    Need your help.

    Picked up a 2019 Subaru Ascent the other day and owners manual says first oil change is 6 months or 6,000 miles. My plan is to change the oil at 1,000 miles to clear out all the oil after the break in period. At 6,000 miles I'll change it again to stay on schedule so I don't mess up my warranty.

    The internet says a ton of things and I can't get a good answer.

    I asked the Subaru peeps... and they're leaning towards the manual, but 3,000 miles if used under severe conditions. I keep cars for a long time and just want the best chances on this little 2.4L Turbo.

    When would you change the oil?

    Let the fighting begin...

    My experience is biased since I've only ever leased a brand new vehicle. 2017 Subaru Outback. I got a sweet deal on the lease and know I'm not going to end up purchasing it. First oil change was free at Subaru so I waited till 6k.
