So the saga continues as i have heard back from the dealership after the second and final run for an oil level check up.
Turns out that there is still oil burning in the engine, which now i am a alittle over a quart short after 2000 miles into my last oil change. According to the dealership, i was told that according to the owners Manual, it is COMPLETELY normal for the car to burn oil as long as it is not burning more than one quart of oil per 600 miles. if that is the case, then that would be grounds for either repairs and possible coverage in warranty. At this present time, the dealership does not have a case in order to proceed with the aftermarket warranty.
Anyway, has anyone heard of this crap? I have not looked through the manual since i have misplaced mine. Can anyone help with this?? please advise.
I am so over this crap, i am at a breaking point of trading in this puppy.

It does indeed state that in the owner’s manual, specifically; anything over 1.1qt per 600 miles is considered excessive and you should visit your Lexus dealer.. etc. Unfortunately, some engines just use more oil than others, which I’m sure is frustrating to no end, but it doesn't necessarily mean there’s anything wrong with it.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.
Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.
well, the manual didn't exactly say it's normal, just that if the car consumes more 1.1qt per 600mi, you need to take it to the dealer. I won't consider that normal though, since that means you'll be out of oil before the next oil change.
I think i wil hold on to the car a few more months and deterimine how much consumption is actually taking place. In the event that it is consuming more than what should be allocated, i will go in and raise hell in hopes that they finally see that the engine is in need of repair. Keep your fingers crossed for me
dang never heard of this before... why not try and fix the problem with the dealership now instead of waiting a few months ? Ive had some issues in the past with my car regarding TSB which they told me drive it for a few months then if it happens bring it back needless to say either that rep is gone or magically there was no notes in the system....

ive tried to develop a case for the warranty company by doing oil checks the first 2000 miles. I was going every 1000 to determine how much oil consumption was taking place. Overall, i was losing about .75 quarts of oil every thousand miles. My adivisor was on my side and fought tooth and nail until the mechanic told her that it was nothing out of the ordinary since it clearly states in the owners manual that not enough consumption is taking place. Advisor basicaly told me that nothing can take place. So fustrated.
Should i get a second opinion? Read my other post on the "IS250 burning oil'?
