I have a Subaru Outback 2014 2.5i Limited. Would mine be considered to be under that warranty as well? Do you know how I would go about getting my dealership to consider giving me an honest, true oil consumption test? I'm so frustrated I am ready to go to the local news station to have them help me out.

if you think you are having a consumption issue, and your local dealer is not handling it properly,

call the subaru 800 # and ask for a case to be opened and for another dealer.

(some of these depend on vin#, and if the engine used was in the bad sequence).

I have a 13 legacy and it's running Amsoil SS, and I have not see any consumption of oil yet. I am going to check this out.

Apparently the excess oil use problem was fixed in 2015 or earlier and the latest advice I have seen is that they honour warranty on any model up to and including the 2015 models.
