Im sure "care" in "Interior & Exterior Modification & Care" would include oil change....so..
I changed my oil after about 2000 miles and put in Mobil 1 15w-50.

Interior and exterior care refers to body and interior, not engine/drivetrain. This is more of a service and maintenance question. And yes, it's been posted and discussed many, many times.
You will find the recommended oil change intervals and viscosities in your owners manual, there is a chart with suggested viscosities vs. ambient temps. 15W50 is NOT a Subaru-recommended viscosity.
