#1 of 5 2011 Legacy/synthetic oil
Dec 05, 2011 (11:40 am)
Does anyone know if 2011 Legacy comes new from the factory with synthetic oil? Owners manual recommends synthetic but wondered if synthetic was installed at the factory.

I was told my 2012 OB 3.6 had synthetic already installed, and that it was "recommended" that I continue to use it. Not sure if that's 100% true, but only what salesman told me...would love to here from others...

FYI - my 2010 Legacy 2.5 did NOT ship with synthetic oil but I switched to full synthetic. I have 47,000 miles on it and plan to go the long haul!

Which engine is in the car? The EJ25 does not come from the factory with synthetic.

Not an issue, just had my first oil change to synthetic.
