Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
You almost never see smoke, since catylic converters. A quart at around the 2000 mile mark is considered excelent, so I believe that you do not have an issue.
Still, it would be nice to burn zero oil, certainly my preference, but that is not how it goes. Most manufacturers would not repair a new car unless it burned MORE than a quart in 600 miles. I would not be happy at all about that.....
One thing to consider it Caster oil High Mileage blend. It is semi synthetic, and has polymers that help seals and consumption. I really like partial synthetic... I have witnessed measured improvement on several vehicles that had consumption issues.
