Default Any changes between the '12 and '13 engines?

Jst wondering since you don't hear much oil consumption problems on the 2013 engines. Also, anyone go through the process of a lemon law case? Wondering would this count with so many of us having oil consumption problems and no recalls.

The 13's seem to be juat as likely as the 12's to burn oil. There are long threads on the XV Forum and other sites with owners having issues with oil consumption.
That said, my 13 xv seems to have not burnt any noticeable amount in over 4000mi.
My 12's first low oil light was on at around 300-3500 iirc.
The only changes that have been made to the engines that can be verified is the pzev now being mandatory. The first of the 12's were only pzev as an option where not required to be so.

Ya, I read about your dislike of the '12 engine and got a XV now. Congrats on that. My appt tomorrow with Subaru for the final check of the oil dipstick. Will send the form in after that. Not sure what will happen next.
