We can all agree that the burning oil vs not burning oil goes back and forth. Many subarus DO burn oil....the turbocharger is "oil cooled" Now I dont know how hot the turbo actually gets, but oil will get burnt off. My friend bought a brand new Forester and drove it off the lot and it burned oil from the get go. It all has to do with tolerances in the motor. Call a subie dealer and ask them about burning oil. Subaru says burning 1 qt per 1K miles is perfectly fine within factory specs.......and for the guys who dont burn oil, u must have had Tuesday-thursday built cars My car was built on a Monday and yes it consumes a bit of oil at 125K mi
