And you can assume this will be true for the life of the car. My guess is that if oil consumption issues don't present themselves early in the car's life (let's say, in the first 5k miles), then I wouldn't expect a well-maintained car to develop consumption issues for a very long time, if ever.

In every car I've kept beyond 100k miles, other parts of the car failed (and forced me to replace the car) before the engine failed. This fleet includes six Hondas, one Mitsubishi Galant (1989, and the most reliable car I've ever owned), and one Plymouth Voyager.

In all of these cars, the engine was running just fine when the car was sold. None were consuming oil.
