Well on our way back from the Jersey shore.. the milage reads over 70k. Time now for an oil change. And if I have less than 4 qt. Cause it's been 2k since I added a qt..it's going to dealer for oil consumption. I have suspicion about the usage since the last oil change. I will see later this Sunday when I do it.

Hope thing's go well for you, think positive.
Keep us informed if you have to go through the oil consumption test.

My 2010 2.4 used a quart every 1500 miles or so.  Always topped it off between changes.  Never had any blue smoke, never a spot on the garage floor, just used oil up.  Traded for a 2015 3.6 at 120K miles.  Not a drop missing between changes and now have 50K miles. 

Let us know how it works out!

Thnks Red.. yeah I wish I had the V6...however when I purchased my Lil used Terrain @34k mile.. the dealer made a 7k mistake on it.. bank error my favor. So that's why I took it. Looking at it now.. times I really would like the 6.. think I might go to the bone yard when the motor goes and warranty is out and get me a supercharged  motor from a camaro and rebuild it and stuff it in. Build the rear bulletproof order drive splines and shafts.. I wanna make all four tires smoke..like the Typhoons wold be able to do. The weight of it is good as it is and probably would fair nicely. We will see when the time comes.. for now this hurdle to jump.. I will keep posted of progress when there is and how it goes. I have a great relationship with Granite Run dealership near me.. their service manager really does care about customers.. and the owner is a stand up guy too.
