There must be somebody in your neck of the woods who prefers to change the engine rather than the oil.
I wouldn't doubt it. XD
Also... There was a recall for certain Toyotas having to do with bad piston rings that, among a variety of other quirks, caused an unacceptable amount of oil loss. (Apparently 1 quart every 1000 miles or less is where they draw the line, but not before). A lot of people might just take to replacing the engines instead of attempting to diagnose and fix specific issues when they start burning much oil, as many Toyotas Vibes do, especially if they can get one cheap from a scrap yard.
