"08 Accord burning >1 quart / 1000 miles driven

I own a 2008 Honda Accord that has been burning oil. It has equaled out to be approximately >1 quart per 1000 mile driven. From what I am being told - from Honda of America as well as the local Honda dealer - is that this amount of oil consumption is ACCEPTABLE! This alone furiates me. This tells me that Honda has no faith in their engines. A new car....actually a car in general, should not burn ANY oil - let alone 1 quart per 1000 miles. And then to be told that this is acceptable... I even work at Honda - and can't believe this. This would mean that by the time I am in need of a routine oil change - there would be NO oil left in the car! I have never owned a new car that I have had to add oil to in between services. UNACCEPTABLE
I would like Honda of America to offer warrenty service for the issue at hand, and back their product!
