After buying an 08 Tundra that has proved to be FAR less than perfect I decided to give Toyota one more chance. Now I'm very sorry that I did.
My wife's new Matrix has about 2500 km's and upon checking the oil tonight, it was down almost 1 1/2 liters. I honestly feel like throwing up. I thought the oil usage was addressed in '09. The dipstick is difficult to get a true reading on due to smearing, but I literally checked it 20 times (probably more) just to be sure. I still can't believe it.:sad3d: According to the manual this is considered "normal". I DON'T THINK SO !
Anybody else got a problem with oil usage in a 2010 1.8??

Rings are seating in the first couple thousand km. It will use some oil. This is not unusual for any vehicle. Oil usage should be reduced after the first oil change.
