    Before the engine rebuild, my car was burning 1 qt. every 760 miles. 06 STS V-6. Just returned from Florida with a round trip of 3,300 miles. With 27% oil life left have not used any oil. Did have to replace my front brake pad due to one pad came apart. NAPA gave me a free set of ceramic pads. I had 46,000 on them. Danny

    Did he go to a new vendor for the oil change? I was surprised when they told me my 06 STS took 8 quarts of synthetic. Maybe someone thought it only needed 4 qts to fill? I'm about a qt low after 10K, but I have a small drip that I haven't chased down yet.

    Re: For people who DONT check your oil...

    The 'CLICK HERE FIRST' thread has links to several threads recommending regular 'exercise' of the STS N*. I agree. My car runs great after such treatment. Likewise with extended aggressive driving that includes elevation changes that encourage compression braking.

    Keeping those rings moving as designed.
