I wonder how many Compasses (what %) have the oil consumption problem? There's a couple threads on here about that. While my oil consumption is the worst of any vehicle I've had at any age or mileage it is still marginally acceptable (3000/qt). Figure in 100,000 miles I will have added 30 quarts: a nuisance and to me an unnecessary expense, but I can live with it. Some are in much worse shape than mine and for all the ruckus maybe only a dozen of us are active on those threads. I really feel for the folks who don't check their oil, assuming its a new vehicle, and get a cruel and expensive surprise.

Can a moderator set up a poll?

I have a manual Sport and a 6 speed auto Latitude.

No oil consumption issues.

AND ... if a mod does see this "Garage" pics needs a look.

Thank you,
Mark

My oil consumption virtually stopped at around ~6000 miles. For my last oil change, I drained the same amount of oil that was put in.
