How much oil consumption is ok?
I want to buy 2011 Avalon with 98K miles. Owner says it burns between 1/4
and 1/2 quart reg oil in 5000 miles. I have been reading other questions about
PCV valve and air filter replacements...will that do it? Change to synthetic oil?
Car is at questionable dealership-couldn't trust them with answers. Carfax
shows regular oil changes at 5000+ or -.
The bottom line is don't buy the car, it's a car that's only 5 years old and is burning that much oil. A car really shouldn't burn or use that much oil/ http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2015/06/excessive-oil-consumption/index.htm
A 1/2 quart in 5,000 miles is nothing. New cars can use more than that. How would the dealer know how much oil it uses?
