My granny's GL wagon went 400k. It ratled and squeaked but she only paid $900 for it.
Seriously though- do any of you ofther 2012 impreza owners have any oil issues???
I have/had the issue at 75mph+ cruise. Happened several times on two different trips to the beach. 70mph doesn't cause a light but 10 minutes of 75 will. Pull over immediately only to find a topped off dipstick.
I went in for the 3k oil change, ecm and tcm TSBs, and the oil light. Dealer found nothing wrong with oil, said ecu was up to date, and couldn't reproduce the engine braking issue.
My car was built 11/11. Haven't had a chance to find out if 75mph+ is still a problem.
