#64 of 65 2008 tribeca oil issue
Sep 01, 2010 (8:17 pm)
I am using a qt of oil per 1000 miles - both the dealer and subaru say this is within the tech specs but it doesn't seem right to me
Has anyone had issues with the tribeca consuming that much oil?

This won't make you feel any better but that is widely considered the industry standard.
Are you using the correct grade? You may even want to consider a switch to synthetic, which may not burn off as much.
Also check the block for oil leaks - the head and valve cover gaskets, and front main seal, and the rear main seal.
