    Question First oil change?

    So I have read I am suppose to get my first oil change at the end of my break-in period (1000 miles), but I called the dealership and they said 5000 miles. I get my oil changes free for 3 years from the dealership but idk if they will pay for one at 1000 miles. With that being said I don't mind paying for an oil change if its what's best for the car. What do you guys recommend?

    Do what Subaru tells you, the warranty is through them. If there are any adverse effects (there won't be) from going 5000 miles between, then it's on them. I changed mine at 1000 then 3000 but I do all of my own maintenance (grease monkeys don't come anywhere near my car unless it's inspection time).

    My dealership says 5000 miles as well, but I go by what the manual says. (3750 I believe)

    Unless you drive the car like grandma I would no way in hell let the first oil change go until 5000 miles.
