Time should reduce car's oil consumption
I purchased a Nissan Sentra in December 2001 from AutoWay Nissan. Following the manufacturer's warranty specifications, I have taken it in for routine maintenance and oil changes. At 1,400 miles, I was a quart low on oil, which I topped with 5W30. I informed the dealership of this when I went in for the 3,000-mile oil change (it was a half-quart low at that time) and was told that it is well within specs to burn a quart of oil every 1,000 miles. It was the first I had heard of anything like this.
