Auto Defect Law Group is investigating Volvo excessive oil consumption potential class action lawsuit on behalf of owners and lessees of Volvo vehicles that are prone to excessive oil consumption.
Volvo Excessive Oil Consumption Details
It has been alleged that consumers with certain Volvo vehicles are experiencing excessive engine oil consumption at levels that require the addition of significant engine oil between Volvo’s recommended oil change intervals.
But in a Consumer Reports’ 2014 Annual Auto Survey found that several auto manufacturers are building engines—available in a number of widely sold models—that require frequently topping off the oil reservoir between recommended oil changes. Excessive oil consumption is a worry and cost that a new-car owner shouldn’t have.
It has also been alleged that consumers who present their vehicles to Volvo for repair are informed that engine oil consumption is considered normal and are denied warranty coverage for the necessary repairs.
How much oil consumption is too much?
If a Volvo owner has to add a quart of oil once per month, that can mean adding up to 7 to 9 quarts of oil between oil changes. Those costs due to excessive oil consumption can add up, since most automakers require synthetic oils that can cost upwards of $9 per quart or more.
