Low oil light

I have a 2018 Tiguan SEL premium 4motion that I bought brand new July 2018. On November 23 with 3200 miles the low oil yellow light came on. The dealer put in two quarts of oil. Then proceeded to tell me it probably came off the truck with low oil. (BS). They check for leaks didn’t find anything then even changed my oil. On May 10th 2019 with 7200 mileage the same thing happened again. Low oil warning light came on. They put a quart and half in. The man told me well your car just burn up oil there’s no leak. Is this a normal thing!? Has anyone has any problem with oil levels? Any help or suggestions. Someone please tell me I’m no going crazy for thinking this isn’t a normal thing.

Depending on how your car was broken in,may of made a difference.There is a page in the manual that explains what VW.,considers normal oil consumption.You may want to be more proactive by checking oil more often,don't wait for the light.Get the proper oil from the dealer,you can't find it at the parts houses.Also document ,in case it gets worse,and warrenty issue comes up.Good Luck!
