I've been hearing opposite information about when to change oil first time around. My salesman told me to change my oil for time around is 3K. That's what my manual say it also. Is there a benefit changing at 1k versus 3K?
I also been reading here, a lot of people are changing their oil after reaching 1,000 miles. Is that because you finish your break in period. And do you recommend the service be done by subaru dealer or by another shop that specialized in Subaru repair/maintenance?
Lastly, is it ok to take the car for a mountain drive (up in Tahoe) which will result spending a lot at higher rpm which aren't good during break-ins? I just want to do the right thing....
By the way, I live Sacramento so I don't drive a lot on dirt road, mainly tarmac road. So the environment I live aren't severe condition but normal.
I asked all these dumb questions because this is my first ever Subaru Turbo AWD drive (my old car RSX type s and TC scion). so I new to this whole network of subaru tuners.
