a way to control power distribution between the front and rear axle.

example 40/60-30/70
for everyday driving keep it in auto until you get to know the car and get comfortable.

Take it to the Subaru dealership if you are wanting to go to the dealer. Or ask some people here and they might help you.

. Well since 2011, all new cars need synthetic. They recommend synthetic on older cars but it's not required.

no such thing as best oil. you can use anything from rotella T6 for summer as its a 5w40 to regular mobil1 5w30. its what ever you" want to put in and be satisfied with. And oil filter, never go wrong with a subaru filter.


I personally stand by Amsoil as I have 206 on the clock thanks to that oil.
