Hello everyone!

I've been lurking on this site for many years.
It has been helpful, humorous and a great source of inspiration.
Thank you all for that.
Since 2007 I've had:
2000 Outback wagon
2002 Legacy GT wagon
2017 WRX STI Limited (no wing)
2019 WRX STI Series Gray
I hope I can contribute things that help others as much as this place has helped me.

Welcome to NASIOC. Any plans for your STI? Drive it for a while and enjoy it as is, I say.

I loved my wagons. They did everything!
My 17 limited was my first brand new car.
The 19 STI is going to stay "mostly" stock. Just wheels & exhaust.
Still trying to decide what wheels.

I have finally re-joined.

I bought an 02 WRX back in 02 and joined up to find out how to mod my car because I was young and dumb.

Now married and my wife is looking for something like an outback. So I'm back to research how reliable they aer now a days.

Hi guys, Iím new on the site, till December I did drive a 11 wrx, I bought it in 12 with 10k miles on board. But I had an issue with my last oil change, the mechanic used the old gasket on the oil plug, I did drive 600 miles strait, and I lost all the oil, and my engine knocked. Now the dealership doesnít want to take any responsibility on it. Anyone can tell me if it is normal to loose all the oil in such a short time. Again Iím sorry for writing here, but Iím not sure where I should. Thx for any help...

Normal? I think not! Even if an old drain plug gasket was used (or no gasket for that matter) it should only cause a slow leak. Of course the dealership doesn't want to take responsibility but I think they are responsible. Did you see a lot of oil on the underside of the car?

Was the mechanic an employee of the dealership?

P.S. Next time open a new thread instead of highjacking someone else's.

I would say when I parked the vehicle for an hour it was more then 4-5oz.
My understanding the oil is changing the velocity when ever is getting hot. And I drove for 600miles in 9-10hours stoping just for fuel.
They are saying they did a down leak test showing just 20% going through the plug. I should get the paperwork from them today. Also before the oil change I drove it for 2500mile and they did not mention anything on being low on oil.

It's going to be difficult to prove the oil drain plug was the issue, but it may be worth it to contact Subaru of America (SOA) to see if they can help.
