ReviewIf you own a 2011 or newer Forester with the new engine requiring synthetic oil, Check/add oil frequently!
Mine requires 1 qt added every 1800 miles on average.
I read an account of another 2011 Forester owner who went just over 10,000 miles without checking or changing the oil, and the engine ran out of oil, seized and was destroyed.
You will need to add 3-4 qts in between oil changes.
Engine rattles loudly at startup for a few seconds.
Subaru needs to fix the problem of oil use.
Most people are not diligent about checking and topping up their oil.
There will be many unhappy owners.
Worst FeaturesFix the problem with the engine using so much Oil. This is unacceptable, especially with the oil costing so much money per quart.
