Here's an interesting cut and paste from an email I received this morning regarding my 11 Forester Limited:

Now granted my car has only 1,300 miles on it, it seems like the Recommended Maintenance Schedule has changed. Last week I received an email reminding me to change my Cabin Filter every 6 months or 7,500 miles which ever comes first.
Think its time to call the dealership and find out what gives ? Spark Plugs at 12,000 miles ??? New Tires every 10,000 miles ?
