Bought car under Starmark warrenty. 39k miles. Right out of the
gate it uses about a quart of oil per ~2k miles, i.e. I have to add
(= half the total oil, engine takes 8 qts) during the 10k mile service
I think this is pretty bad. However, MB claims that their service
spec specifies that any oil consumption less than 1 qt. per ~700 miles
is normal!!!! And, they say that BMW and other german makes have
What do the experts think about this?
Has anyone had similar experiences, and had any positive experience
MB on this issue? If so, what might the source of the problem be?
Not sure I geel good about seing the oil light go off 4-5 times during
service interval. Dont expect this from a Lexus or Acura!
