Less than 1k miles & used 2 qts oil

I've got less than 1k miles & almost used 2 quarts of oil. 75% of this was varied highway speed (55 to 75 mph) the remainder was commuting to work (6 miles city, one way). During my highway speeds of 55 to 60, the computer indicated I was getting 32 MPG.

I failed to check the oil before taking delivery from the dealer which was my mistake so I'm not absolutely sure it's leaked or burned it. BTW, no leaks on the driveway.

Has anyone else experience this much oil consumption?

Also, what brand/type of oil comes in these engines? The owners manual says synthetic. Or, should I buy from the dealer?

Taking it back to the dealer is a good idea

I was just going to add oil, but taking it back to the dealer is a better idea.


Good advice. What oil consumption are the rest of you experiencing

Can anyone chime in on their oil consumption within 1000 miles?
