Talking to non gearhead types, I find the consensus is that you don’t have to check your oil if you get your oil changed on time.
This worked out OK for most people as long as the oil change interval was 3000 miles, but today’s 7000 to 10000 mile oil changes are creating engine failures for people who don’t check their oil.
Most manufacturers consider a car burning a quart of oil every 1200 miles normal and not in need of repair. My 2012 Toyota Camry manual says " burning one quart of oil in 700 is not excessive. Yes , that is 700, not a typo.
The OP claims it was poor desigh that it was poor design that killed his engine, but if he does not check his oil, he does not know.
After all, most Hyundai engines don’t fail. If it is a design flaw and a new engine is doomed to quickly fail, why would you want another one?
