WRX Turbo uses 1 litre of oil every 1000 kilometers.
My son has a WRX Turbo, and has been told by the dealer that the Turbo will use about 1 litre of oil for every 1000 kilometers. I thought that didn't sound right, but I have never had a car with Turbo.

oil consumption of say 1/2 litre in 5.000miles would be normal even 1 litre in 5.000miles would be ok but any thing else is staring to be excessive. Oil consumption is an indication of a problem with the oil control rings and valve stem seals . Add to that your statement of a knock coming from the exhaust I would be inclined to have a compression test done to determine the condition of the engine . I consider 65.000 miles to be a little young for bad oil consumption so with the noise I would suspect a broken ring and a scored bore

Not normal, clean burning engine, mine has 220,000 kms's. Are you using a full synthetic oil? Tried it a couple times and it took 1 litre between oil changes. I use semi synthetic oil, no issues. How long has it been burning this amount of oil? Get to your dealer and have him fix your engine.
I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.
i have an 05 sti. its the same motor as the 09. you definitley want to use a high quality full synthetic oil 5w-30. check the level often because it is normal for this car to burn a little oil do to the turbo. especially if you start making performance mods.
