I wouldn't have expected this since the Germans try to be all about engineering.
all engines burn oil to a degree though, it doesn't necesarially mean poor engineering...

The average vehicle according to the report found 2 percent of its owners needing to add at least one quart of oil between changes for the 2010-2011 model years, dropping to one percent for 2012-2014.
its because direct injection engines pollute the oil much faster, which leads to the burn...

I agree that the discovery is rather surprising because German engineering has been proven to be highly efficient in terms of its technicality. They could have taken advantage of their superiority to tackle the issue of a higher oil consumption toward their own advantage and their consumers.
