Any folks in here have a higher mileage N line? Any oil consumption issues? Have you had to add oil in between oil changes? How much?

Came across this video in the sante fe section that doesn't exactly inspire confidence. I realize that's the NA engine, but as I understand it, that and the 2.5T are still based on the similar design.

I've heard about possible oil leaks with the 2.5T engine, mostly documented by the Korean community, though.

If you are worried about it, I would check the dip stick when the engine is warm and see where the level is at.

Great... I hope they fixed this issue but on other post on this forum that doesn't seem to be the case. I wonder if they will fix this issue with a recall or with the second year GTs.

Is this related to the recall for the fuel pipe? Or will it be a 3rd recall for the GT?

No, I don't believe so. The fuel pipe issue is pretty recent compared to the oil consumption issue, which also affected Korean K5 owners.
