[quote=Napalm3nema;40610946]Welcome to owning a Subaru.

You have no oil level light.
The oil pressure light will only go on when it's too late and your engine is boned.

Everyone here seems to think that's super and a great way to have built the cars. I was derided for suggesting that it was absurd there weren't such things in our car.

Enjoy the car, jut check the oil all the ****ing time or you'll regret it.






No worthwhile oil readings.... it's what makes a Subaru a Subaru![/QUOT]

It is not just Subarus that are like this. No car from any car manufacture has a feature that sets the check engine light off if the oil is low or leaking from your car. It only sets a check engine light when the oil gets so low your motor is prob toast. Again its like that with any manufacture not just Subaru.

You need to just check your oil and stay on top of it. If you see a leak fix it before it gets to bad and keep an eye on your oil level all the time but more so if you see you have an oil leak, even a small 1. These cars do tend to run pretty hot because of the turbo so they will burn threw oil a lot fast then other cars. So its a good idea to check your oil every time you fill up with gas, it only takes a min to do and your waiting for gas to pump anyway so just start checking your oil when you fill up.
