Seeing as someone else has bumped the thread.Hi all.
I still have a 2010 Kia Cerato. It's still good as new and has never missed a beat. Not a single failure besides for a battery in 11 years of ownership. It seems like the good run may be coming to an end. Up until now, the car has never needed oil between annual services.
In the last 6 months (+/- 6000 KM), I have had to top up the oil twice. It's not due for a service until June.
Any reason for concern or take it in asap for some preventative work or just a symptom of age?
It's got 150 000 KM on the clock. Car feels fine, no smokey exhaust or anything.
Car was serviced at Bosch in May and I mentioned it needs oil top ups. They found nothing wrong and said its fine in older cars. The car needed oil last week (5 months / 4500 KM later) so looks like I will just need to monitor it every few months. The plan was to replace the car but ended up buying a house instead so the car needs to hang on for a wee bit longer.
