Hi,thanks for your question.The dealer should be starting a oil consumption test.1quart in less than 1000 miles is unacceptable.The test involves inspecting for leaks first then changing the oil,if any leaks are found these must be repaired first,then the vehicle should return in 1200 miles to see how much oil has been lost.If the amount lost is excessive and it's determined the engine is burning oil the vehicle may need a engine replacement.,keep in mind all guidelines need to be followed so a correct diagnosis can be made,thanks for your time
