Subaru 2013: I have a 2013 Subaru Legacy. The oil light came

Customer Question

I have a 2013 Subaru Legacy. The oil light came on just as I was pulling into my parking garage. Can I safely drive it 4 miles to the nearest oil change place?

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay. I recommend checking the engine oil level to see if it is low.If found low it does need topped off before driving it this far.If the engine is making any noises as well with this issue I do not recommend driving it like this as this will cause internal engine damage with the engine needing repaired.If you cannot check this yourself it is best to have someone do this before running the engine anymore or have it towed to a dealer or service center for inspection. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete
