Based upon your logic, if you read that someone has a problem with their new car burning oil you would not buy from that manufacturer. Well, since EVERY manufacturer is bound to produce a small percent of cars that burn oil, that leaves them all out of your shopping experience.
If you read this forum (particularly the 400 page ranting about a car that was burning oil, except it wasn't) you might get the impression that many impreza's are burning oil.
They aren't. His car might be, that does not mean it is a widespread problem. If my car did burn oil, I would be complaining to the dealer like anyone here would. But first I would make sure I knew it was actually happening. He seems to have documented the problem, let SOA solve it.
But my car does not burn oil, neither do the cars of most of the people on this forum discussing it, including yours.
But keep worrying about it, and never buy a subaru or any new car again (those manufacturers are so awful, all of them, you should hand build your own reliable car).
And please, don't start another 400 page rant about your car burning oil, only to discover it wasn't. That's already been done. Think of something original.
My car hasn't had any opportunity to burn much so I'm trying to be POSITIVE. My car DID lose at least a quart.
And to you "oil burners"- PLEASE start 400+++ post threads. At least you can let the rest of the world know how you're being treated by Subaru.
Get off your high horse, man.
