Looking for consensus on oil consumption for 5000 miles. have 10500 miles and dealer oil change at 5K and was down a full quart..seems high for new car and not driven hard at all except a few times to go max the boost! get 27.5 mpg average as well,,, pretty easy on car. :S
looking to do my own oil change this week so will move to full synth oils Mobil 1 and change at 10K like all my other turboe cars.

Not enough to be noticed on the dip stick. Not unheard of to use that much though. What do your plugs look like?

did you check oil after they changed? Dealer took specs for the Focus SE when they first did my; wrong weight, and short of fill.

I do rememeber checking oil after they made change and it was in the range, clear though since car was 5k miles. Will be checking after I oil change to be certain. But I agree they probably used the SE oil change since car so new.. Will check plugs as well...cannot hurt.
