Low oil light went on in my 2012 Impreza last week. Needed over a quart of oil. Car has 25k miles on it. About 3k miles since my last oil change when the oil level was full. I've never had a 2 year old car use oil. Have owned over 15 new cars in my lifetime. Many Hondas and Toyotas. None of them used oil like this Subaru. None of them. This is my first and last Subaru. Subaru won't help either. To avoid warranty claims on this issue they state in the owners manual to expect to use a quart every 1200 miles. LOL. Can you believe that? You have to drive everywhere with a case of oil in the trunk since its hard to find 0W20 synthetic in small towns. And the stuff is $8 a quart just to add some insult to injury. My last Subaru. Consumer Reports should stop recommending this Make.
