    As globalhelper stated.......before it's to late , have you brought it back to the dealer for inspection? The reason I asked to be sure that it wasn't an Si model(2.4L engine) , is because they do have a bulletin out on those , for oil consumption.

    It has been to dealer but they seem not to want to belive the engine is using so much oil. do you know if the onbord compture records each time the low oil warning is given. btw the car is in Finland
