Not positive but I think it uses a little during break in. Keep a close eye on it however, just in case there is a problem. You are getting close to the oil change mark. After it's changed, keep an eye on the stick. Check it at least every fuel up.

yeah, keep an eye on it...and look on the ground where you park it for signs of a leak. if you find a leak, get it to the dealer for warranty service. who changed your oil the last time? or do you mean you have 2800 total miles on the car? it is possible for it to use a little oil when breaking in a new engine while all the rings and seals seat themselves.

2004 sienna never used any from day 1. now have 78000 and still not using any.
no leaks on avalon. milage is good on highway so will keep checking after oil change.
