It definitely doesn't seem normal and I'd rather not have to hawk the oil levels in my new vehicle or change the oil more often than is necessary (every 5-6k instead of 7.5k). Has anyone with this issue seen any improvement due to further break in or is it going to be all down hill from here on out?
Chances are you are in "severe service" schedule unless you only do highway in summer temps.
