Another crazy experience come out today from an Italian GTI's owner and he is not the only one...
I'll translate with Google the entire message below.Engine replaced, same problems
Re: GTI - Oil consumption
Post by Blackarrow '48 minutes ago
After more than 1 year, now I think I can write some objective consideration.
My GTI has always had an oil consumption of about 1 liter every 1200 km.
After several checks, weighing, etc. .. is about 6000 km I replaced the engine.
I was hoping to go well, but it did not happen. Currently, consumption and are almost identical at an altitude of 18,000 km.
I'm sorry if you have a new engine or replaced, from what I read and from my own experience, there is no current solution and not even know what to do. Shameful!
In part goes down, surely there are some engines that have an acceptable oil consumption or limit dell'accettabile. Then subrentrano driving conditions, I noticed that when using city and short distances, consumption remains high. With the new engine, after the first 1200 km (and a topping of 1kg!), I then traveled about 3800 km before needing to add another kg of oil. Kilometers traveled mostly on the motorway and long journeys.
Then definitely the type of use influence consumption. Another strange thing already said, is that you can travel hundreds of miles without the level drops a lot, then suddenly ounces of oil are burned in just about anything.
The fact is that we have a car that goes to the mixture and that the parent is not able to solve this malfunction.
My heart breaks, because performances of the engine are a masterpiece, as well as the Dsg.
Among all the gallons of oil made at my expense, mileage and time lost to checks and inspections and the car stopped about 10 days (without replacement vehicle) there is something to be really disappointed and angry!
Now starts the usual rigmarole of checking the consumption, then weighing, etc. .. but to what end? To change again the engine??
