2005 Outback burning oil?

Asked by Jan 28, 2011 at 11:08 AM about the 2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 i Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife has a 2005 Outback Wagon and when I check the oil it was down a quart.  I had topped it off a week earlier before she took a trip 500 + miles - so it burned all of it in a weeks time.  I checked the exhaust and I noticed that their was oil in the drivers side exhaust pipe.  Has anyone else had a similar experience with a 5 year old outback with 88,000 miles?
