 Description of the problemWe returned to kia dealership 3/9/2020. We were low on oil again. This was after they told us this on our previous visit 2/7/2020 it was our last oil consumption testing. Kia did a full oil and filter change at 60,689 miles. They started another 1000 mile 'oil consumption test' and sealed the dipstick, secured it with a plastic strap attached to the manifold, which the manifold gets extremely hot and could cause the strap to melt and or cause a fire.
