Just to let everybody know, make sure you check your engine oil. I checked mine today to find it has gone below the minimum level after just 2,100 miles! :blink: I'm very shocked by this at such low mileage. There was no warning light either poping up so please, check your oil once a week before it's too late.

Took the car down to ford, and they said they don't know why it used up so much oil. Theres no leaks, and my driving style wouldn't affect it. Looks like another problem.....oh goody....! :angry: Ford said just to check it every week and see how it goes and report back

Been browsing the forum for a while, saw this topic, thought I'd check mine.....

2800 miles and it's drunk enough oil to put it half way between the max and min! Never had that with any other car that I've owned! Will just have to keep an eye on it I suppose :unsure:
