Since the one time I had to top up the oil I haven't had to do it since. Maybe I was driving her to hard at the time. I have been known to be a little heavy with the right foot while on the highway.I also have a 2004 Jetta. It has 33000 miles on it. I too have to add a little oil every now and then. I know what you mean when you say that it concerns you. I am in the same boat. Most of the other people here have posted that they do not have to add any between changes. All of my miles are highway. I change my oil and filter every 10000 miles. I change the filter only every 5000 miles.
Just found this post but still don't think something's right with my wife's car ...
No point? When you are in 5th gear at 4000+ RPM, what do you do? There is no 6th.Word of caution: If you run the car at full throttle regularly you will have bigger problems than oil consumption, plus there is no point in this because the power drops off way below "redline".
My new PD Jetta burns a bit less than 1 quart every 10,000 miles. I'd say 1 every 6500 is getting into the "excessive range" You are likely blowing it out the ccv into the intake tract.
J - is this a typo? Where / how did you get Castrol's 506.01?I used less than 1/3 quart of 505.01 in 5000 mi, And I got my Castrol <font color="red">506.01</font> yesterday and plan on my first oil change this weekend
