we purchased our first new car, very exciting.. First year burned through oil, a lot of oil!
dealer said this was normal, we weren't checking properly, might have a problem.
did oil consumption test, obviously a problem 1 quart every 700 miles.
Subaru talerance is 1/3 quart every 1000?
Subaru replaced the rings, and still there's a problem. we've now reached 26K miles. No new fixes. we were advised to carry a quart of oil with us. "I don't think so!" If the 2014 is the same as the 2013 you are making a mistake purchasing this car. If they tell you it's normal.. Its Not..
Let Subaru admit and fix this "alleged" issue first, then this will be a great car.
Go aware anytime.
Tons of space, not only for "stuff" but tall passengers as well, front or back.
Acknowledge there's a problem with the oil consumption. Better quality interior materials.
