Hi, new member based in the UK.

Just bought an 07 B9 from subaru direct, 14200 miles on the clock.
When we picked it up ( bought off the Subaru's owns web site unseen, their own vehicle with FSH ) turns out full service history is not what it seems.
It had missed it 's 1000 mile oil and filter change and it's 1st service was done 3 months and 4000 miles after the 10,000 mile service indicator as per the service booklet.

Could this lead to problem's further down the line as this is our 1st Subaru and we have taken a while to decide on this model, really like the car it is great but should we be worried?:confused:

I'd be more scared if it were a turbocharged car. It's not, so you should be less screwed :D

The flat fours/sixes made by Subaru seem to have a ridiculous tolerance for some abuse. Whether that abuse is from late oil changes or from rather spirited driving, doesn't seem to matter much.

Do you mean the first oil change was at 4000 miles or 14,000 miles?

Either one seems long for the break in oil. I'd take it back in if the break in oil was there until 14000 miles.
