    Oil changes?

    So from what I've been reading its ok to change your oil every 5k to 8k miles or even 10K. I have an 07 WRX and I have read that all over the rest of the world people change their oil every 8k to 10k miles in these cars and I was wonder if that is correct.

    thanks,
    Jeremy

    That's generally correct, but you don't have that option. You must change your oil every 3750 since you have an 07.

    Subaru made a mess and instead of recalling motors (an act that would cost them money) they've shortened the service interval (an act that would make them money -- even though they're responsible).

    A service interval less than 5000 mi in the 21st century is ludicrous. It's laughable and stinks of amateurism and greed. However, they've done it, and you're stuck with it.
