I love the car but it does have a couple of issues. It does burn a lot of oil, now up to 3 liters every 700 or 800 kilometers. Mine in particular is rusting pretty badly, and especially the exhaust system - I seem to have to replace a part every few years- much more than my ex used to on her 2001 CRV.

Have you tried using thicker oil? To my knowledge that does help with an engine that burns out, you just don't burn through it as fast as what's originally recommended for it.
