  • We should perform the first oil change at 3k miles, not at the 7500 miles stated in the owner's manual.
  • When changing the oil at 3k miles, at that point we can begin using the recommended synthetic oil.

Does that sound about right?
My maintenance manual says 3k oil change is the first. Not sure if this is dealer recommended or Subaru.
