Burns oil tooo FAST and frequent bulb outagaes
By cin0904 on


2008 Subaru Tribeca Limited 5-Pass 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


I bought the vehicle used 1 yr ago.
I discovered the oil burns very very fast.
I put 4 qts of oil in the vehicle and two weeks later the dip stick was completely empty.
Tires Plus informed I need to take the vehicle to the dealership due to the oil is buring entirely too fast and could cause issues to the engine.
I am also experiencing issues with frequent headlight bulb outage.
I replaced both left and right headlights twice over the last 4 months.
Now both high beams are out and the fog lights are out.
the light in the trunk is out.
It flickers from time to time.
I have to constantly check my oil weekly to ensure it isn't bone dry.
Thread on leather seats are coming apart.
