Ok. we do drive a lot of miles(33,000) in 1 year. We have car serviced every 5000 miles at our local Subaru dealer with Subaru products. Each time of service I buy 2 extra quarts of oil this will keep it full until next service.I have complained they(dealer) tell me it's normal consumption.No leaks. It does drive and ride well just a pain to keep up with the engine oil.We bought this car brand new and we don't abuse it.This is info for anyone thinking of buying the 14 forester 2.5.We buy a new car every 3 years not sure if we'll buy another Subaru.
I have read several review about this car burning oil even when new.
I was seriously thinking about getting one of these, but if it's burning oil right off the lot that tells me it probably won't last long.
I think I will stick with Toyota.
2005 V6 Highlander with 180,000 miles does not burn a drop of oil.
