I purchased a new 2014 Subaru Forester in March of 2013. Have followed all maintenance procedures per the manual. All work done at Saint J Subaru in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
7K service completed at dealer. at 10,000 display said oil required...1 quart added. Same thing agin at 12,600 miles. Told dealer at next service, 14,300. Said bring back in 1200 miles to check. Did that and found it burned 8 ounces. Subaru will replace rings at 10.67 ounces useage. Called Subaru and they refused to do anything even though I have bought 4 Subarus.
Subaru knows they have an issue with this engine consuming oil. Instead of getting ahead of the problem and taking care of their customers they choose to refuse to fix their own design fault. Even though I have bought four new Subaru's in the last 8 years they refuse to fix my car. Subaru customer service sucks !!!!
So much for brand loyalty.
I will wait for light to come on again and take the car to the dealer to let them see actual consumption. I am not satisfied with their test methods.
