Help I need advice. I have a 2012 Subaru Forester (not turbo). It has less than 30k miles. It uses full synthetic oil. I missed one oil change (scheduled every 7500 miles) meaning it went 16k without one. (too long to explain but I am using really good with maintenance) The rod (threw or blew - not sure correct term). First, the dealer said it was covered under warranty - but now not since I missed one oil change. I have known people who have older cars and don’t change there oil “regularly.” No low oil light ever came on in my car. Should or could this really happen from not changing the oil for one scheduled time? Is it really because the synthetic oil was not changed on a car that has less than 30K?
Thanks for any insight.
