I figured the 2019 model would be all electric and not require motor oil changes anymore.On my Forester 2019 pzev it has just passed 1000, should I change the Oil now and again at 3500 or just at 3500 ??
Honda definitely uses the moly assembly lube and encourages owners not to do an early change until at least 5k miles on the factory fill; Subaru does not.I figured the 2019 model would be all electric and not require motor oil changes anymore.
Srry, your typo was too tempting... had to.
As far as your question, I think you're fine leaving it alone until 3750 miles. Personal preference really. But the factory fill oil has in it residual assembly lube used on the engine components and as such, there may be is extra molybdenum (anti-wear/anti-scuff) in it. So I'm of the school of thought that leaving the factory fill in until the normal recommended oil change interval (3750 for severe service which most city/suburban short/medium trip driving is) is okay and even buys you a better break-in.
you will need to recharge battery every 3000 miles...:biggrin:I figured the 2019 model would be all electric and not require motor oil changes anymore.
