But- no leaks that I can see. The tiny little oil pan is funny knowing that this holds as much oil as some big-block V8's.
do you smell any coolant when you stop the car after driving a while? i have a faint smell. my consumption is slow but i think noticeable. i haven't gone to the dealer yet (too much on my plate, but hope to do a multiple check in for warranty work with them in a couple months to look at this coolant issue, an intermittent flakey passenger front window, and misc rattles)

thankfully, mine hasn't been consuming any noticeable oil. i will try to do an accurate measurement of what comes out when i drain it in december.
