Hyundai Accent
Grand Am GT

Why would a 2001 Hyundai accent with 65000 miles eat oil your car eats 2 12 quarts of oil every couple weeks and the dealer tells you that's normal which you know is not true?

When the dealer says normal he actually means it is a common

problem. Hyundai and Mitsubishi suffer from ring problems. They

burn excessive amounts of oil. To repair this you will have to

rebuild the motor and replace the piston rings. It cheaper to keep

adding oil.
