I have had a KNOWN issue with my Subaru Forester. The oil light doesn't work correctly and and by the time it comes on my oil is down by 2-3 quarts. I was told before they will fix it, I need to come in every 1,000 miles for a check. The issue is, it never seems to be more than a quart down when I come in, and that is acceptable. I live 45 mins to an hours away from TriCity, so when the light goes on and I have it checked and it is 2-3 quarts down, I have to have it replaced. This is always when it's a few hundred miles over the 1,000 mile check. And best part of it all.... The Subaru call center just told me that if the car gets to 100,000 miles I am screwed! They won't help or fix it at all.
Subaru is making me take the fall for their KNOWN issue! DON'T BUY SUBARU!!!!!!!!!!!!
