Hi

Bought a 98 Golf Mark IV 1.4 last month was wondering what is the norm oil consumption??

It had an oil filter changed when i bought it.The oil light came on after about 700miles checked the dip stick and it was bone dry so perseumed the idot dealer never filled it up with oil fully !!! i have put 3.5 litres into into it and done another 450 miles (some of them hard) and the oil on the dip is half way.
i only got 1000 miles warranty but now dealer is saying mark IV drink oil and to just keep an eye on it

any thoughts

Thank
Bryan

As paudie said, those 1.4 mk4 golfs guzzle the oil,

so much so my brother bought one in jan from a dealer, and after a month he gave it back..

due to problems with the rings, they are notorious for it..

got a 320bmw coupe instead..

happy chappy now..
