2021 Outback Limited XT
So while new to this thread have read similar threads on the BMW motorcycle sites. Honestly I have seen the OEM Sabaru filter for $10 or less on-line and I plan on changing the oil and filter regularly at less than the recommended 6K miles ... will probably do around 5k. For me it is cheap insurance. The vehicle we replaced with our '21 Outback Limited XT is a '99 Ford Explorer with 243,000 miles and running like a champ with never an engine issue. It should run for another 100K or more. I changed the oil and filter every 2500 miles with Motorcraft FL-1A filter and Castrol Syn Blend oil for a total cost of about $22 for each oil change. I suspect I should be able to do the Outback change for about $35 for oil and filter. It just seems that simple to me but as always YMMV.
