Recently picked up a used wrx, for a good deal. I skipped on a new one, with winter comming and the fact that this is my first car with a stick, I felt itd be better to get used to driving stick through the winter, then upgrade once I feel Im a better driver.
After reading up on the Subaru website I took it in for a tune-up and service. Even replaced the water pump, belts, flushed radiator and had the whole car looked over. I replaced the crank pulley since it was looking wabbly and the timing belt.
Question is, should I run synthetic oil for engine and trans at this mileage? Ive heard in the past that as the mileage goes up, it gets to a point where you shouldnt run synthetic anymore. I held out on the oil change and trans fluid drain/fill until I figured out if I should run synthetic. Any advice?
Thanks in advance, I just want to keep her running good until next year when I trade up.
