Well, that would be a reason to get a normally-aspirated BRZ. I wish they would put the BRZ engine in our Imprezas....

I just saw this, the Impreza won the Consumer Reports 2013 Top Pick for Compact car: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/m...2013/index.htm Perhaps that should help with resell values!

Oh well. I'm still thinking the WRX might be my next car (several years out), if I like the next generation. Can't wait to see what it looks like, beyond mock-ups and renderings.

So you should know pretty darn well to not wish that on anyone.

If you dont like the potential for MASSIVE oil consumption, the BRZ isn't a great choice. Its allowed to burn 1.1 quarts in 600 miles.

You didn't really though. Not for saying that awful statement & knowing it's happened to you makes it worse. You apologized for letting people push your buttons. Which btw if you didn't LET them they wouldn't continue to push them.

I'm guessing that means their tester needing oil added didn't raise their hackles much, because they are still recommending it...

They never even read the owners manual, and had no idea what oil it took- till the light came on. They obviously dont do their own changes, and will probably be done with the car before any warranty is up.

SleepN- I forget not to feed the trolls occasionally. All would have been well bjut someone quoted him. He likes to talk all kinds of **** and knows I cant and dont care to read what he types. So he comes in every time I say a damning statement about subaru and take cheAp shots at me knowing I just see a little bar with his or her name.

I just found this.

http://www.lemonlaw.com/wordpress/su...l-consumption/


Very interesting. Apparently this lemon law specialist is seeing A LOT of unhappy subaru owners with oil burnig issues. Anyone with an oil burner may find this helpful.

Each state has their own lemon laws. In Maryland, they are specific about the faults with subsequent repair attempts etc. that had to be made. The links on the side of that website you posted are not specific at all. It makes it seem like the laws are loose, which could be a result of that attorney trying to find business. Google it yourself, don't take their word for it.

I just see it as more anecdotal evidence of a more widespread oil consumption issue.

No offense but it is wishful thinking. Notice how they mention the whole lineup, not just the Impreza. It's from a freaking lawyer man. Look at the blog homepage,http://www.lemonlaw.com/wordpress/ it is clear that they scour the internet for threads like this to come up with their content.

Opinionated observation.


DGM
Car consumed .5 qt or less from 2500 to 3600
And then stopped. Got the oil light when on an incline pulled over on flat surface and confirmed the .5(more like .3/.4) which I was already aware of. Topped it off and all good. Now when I picked up the car the dipstick read below full as the dealership never topped it off (I had less than 5qt in car
at pickup time, oil level was 1mm or more below top dot). So .5 is not the actual used amount of oil since she wasn't full. The oil level on flat was above lower dot but what the hell. Now obviously breaking in car engien means some oil is gonna get drank so no need to worry however for those just picking up cars I would say to check that your oil was full before leaving dealership.
Consumption for me on this car will be about 1qt over 7k miles. After I changed the oil, I have 2k on the clock and the same oil level no consumption thus far.

RED

More of an observation both cars are severe service the red gets more of the stop and go traffic and she isn't as high rpm as myself driving style wise. I test filled m1 and it has to be the thinnest oil I have seen. Subaru idemitsu and Kendall are def thicker and m1 is super thin and I have to be real fast to read the dipstick. So far we have about .4 or less oil used I only put in 5 qts since oci is every 4k. I won't be using the m1 again as this was just to see if it could hold up to NYC traffic. I would say its decent but you can get cheaper oil for the price.

They clearly stated that they had to add oil, and that finding oil was not as easy as usual being that it called for 0w20.

Oh, I didn't read the article/watch the video or whatever....it was just a thought. I've done 2 oil changes since I bought mine and I have yet to add a drop in between.

Which is why us oil burner know our engines arent as "good" as yours.
The article makes it clear they dont check their dipstick or owners manual. Unless they are FORCED to.
From what I've garnered, if you get one oil light, you'll get more unless you do regular top-offs.
