I bought a new 2013 Subaru Impreza ( manual) in Dec. The book list my first oil change should be at 7500 miles. The oil light went on at 5,000 miles... I added one quart of oil , the store only had 1 qt of the recommended type.....(I was driving through central NH; I stopped as soon as I could) Why did this happen? I was following the manual. Does this indicate problems to come? What should the mechanic be checking when I bring it in?

My 2012 Impreza with 25k miles on it had its low oil light go on in the middle of nowhere in northern MN last week. Was over a quart low. Never had this happen before. Now, I'm seeing hundreds of people complaining of oil consumption on Subaru's and especially the new Impreza's. This will be my first and last Subaru. I have NEVER had oil consumption like this on any of my Honda's or Toyotas. Never.
