I just completed the first DIY oil change on our 2018 Subaru Outback and had issues removing the oil drain plug. The oil drain plug would not budge. After trying to remove it myself with nothing but failure, my neighbor tried to remove it with no success.
We ended up bringing it to our neighborhood oil change place. He was able to loosen it after more than the usual effort required.
The Subaru dealership in Dallas stated that they have never had this happen. That no one has ever come back because the oil plug was over tightened. I hate to be skeptical but I am.
Have you guys had similar experience with dealerships overtightening the oil plug?
I think it is probable that this will happen. Just admit it, correct it and move forward.
