OIL’S NOT WELL

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Ask Smithy -

We have a 2011 Calais V Se­ries II and, as with many oth­ers, ours uses oil even though it’s only done 40,000km. Has Holden ad­mit­ted that there is a fault? When we have com­plained to our dealer they have just said to keep mon­i­tor­ing it. Also won­der­ing whether the VF is hav­ing sim­i­lar prob­lems. S. Mur­phy, email A: I’m not aware that Holden has said there is a fault with the en­gine that causes the high oil con­sump­tion; the re­ac­tion from deal­ers is usu­ally the one you got, ie, to mon­i­tor it. Ask the dealer to mon­i­tor it them­selves and if their re­sults show high oil con­sump­tion it’s much eas­ier for you to re­quest re­me­dial ac­tion. I don’t be­lieve there is any dif­fer­ence with the VF.
