My MY14 will turn 30K miles this next week.
Next oil change is due in about 1K.
The consumption test will begin at that time.
I was at the dealer to have my broken lumbar support repaired earlier this week.
While I was waiting, I addressed the consumption issue with a couple of the service writers. One guy told me he wasn't aware of any 2.5's that they had to fix. Just the 2.0's in Legacy's and Crosstrek's.
The same guy told me I should just run thicker oil. I mentioned voiding the warranty, and he said that no one would no any different.
He also stated that they would try a re-ring first and if that didn't take, a new short block. My fingers are crossed that it just turns into a new short block.
This is going to be interesting.
Edit to add that after reading the above in this thread, that the guy was also clueless about the new FSB.
