Question about 2008 Subaru B9 Tribeca
Now I am really depressed. We thought we have a change from driving Honda and Toyota so we decided to buy a new 2009 Tribeca. My first oil change for this car was 1800 miles, after breaking in. I replaced it with 7 qts of Mobile 1 Full Synthetic. Currently, the car has 8900 miles, that is 7100 driven; unfornately, I just filled 3 qts of new Mobile 1. Luckily, I check!!! Is this normal for Tribeca? If so, this is the worst investment of a lifetime. I won't ever buy Subaru again or recommend to anyone!!!

We have a 2006 Tribeca with 165k. Was using 1 quart between changes (every 4-5k). It was suggested to us to try the thicker, full synthetic for high mileage vehicles & it made a big difference. Can't remember the brand but picked it up at Auto Zone I believe. After reading these posts I think I'll just keep my Tribeca and shoot for the stars in mileage!

I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Tribeca. I have a 2006 with 115K for miles. I use Mobil 1 and change it every 5K miles. It's always on full and never had to had oil within the 5K miles. This has been the best car I have ever owned and hearing this makes me so I don't want to trade it for a new one. One quart of oil within those miles is not normal.
