    Car and Driver recently had an article detailing their 40k miles of experience with a GT350. They went on and on about how wonderful the car was, and honestly I agree with that assessment.

    They briefly mentioned how much oil they had to add between oil changes over the 40k miles: 21 quarts. No other car they have tested has been anywhere close to that much oil consumption.

    I wondered why that did not dampen their enthusiasm for the car.

    I also wondered what their break-in procedure was.

    Patience comes with age, so I was able to resist getting too crazy until 1500 miles. I do not have an oil consumption issue so far with approximately 14.5k miles. Oh, and I don't baby it anymore.

    They alluded to their break-in here: "Obeying the 1000-mile break-in period by not revving the engine sky-high took painful restraint. But once we got past it, the GT350 clicked off a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.2 seconds and ran the quarter-mile in 12.4 at 118 mph."

    They report 21.5 quarts in 40,000 miles. That's one quart every 1860 miles. Much, much better than some. And they admitted they drove it pretty aggressively.

    Glad to hear you're at 14.5K with no issues!
    2019 GT350 - Finally arrived!
    2014 Mustang GT - Great car! Hard to see her go!
    1965 Mustang Fastback - Wish I still had it!
