Hi

I have a new rio 61 plate. It's done about 10000 miles. I check the engine oil regularly.

Last night driving home the oil level light came on. I checked this morning and the oil level is only just on the dip stick. I took it into kia and they have topped it up. I have to wait 2 weeks before my car is booked in.

I cannot see any oil on the floor where I park. Has anyone had a similar problem? What happens if its not a leak and the oil is being burnt off?

Thanks

I would think with oil being burned off you would see blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. In either case you should monitor it. That should be a warranty case.

I would guess it depends on the amount of oil that is burned. I have seen cars out there where it is very obvious, you can even smell it. But these cars are usually rather old where you think that they wouldn't make it much longer anyway.
