if one was to change their high quality oil and oem filter with same every 3k or 3 3/4 months (i do), and air filter every third oil change approx. the engine would be operating at top efficiency, if you wait untill it is really dirty and worn out, how long were you operating at reduced efficiency and putting more wear on the internals?
i would prefer to spend a few hundred dollars more in the end for high efficiency from a vehicle than to replace parts or know more wear is occuring when i could do 3k mi. oci's and keep it running better, cleaner and longer.
first class piece of mind is only 10% more.
if one only wanted cheap, they wouldn't drive a subaru in the first place.
i like to keep my engine clean (ex engineer, mechanic and tireman) and drive on good tires, (replaced when half worn, sell or give to less fortunate) it is all i have between the road and my butt, also replace brakes before they are worn out. (buy good parts ahead of time and have it ready for service time)
give your suby a lot of quality love and quality love comes back. just my thoughts, sincerely, tony
