Probably allows gears and engine bits to bed in. I would definitely be changing oil and filter at that time

^ agree. We had an OB diesel towing a T-Van come on a trip in the Blue Mountains (Blackfellows Hand track) straight from the showroom floor - no problems.

Thanks all for the replies. I took delivery of my Forester yesterday and indeed the manual says 1600km before towing.

Not sure ill get there in 3 weeks but I have estimated I should be around the 1200km mark by the time we are ready for our trip (which incorporates 3 day trips). Ill get the first service beforehand and we will be good to go!

Kevin as an aside I had issues with my DPF but found a fix online. The Subaru service staff said my DPF was cactus and needed replacing. They quoted me $6k to replace and said there is no way to service it as they consider it a throwaway part!!! Instead I searched online and found Opposite Lock offer a service to clean DPFs (mostly for big rigs) in an ultrasonic bath. Only cost me $400 to get to clean out and 2 year later still no dramas.
