DamnNissans, sorry to hear about your issues. At least you have it well documented and have made several trips to the dealer. I simply don't buy the "car will consume oil during break-in". IMO, a brand new car should have any oil loss. While every car is not built 100% problem free, major oil comsumption on a brand new engine is unacceptable. Looking at your notes it getting worse, as of 8 Jul, almost a quart after 700 mi!

My car was built in November and bought in February. I have 8,500 mi on the odo and 3,500 mi on the current oil. Fortunely, after I changed the oil at 5,000 mi the oil level was about 1/4" over full and is still that way as of 2 days ago. I honestly don't think I'll ever buy another brand new car again. The prices keep going up and the quality keeps going down. Even the Honda's I've owned had major issues. I have a few other gripes about this car but I don't want to get off the subject.
