Subaru recommends changing your 2017 WRX STI’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Subaru-recommended oil change intervals, your WRX STI may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Subaru recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Subaru WRX STI. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
