Re: 2011 Excess Oil usage
We've got 14K on our 2010 and it has never used or leaked any oil. I check the oil at every fuel fill-up, about every week and a half.
Ours also had 2500 miles on it before we put it onto the freeway for more than a few miles at a time. First oil change was at 2500 miles before a 2300 mile trip, then we had the oil changed again at 5000 and 10000. Next oil change will have me doing a UOA to see how Mobil 1 is doing in our engine, but I'm pretty sure this engine is broken-in.
Best of luck with yours.
