    This id definitely a huge improvement over previous years however Direct Injection is needed. The timing chain is also a drastic improvement, less prone to failure. I only wish they would do something better with the XT (5 speed anyone?)

    id stick to the 5w30 until the motor breaks in. 0w20 is very very thin. factory filled it with 5w30 for a reason

    Just purchased a 2011 Forester and was told that it was shipped with 5w-30 oil in the crankcase. The manual recommends ow-20 synthetic oil and that is also stamped on the oil fill cap. Which oil should I use in the first oil change?

    What about a telescopic steering column?!
