02 1.8 (2000 - 2002) Worried About Engine Oil Issu - ardz
Hi guys,

I'm buying a gen 7 only able to spend about 3500 so I'm limited to 2000 - 2002 reg ones. I'm extremely worried about the excessive oil consumption issue - the ones ive looked at have been from dealers and everything looks ok when I've looked at the engine/oil/dipstick. I am worried however that if I purchase one I'll have this issue later on to the point where im actually considering not buying it (which is a shame because it really is the most fun car I have ever driven sad.gif ).

Did this problem affect all pre 03 models or was is just a 'bad batch'?

Thoughts or advice when purchasing much appreciated.
