we have a 2005 with 75K and it is burning a quart every 3000 miles. What would cause this?

My 2006 Dodge grand caravan has been losing a litre of oil every 1000 km. Since 80,000 km. The dealer said all I can do is keep an oil consumption report. I'm now at 135,000 km and still having the problem. they said it's normal to have that amount of loss. Which I think is a joke. I was told some new cars have a loss of 3 Litres between oil changes an that's normal. LOL. Not sure If I'd ever buy another one. I'd had many cars over the years and never had this problem. I went to another garage and was told it was a valve seal problem. Which will cost $1700. to fix oh joy! So I'm going after the dealer.

This problem is well known by Dodge. If you still have a warranty it should be covered. Check with a deal authorized to do warranty work. I waited too long because they told me to monitor the oil as well and wound up having them replace the whole engine.
