No choice but to pull the heads, have them checked and machined then replace all the top end gaskets


Google "Subaru Oil Consumption" This is from another thread: Update on the 2016 Subaru Forester – it is currently at the dealership (they asked me to come back) and apparently the service manager is trying to build a case in order to speak to Subaru of America. If this does not pan out, I am taking this to SoA in New Jersey – and I will be completely up for a second class action lawsuit. Let’s try to create a list of customers having the same problem so we have collective evidence that Subaru did NOT fix the piston ring problem. You can email me at jc.wms.69@gmail.com. Please make the subject line, “Another Unhappy Customer” so I know it is not spam. Just describe the problem you are having. These are not idle words for me. I owe $8000 grand on this car and cannot afford to just dump it and buy a new one. Subaru needs to be held accountable, apparently, again.
