a family member wants an outback (2010-2014 range) no questions asked ... Mind is made up and I'm just trying to help. I tried to talk them into 4-Runner or RV4 but it didn't work
This is not about bashing Subaru.
Based on my recent and very limited experience with Subaru, all I've heard is they burn oil and I'm just not used to cars burning oil per design or not ...
one friend had a 2014 impreza or outback? and it burned lots of oil. He bought it new and ended up selling the car after 2 or 3 attempts by the dealer to fix ... Long story.
Another friend has a very nice looking outback but it burns lots of oil ... he bought it used with just under 60K miles on it. Can't recall the year. I think 2013-2015.
I am told anything after 2017 would not burn oil. and it had to do with some ceramic seals ... idk. The problem is we are looking for 2010-2014
Do they all (pre-2017) burn oil or just a few bad apples or is it just certain engines?
