2011 MDX OIl bad consumption!
I have a 2011 Acura MDX with 66,000 miles eating oil like crazy.
about 60% of my oil life got a notice on my dash of low oil had it changed immediately turned out there was about 1 qt left.
After that incident I read up on it and noticed that Acura has extended the warranty and they do oil consumption test to see how much oil it is eating.
They do a 3 visit 1000 mi test, first test after 1000 mi they said it only consumed 0.5 qt oil I know it was not true because before i took it in looked at the dipstick and there was no oil on it.
Before the second 1000 mi test i looked at the dipstick and there was no oil on it again, so i took it to another car shop and had them drain and measure the oil and pour it back without adding any, turned out it was 2.75 qt left, right after went to Acura and they said only 0.75 qt was missing. I told them about the independent shop that they drained it and measured it and gave me a piece of paper saying how much oil was left they kept repeating that only 0.75 Qt needed.
They told me Acura will only pay for the rebuild if it consume more than 1 qt in 1000 miles.
What do you guys think what i should do!?
I been watching this guy on You Tube Scotty Kilmer he is saying that no amount of oil being burned by the engine is acceptable he has 50yrs of experience as a mechanic.
I can't drive my car on 1 oil change because about 50% of oil life i left with not much oil and Acura don't care to fix it.
