    Hey subby lovers,

    When i have my car i go change the oil every 3000- 3500 but after i received this new manual from Subaru, i havent get my car to oil change yet (now its around 4400.) so am I save till i hit 7,500?

    thank you!!

    Yes you should have received an addition to the manual that says that oil changes are at 7500 miles & that only Subaru synthetic oil should be used for all turbo engines.Yes,your first oil change should be at 7500 miles.Only make sure that they use the right oil.

    Either way...keep an eye on your oil level. Thats a long time without changing the oil and could go low. Its natural.

    Do not assume anything. Ask that they use the correct oil and get a written receipt stating they did so.
