Low oil level... under 14k miles

The first time I had to replace a quart of oil, the car was at 4K miles.

I rarely drive the car, but today received another low oil message.

Anyone else experience this??

car and driver's long term car ... they had to do it twice in the first 10k. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...y-maintenance/

I've always been told that cars with turbos need a little oil, but if it gets to be really often theres probably something wrong...

I had a b8 audi a4 years ago, that at first it was maybe every 5k miles it needed a quart, and 3 years into it, it was more like every 600 miles.... and well there was a class action lawsuit that the pistons on that car were defective.
