Just turned 72k on this little car that I really DID love. Checked the oil at 2000 miles since change....about .75 qts. low. Thought I must have under filled it at last change. About 500 miles later another .5 qt. low. Out of warranty. Up to a quart every 1200 is within Subaru's warranty limits. Googled it and found they're being sued over the 2011 through 2014s for excess oil consumption (defective oil rings see full Subaru Forester review

Going up the same steep hill, the Forester managed, but the TDI had power to spare and the difference was compelling. Forester X Ltd nice as it was just could not compete with the diesel in performance. see full Subaru Forester review

So far not impressed with reliability. High oil consumption, loud rumbling noises from engine compartment at 2200-2800 RPM, leaky cam seal. see full Subaru Forester review
