To me that is slightly excessive oil consumption but not real bad. Many manufacturers consider oil consumption of 1 qt. per 1,000 miles or less to be normal and not qualifying for repair under warranty. I am curious to how many miles you have on your vehicle?

Is it leaking or wet in the engine compartment? Blue exhaust?
