Well, i did my bit to check about the usage of the car and it was maintained in pristine condition. The past owner was an Australian Indian and he used the car with extreme care. I checked the service records and he went overboard to maintain the car. Every service of his included all the regular service tasks and more than that it included all the fancy treatments possible i.e.(AC Treatment, Engine Bay treatment, 3M Germikleen treatment etc.). The service records were also intact. After buying the car, i replaced the tire and during that time too, i checked about the condition and the service engineer told me that the car has been maintained in a good condition. I will fight this out with Toyota if its a problem with the engine. Luckily, i have a close friend who is in a leadership level of Toyota Kirloskar Motor(TKM) and if needed, he can help me escalate this to the highest level.

Until this is resolved, i will understand the trend of Oil consumption and carry with me a can of engine oil in the car(may be a 5L can). This way, it might add up another 2000/3000Rs in my maintenance but should work out fine
