Here is an estimate, based upon math. You may be familiar with math, it allows you to estimate things, based upon known numbers.

In November, 2012, Subaru sold 4,552 of the newly designed Impreza's in the United States. We can estimate that Subaru has sold between 50,000-60,000 Impreza's in the United States over the past year. I haven't seen the total sales figure, but if you can find it, provide it.
You've identified 15-20 cases on this forum of individual owners who think their car is consuming oil. This forum is currently the main discussion of this issue that can be found on the internet. It actually shows up quite readily if you google Subura Impreza problems.

If we assume that at least 100 cars are consuming oil (more than any evidence so far suggests), and we estimate 55,000 total cars sold in the USA since last November, you are looking at 0.18% cars with oil consumption. That's the math part.

I know you think that thousands are affected, but you have no evidence to support that theory, but then again there seems to be little evidence for any of your theories.

Now fly off the handle again throwing another of your classic hissy fits...
The actual, year to date to date total of Imprezas sold up to November 30th, 2012 is 62,312.
