I understand everyone's take on this. My thing is: it's obvious everyone has been told different from their dealership, ie.: 1000 miles break in, 2000 mile break in, yes oil change at 1000, no at 1000, 3000 mile oil change, 5000 mile oil change, 7500 mile change, and the list of constant difference in information leads me to believe no one truly knows. It is only a guess. There are wrx owners who have gone by the 1000 break in or a 2000 break in, no break in, little break in and all have perfectly running wrxs'. So, if one chosen to wait until that magical 1000 mile mark, what, does the car say to its self, Ok drive me like you stole me. I don't think so. Just food for thought for the next wrx newbie.
