My 1999 Forester always shows/showed the oil level as full++ after a change,
even back when I used to change it myself and knew how much oil I put in.
I've no understanding of why the (factory) dipstick always read high,
but have never experienced a problem that resulted from too much oil.
Owned it since new - at 230,000 now.
