2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport used 2 quarts of oil in 2000 miles

Have recently had to add 2 quarts of oil (in 2000 miles) This is a turbo ultimate model, has 80,000 miles on od

A quart in 1000 miles is a bit much but not terribly excessive. Yours isn’t under the recall from a few years ago AFAIK. If you bought the vehicle new it should still be under the 10 yr./100k powertrain warranty.

Not sure from the wording of your post, but did you wait until it was two quarts down?

Nope, added as needed. Tks

Go to the dealer and have them do a oil usage test and get it on the record before the warranty is up .

Although you should have this investigated, keep in mind that nearly all manufacturers will officially say that this consumption is acceptable.

I believe someone posted here that some manufacturers consider a quart every 700 miles to be “acceptable” consumption. However that doesn’t make it so.
