Just got back from my third oil change at my dealer. I have been using Subaru synthetic since 3,000 miles and have no noticeable usage, now going 4,500 between changes. Cost was $48.76. As I was waiting, a lady had come in with the emission control light on in her Forester. The service manager came out and told her she was over 7,000 miles past her oil change interval, and the variable cam timing valves had started to gum up! She was running regular oil, but I wonder if this could happen even with synthetic. Moral of the story, don't go over 14,500 miles without changing your oil!
