I figure if Subaru thinks their cars need more frequent oil changes in colder temperatures, that would be in the manual and it would have also occurred at my dealership in Seattle.

Thanks, and yes, sort of... They did try to sell me a "preventive maintenance" service they could do on the spot. I'm at 16,600... There again, I asked if this was a Subaru policy and if so, why wasn't it in my service / maintenance schedule. I asked him to look up and show me Subaru's service plan and the need for this additional service, but he said it was temporarily unavailable.

Thank you, yes, very helpful. Oil changes and tires are such personal preference items. I just didn't like how they were trying to BS me and pass it off as something I better do, or else... Fear tactics piss me off.

Thanks everyone for your input! I appreciate it. I won't go back to the Lang group. they tried to scam you in multiple ways. It makes me sad to think of how many people fall for this crap.
