I hope I am posting this in the right forum ( newby here )
Here is the story:
- in october '14 I got a new Subaru Outback (2015 model) with 2.5 engine.
- until last week it all went flawlessly- no issues whatsoever.
- Wile driving on HWY the "oil level is low ... " came up. I was just about 2500 miles from my previous oil change.
I had to stop to a gas station and get some oil in to continue the journey. It took a quart to come up at the regular level.
Today I went to the "stealership" and they told me that it is "normal" for a car that has 53k miles to "use oil".
Now, I am no rocket scientist, but if the math adds up correctly, that would be 2 qt. of oil between oil changes( ??!).
Based on your experience, would you consider the following:
a-) get rid of it - not worth the trouble
b-) try to find a dealership that would work on it ( if they want to acknowledge the issue ) ?
c-) as I have extended warranty from Subaru, run it till the wheels falls off ? and expect them to fix it in case the engine goes bust ?
Thank you in advance, and I appreciate if you can share your experience - if any .... or seen similar cases for this model.
