Vehicle2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Limited 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewI am experiencing a significant problem with my Subaru Impreza 2012 with excessive use of oil and the oil light going on.
I understand from the service people that this is caused by "blowback" past the cylinders, causing excessive oil use, inconvenience to owners, and an inflated cost of ownership (synthetic oil is $8/qt.) Subaru insists this is normal but when I traded in my Lexus at 257,000 miles with never an additional drop of oil between oil changes, I certainly didn't expect to trade it in for an oil guzzler like the Subaru Impreza.
Subaru will do nothing and insists this is normal - - at least for them!
Any ideas how to pressure Subaru?
It was fixed for the 2014 model.

Any idea if the 2013-4 models solved the oil issue? I don't see that similar comments in those reviewsReport it

I've had a similar excessive oil consumption issue with my 2012 Impreza. Looks like there is now a class action lawsuit. It appears to involve several years and Subaru models.Report it
