I know that you don’t want to hear this… But you should probably consider trading in that vehicle.
@OP - I am thinking that a quart at 2500 miles is high. I’m comparing this to my vehicles, I burn less than a quart every 10k miles.Who?
My car works fine and uses no oil whatsoever. I just want to keep it that way.
@ captain obvious. The title of the post said “high” - high and normal are two different things. The point of my post was that I thought a quart at 2500 was high, and that something else might be wrong.Uh, the point of his post was that he was able to reduce consumption from a quart every 2,500 miles to now not having burned any oil in 1,500 miles.
Not necessarily… My point was that those additives aren’t permanent fixes. Therefore the issue might return. That said I suggested trading in the vehicle to avoid an expensive repair bill later on.You are correct, burning a quart of oil every 2,500 miles is probably high consumption, but here is the title of the thread:
Repairing High Oil Consumption with Fuel and Oil Additives - 6 month update - it works!
He indicates that he was burning a quart of oil every 2,500 miles and since he added the treatment he hasn't burned any oil in 1,500 miles.
So your brilliant observation is that since his car has oil consumption he should trade it in. Note to the reader: His car doesn't have oil consumption anymore.
Please keep keep enlightening us with your pearls of wisdom.
I feel your pain. I have been disappointed with their quality and durability as well. A few high profile and expensive issues on the SPAs have me concerned.Honestly I am disappointed with Volvo's quality. This car has had fuel injector issues (thankfully while still under warranty), electrical problems (parasitic draw that would drain the battery in a week, I "fixed" it by bypassing the Sirius module with a MOST loop), oil consumption issues, and transmission issues.
