Complaint - Engine

AUG 2015 HEARD A RATTLING NOISE FROM THE ENGINE. CHECKED THE DIPSTICK AND THE ENGINE WAS ALMOST OUT OF OIL. THIS WAS IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES AT 3700 MILES. I TOOK THE CAR IN AND HAD AN OIL CHANGE. I RECEIVED A NOTICE FROM HONDA ABOUT OIL CONSUMPTION ISSUES. I BEGAN THE OIL CONSUMPTION TEST WITH THE DEALER. SO FAR, TWICE IT HAS BEEN DOWN .75 QTS. OVER 5K MILES THAT WOULD PLACE THE ENGINE DOWN 3.75 QTS OR ALMOST DRY, BUT HONDA SAYS THAT'S NORMAL AND I SHOULD BE ADDING OIL MYSELF. THAT IS RIDICULOUS!!! WHY SEND OUT THE NOTICE AND EXTEND THE WARRANTY THEN. HONDA KNOWS THAT THIS IS AN ISSUE, BUT DOES NOTHING TO FIX THE ISSUE. I'VE READ THAT IT IS WORN PISTON RINGS DO TO A VCM TIMING ISSUE. WHY IS THAT THE CUSTOMERS PROBLEM? THE SETTLED THIS OWNERS OF THE V6, BUT TOLD OWNERS OF THE 4CYL TO POUND SAND. THIS ISSUE REQUIRES A RECALL. THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST HONDA ACCORD.
