How does the oil consumption test work on an Acura?
The oil consumption test is you go in, pay for an oil change ($44), bring it back after driving 1000 miles and they measure how much oil was burned to determine if it is in spec or not. Nothing about 3 oil changes as stated before. Was ecstatic to find this letter in the mail as my TL just crept over 125k.
