"BURNS a QUART of SYNTHETIC OIL EVERY 6,000 MILES. I'M OLD SCHOOL. IF A VEICEL BURNS OIL, ITS TIME TO GET RID OF IT. NEW 2013 2014 AND POSSIBLY 2015 SUBARU'S ARE SOLD LIKE THIS AND COSTUMERS ARE NOT TOLD THAT THEY NEED TO ADD QUARTS OF OIL PRIOR TO THEIR SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE OIL CHANGE. I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT THE SUBARU IF I KNEW THAT A HEAD OF TIME!!!!!! LIKE THE AWD CAR BUT I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE ENGINE DAMAGE!!!!"

Pleasantly Surprised

"Bought 2011 premium with CVT transmission with 35,000 miles in March of 2014. Car currently has over 41,000. I have taken it on a two out of state road trips with each trip averaging over 500 miles round trip. Car handles really nice on the road. Super responsive when you need it to be. Great gas mileage. I am still getting used to the sound and behavior of the cvt transmission. My only gripe with this vehicle is the handling in corners. The rear end is bouncy and at times just seem plain unstable. I don't know if it is fair to compare the handling to my volvo, but the handling just doesn't compare."

"Just a very fun SUV for Oregon mountains. Handles exceptionally well (I've had many sports cars and like this better on curvy mountain roads). Only complaints are inadequate interior lights; Zero/20 motor oil which disappeared at 1 quart each 3000 miles until I changed to 5w20. I own bigger 4wd vehicles but none approach this drive ability or comfort. Dual power heated leather seats are nice too. I get 31 mpg overall but My wife gets only 25! Crash test ratings have been exceptional as well."
