Excessive oil consumption

Several ideas.
1) When the dealer completed servicing it, did you check the oil to see if it was full? If it wasn't it would need added oil sooner.
2) .9 litre does sound excessive, but what was it using before?
3) Find a way to give the bottom side of your Toy a really good flashlight inspection to look for leaks and seepage.
This should give you a clue as to what is going on.
If it is dry underneath, someone needs to check the oil weekly until a pattern is established of oil usage.
Be blessed.

That usually is a worn CV joint. Go to a smooth surface like a parking lot, wind the windows down, and turn slow circles on full lock. If you hear that noise, it is probably the CV joints and not ball joint noise, since you are not going over bumps.
Also look at the CV rubber boots (2 each side) to find any splits in them. Those let grease out and dirt in, and rapidly end the life of a CV joint.

The individual joints can be replaced, but it isn't worth it. If worn out, get a complete re-manufactured front axle each side.

It is possible that the ball joints are bad.
Was there any noises, steering, handling problems before this?
The ball joints may not have been properly lubed during preventative maintenance. The rubber boots may have developed a leak, depleting the grease needed for the joint.
In any case, you may get a second opinion at another shop.
Usually you can look at the joints and pry up between the ball joint on the lower arm and the steering knuckle to gauge the play of this joint.
Jack-up and properly support the vehicle on jack-stands.
Engage the emergency brake.
Remove the front tires.
Lock the front wheels by removing the Key from the Ingnition.
Remove the Brake: Calipers and Rotors to gain better sight of the ball joint and lower steering knuckle connection.
Carefully inspect the ball joint seals for tears and leaks of grease.
Using a prying tool, carefully insert it between the ball joint and steering knuckle avoiding tearing/splitting the ball joint rubber seal; and pry up and or down looking for any play.
If there is play, the ball joint is worn and must be replaced immediately.
If there is no play, the shop was "upselling" you something you did not definitely need.
If the Ball Joints appear to be void of grease: Using a grease gun - lubricate the ball joint using the nipple located on the bottom of the ball joint.
Make sure you check both left and right sides.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Knocking sound when i turn, mostly turning to the right, changed driveshaft and no joy, any ideas?

Sound like you might need balls joints, control arms..etc.. or the CV joint is bad. Take into a Service center Not a dealership. They only rip you off.. And ask for the front end to be checked for bad ball joints etc..And ask about the CV joints.. The boots around the CV joints that keeps the water and dirt out and also hold the grease can be cracked and will let the grease out and will let the dirt and water in and cause the joint to pop and go bad...Hope this helps

it sounds like a ball joint which is located by the wheel. jack up that wheel and try to move it side to side and up and down by hand. If it moves then your ball joints are bad. You can do the work yourself, however you will need a ball joint press. If it is a ball joint I would get if fixed quick, when a ball joint breaks the wheel will either lay over sideways or go up and rip the fender off the van.

Could be your upper and lower ball joints. squeeze the boots and see if you can feel any grease inside. With 160k miles it may be time to change them. Sway bar links and tie rod ends also have rubber boots protecting their ball joints.
