worse.
I would happily join a class-action lawsuit, and will certainly never buy another Subaru
Almost paid for.
An engine that does not use oil between changes, and an honest 5000 mile change interval.
