J37A oil consumption

Hi all. I am new here but wanted to share what has happened with my issue. I had a 2008 MDX that was totalled by my mechanic and then purchased a 1 owner 2010 Tech Pkg with the Entertainment pkg. Bought with 90k miles from Carmax. After 10k miles i was using 5 quarts of oil between oil changes. St. LOUIS ACURA did the oil consumption test and came back and told me i needed $8000 worth of work. Acura good will is covering 80% and my carmax warranty is covering the other 1000 and change. They said that they have to replace the pistons, rings, valve cover gaskets, and timing belt and plugs. Does any one know if the pistons have been updated to prevent this oiling issue from happening again?
