Yes this is true however it is not a fatal issue with the engine and it doesn't impair performance.

The problem is that the pistons rings are ever so slightly undersized so a little bit too much Oil is let into the cylinder and gets burnt off. This just means that you have to pay a little extra for Oil but it doesn't affect anything else.

Don't be so hasty to give up on the SR. ;)

Wasn't the Oil burning issue on the 1.8 engines found in the Celica & Avensis??? blink.gif

Toyota extended (un-officially) the warranty on those engines....

Not sure it's the same issue on the 1.6....

The 1.6 has always suffered from it, one of the first things I learned when I joined here. :yes:

Good decision! :yes:

I can't see it as a problem as you should constantly check your Oil anyway. :D

Good luck with finding one.
