Why is my oil level so low?

Asked by HyundaiGirl99 Mar 11, 2020 at 02:06 AM about the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has been riding a little bumpy the past few days and when I checked
my oil level it was barely even on the tip of the dipstick. I got an oil change
less than 2500 miles ago so I'm not sure what is happening to my oil. I put a
single quart in and did not see much of a difference in the level. I am going to
take it tomorrow to get an oil change, but should I opt for a high mileage oil
since it has 92k miles on it? Are there any changes I can make in my driving
to make my car use less oil? What is the best place to get an oil change
affordably?

Some cars just burn oil, some leak oil, and there's nothing you can do about it. The Hyundai Sonata is one of those cars. By the way, Hyundai is NOT one of the best cars on the road. Consider trading it.
