2012 Impreza Sp Prem


Oh, I also wanted to mention that I thought it curious that the service manager at my dealership told me that all Subaru's no matter what the model, year or type of oil they use (conventional or synthetic), need to have their first oil change @ 3000 miles and second @ 6750 for proper break-in. I told him I didn't see that mentioned anywhere in the owners manual and that it actually says that the 2012+ Impreza doesn't require it's first oil change until 7500 miles. He then proceeded to tell me that I didn't know what I was talking about and in order to keep my powertrain warranty, I needed to follow his instructions. THEN he tells me that I need to have my front and rear diffs and trans oil drained and flushed because I'm over 30000 miles! I told him that I have a 5-speed and that it doesn't have a front diff and the gear oil doesn't need to be replaced yet according to the service manual. He continued to argue with me and told me that I obviously don't car about my vehicle lol. What a D!ck... I'm going to be looking for a new dealership very soon.
