I have been talking to HONDA Customer Service and they are taking a loosey approach that it can be normal to loose a quart of oil every 1,000 miles. I am not happy with their response or lack of.
Does it make sense that after 5,000 miles i would be out of oil - if I follow the "every 1,000 mile it is normal to losse a quart of oil"?
I expected a better response or resolutionf rom HONDA.

Virtually every car make sets the standard at one quart per 1000 miles... Would I be happy with a car that used that much oil? Well, not one that was built in the last twenty years...
But, that's what you are up against....
I have a car right now, that seems to be using about a quart every 4000-5000 miles, and that doesn't make me very happy, either... Especially since this is the 4th car in a row with basically the same engine... and, none of the others have used a quart in even 15K miles....
(also, I think you are supposed to add a quart, when you are low... not, wait to run out after 5000 miles.. )

Does the Pilot have a low oil indicator light?
