If it makes you feel better, I have a GM Certified 2008 Suburban LTZ that has the same problem at 34K miles. Brought it in to the dealer due to a rough idle, only to find out that it had oil in the #1 cylinder that foulded the plug. Today, the oil consumption test shows 2 quarts lost in 600 miles and is back to a rough idle. Dealer says they are waiting on a fix from GM, but nothing they can do about it now.
I feel like I should not be driving a car that pollutes 2 quarts of oil....every 600 miles.

WOW, 2 Quarts in 600 Miles, that is freaking crazy! Well I took mine into the shop today and was out of over 400 to have a senor in my right front tire fixed. I was told that was throwing my stabilitrak off. And I started the Oil Consumption test. The dealer told me that you should not use more than 1 quart between oil changes.
2 Quarts in 600 miles is UN_SAT!
Thanks Again.......... Mariah GM Customer Service

Back to rough idling today.
Looks like I will be stopping by the dealer to fill up with oil and top off the gas.... and change a plug. What does a NASCAR pit crew rent for?

Does GM have a spec that says you can go X-amount of miles before you burn a quart of oil? If so What do they say?

According to #01-06-01-011F: Information on Engine Oil Consumption Guidelines (Jan13,2009) - the GM accepted rate of oil consumption for engines in cars and trucks (less than 8500 LB GVW) is one quart per 2000 miles. There are exeptions for non-agressive driving, towing, high RPMs, maintenance....
2 quarts in 600-700 miles, I thought, would be a no-brainer qualification for a drastic fix for my suburban.
Massive if you think about it. If GM sold 500,000 SUVs (a portion of all their business) and each burned 1 quart every 2000 miles, and with a driver having an average of 12,000 miles a year -- my math says we would have 750,000 gallons of oil somewhere we don't want. Throw in my 2008 suburban at 2 quarts every 600-700 miles, which I am trying not to drive, and GM and I would be responsible for over 8 gallons a year (at its current unfixed state).

I think I am going to go to the dealer this week and try to negotiate on the purchase of a new suburban (not likely to have an oil leak). I may get a deal that works -which would be great, or at least I will then know what the new trade in value (damage to the value) is. Might come in handy later.

Scratch that. I want a GL450 - at least the cost is upfront. I think gmoilspill.com is an available domain name...

Now that my oil consumption test is over my dealership realizes there is a problem. and it is scheduled to go in next week. hope they are able to fix it because I love my Yukon other than it's oil problem. My Yukons name is Yukon Ron

Any update on the recall that you mentioned? I am taking mine in tomorrow and don't have the time for the run-around that other people have described.
I will sell the car instead of going through endless oil consumption test bs.
