I'm curious to know how many owners of '11-'16 1.4T Cruze's have low or no oil consumption and are still on the original turbo. To keep stat summary easy, please first post oil consumption range (let's say 1 for no oil consumption, 2 for a quart every 3,000 mi. +, 3 for more than a quart every 3,000 miles, and 4 for zero consumption but with a replacement turbo). Also give your odo. mileage, OCI if not following the OLM, and what oil if you stick with a particular one most of the time.

1.
96K, 5K OCI, over 75% Valvoline Synpower.

This is somewhat unrelated to your question, but I recently saw a new Cruze (2017 I believe) that was billowing blue smoke. I assume it blew the turbo.

Or something. Haven't heard that the new DI 1.4T is giving people a lot of trouble, but lemons happen.
Nice, wwillson.

I would bet a huge % of people do not service their cars at proper intervals.
