Question about 2008 Volkswagen Passat Sedan
Mileage is primarily open road miles. Dealer says this is expected. I think he is BS'ing me. I see major problems down the road. No previous new car had such symptoms. Am I getting BS? What causes oil comsumption and sooty exhaust in a new car? Are there known future ramifications?
The oil consumption could be worn piston rings or the egr is clogged and forcing oil into the air intake but that new of a car its unlikely unless someone sugared the gas tank the sooty exhaust could be from the oil consumption

Tips for a great answer:
It's sludge. Drop the pan drain the oil, clean the screen and the tube, flush the engine and use only fully synthetic oil. This is a hundreds of dollar repair but if you drive it as it is even for ten miles you'll need a new engine. This was an oversight by VW, recommending inadequate oil and it was covered under warranty but yours is out of warranty. It's been a month so you've probably already discovered all this. I can't believe no one in fixya told you right.
