I just want to add to what I said in the PM that I have never had an experience of bad oil burning with any car. I had a Mitsubishi Mirage that I sold with about 156k miles on the odo that never gave me such trouble. My sister's Civic has about 120k and doesn't burn any oil either. I really think it is a maintenance issue. As in, proper maintenance will prevent it from happening. But I really cannot know for sure.
