My 2013 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium has about 120,900 miles on it now. I know very little about cars, so I have always gone to the dealership for oil changes and the majority of repairs, and my car has never had any issues beyond normal wear and tear. I’m also a very safe, relaxed driver that isn’t hard on the car (I’ve only had to replace my tires once so far), if this is relevant.
I need to look for cheaper options now and found one at a Monro service center that is offering a Valvoline Full Synthetic High Mileage oil that comes with a 300k mile engine guarantee afterwards, plus a free tire rotation. To me, this sounds amazing, as I certainly cannot afford a new engine anytime in the near future, and it could provide coverage for probably as long as I’ll have the car. However, Subaru advises against using anything with “additives,” which this appears to have. Do I need to stick with the dealership or is this a safe option? Thank you for any advice!
This is the offer, for anyone curious.
