It depends on the condition of the engine. Mine has 160K on itand doesn't burn any. It has been well taken care of over the years.

mine burns about a quart every 4500 miles. i go 6000 miles between oil changes. oddly enough i just got finished changing my oil and rotating my tires a few minutes ago. the motor has about 66k miles on it. these cars do burn oil sometimes. it's normal.
