Wondering how long is reasonable life span of a well maintained 2.4 Theta GDi engine ? We've driven Toyotas and Hondas so long that 250,000 is not unusual. So what is your experience with high mileage Hyundais?
Appreciate your honest responses.

my engine died on me at 125k miles and needed a new engine replacement. Turns out it was due to a recall problem so it was covered in the warranty. I have a 2011 2.4l Gdi engine and the new engine is running great

My 2015 2.4 Theta GDI engine was replaced at 68,000 miles for consuming 1/2 gallon of oil per 1,000 miles. It now has 124,000 miles and I have to refill 3/4 gallon of oil between oil changes every 5,000 miles. Hyundai assures that this consumption is normal and refuses to replace the engine once again.
