Have the car checked for external leaks. If none are found, have your dealer begin an oil consumption test. This involves changing the oil and filter, driving the vehicle around for awhile (several hundred miles), and retreiving information with SDS. This will allow them to calculate oil usage and determine the course of action to be taken. MB is pretty good about standing behind their engines, provided they've been properly maintained. Let us know what happens.
