Well, with the 2013 outback the issue was bad rings.

I had a 1997 Honda prelude and I was getting compression of about 240 PSI per cylinder. The car had no performance issues, but I was burning a quart of oil every 2000 miles.

Eventually I decided to replace the engine with a JDM version. When I took the engine apart I noticed unbelievably light scoring on the number 1 cylinder wall. You could easily miss it if you didn't have a high-intensity light.

I guess my point is that it doesn't take much.
