My sales rep told me to check my oil because "these new engines use a lot." What I heard is New engines use a lot of oil, and that I knew. With 20/20 hindsight, I should have heard These new type engines will continue to use a lot of oil for a long time to come, maybe forever. Its kinda like the transmission maintenance schedule. Most people don't think their CVT is being used in severe service but if you read the fine print, below 32F qualifies a CVT for more frequent tranny service.I don’t think dealerships are making an effort to inform customers about the consumption issue during oil changes.
If there was a warning in the owners manual it would be lost in the 10,000 pages of other information.
