Garage
The extended warranty for the ADS struts/shocks started for Canada first before being extended to the USA. I can't remember how soon after for the USA for the ADS system; but, I think it was around 3-8 months?

What does it say what are the conditions that must be met or what will be done to correct the issue for the oil consumption?

So they are going to fix the pistons, rings and spark plugs for this oil consumption as I was told for my 2010 mdx. I received a 2019 tlx a spec loaner and they told me it will take around 3-4 days minimum.

Please make sure to report back after the fixes. I hope they donít create a can of worms.

Got one too, how much oil are you burning during an oil cycle?

Caution:
In order to get the extended warranty I will have to do the oil consumption test and the first step is oil change ( You will have to pay for it). After the oil change I check the oil level. It is ABOVE the max mark.

Make sure your on a flat surface engine turned off for 10 minutes before checking. Recheck, if itís still above max go back to dealership and let them know. It should be between the lines not above or below.

I believe it has to consume more than 1 liter per 1000km. Mine was averaging 1.1, 0.7, 1.0, 0.9 etc.
