Exception to the Rule?

Vehicle1998 Chevrolet Prizm LSi 4dr Sedan
ReviewMy prizm is a one owner, used, 1998 Geo
Prizm with 34K miles from a Toyota
Dealer. The car had been previously
leased so the presumption is that it
was well maintained because of lease
constraints. The car promptly lost
seven quarts of oil in 2000 miles
without burning any smoke. The dealer
says the oil rings are collapsed. The
dealer told me the problem had been
traced back to one of two factories
that produced engines for the Geo
Prizm. The cross-hatching in the
cynlinder walls allegedly was faulty
and caused premature failure to the
rings. When I called Toyota they said
no technical service bulletins had been
issued and my problem may not be
covered. I will not buy a toyota again.
