The dealership completed my first oil change on my 2016 at just under 9000K miles in mid-March. I checked the oil last week at about 10,800 miles and was surprised how low it was, see the picture for reference. I was also a bit surprised how dark it was as well. Even before the oil change it was never this low or this dark.
Took it to the dealer and not surprisingly, I was told this is normal. (I'm already skeptical of the dealership for other reasons) This seems a bit off to me and the last two cars I owned (one of which was an Ecoboost Ford) never went thru oil this fast. In fact, I've never owned a car in 25+ years that burned thru a quart of oil in 1800 miles.
I have the 2.0 engine and it runs fine, no smoke or burning smell and no drips on the garage floor, so i'm stumped.
Anyone else have a similar experience or words of wisdom on this? 20170713_191730.jpg 28.77KB 0 downloads
