Oil Eater
By Oilwoes on


2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Brand new car from the beginning burns oil - 1600-2400 miles/quart on average. According to the dealer, Subaru specs allow oil consumption of 1000 miles/quart before they want to fix the problem. No drips - just occasional stench of oil belching for my driving pleasure. My 1997 Outback with 80,000 miles never ate oil. Will never purchase a Subaru again.

Best Features

Winterized package - especially front window deicer.

Worst Features

A better engine that doesn't eat oil by design. Interior plastic parts come lose easily.
