As you may or may not know, there are issues with the newer models from about 2011 to 2016 with oil use that can lead to a wrecked engine.
My V70 uses a quart in maybe 1500-2500 miles maybe. I never paid any attention to that, the car is 18 years old with about 115,000 miles so it needs oil every now and again like any old car.
Is there any issue with stuck rings with these old cars like the new ones? I can give it a treatment if so. Otherwise buying a quart of oil every 2 months is not exactly a hardship. The car otherwise runs just fine.

20 oz every 1000 miles of calcium-rich Red Line via valve seals resulted in a burn exhaust valve. At least don't put in oils with high calcium content, or chunky cement deposits will be everywhere.
