Subaru Forester 2012 FAQs

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Forester 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Subaru Forester 2012: High oil consumption?

    The oil consumption is a result of the engine design, being horizontally-opposed, and it's not limited to Subaru. Oil accumulates in the rings when it's sitting and you'll sometimes see a puff of smoke from the tailpipe on start-up. It's not something to be concerned about if you check the oil on a regular basis, as you should do on all cars. Use the Subaru recommended oil when topping it up, you'll find that in the owner's manual.
