                        not always, depends where the head gasket has failed, there are various symptoms.

                        if its not leaking then it must be burning it, there is nowhere else for it to go.

                            Exactly but if it was burning it would be obvious out of the exhaust. 5-6l is alot in a few hundred miles.

                              i would check the sump nut, oil filter and check the oil filler cap is tight.

                              best bet is let the dealer look at it.
