LOw OIL reading IS 350

I have been concerned of late that I seem to be experiencing low oil levels even between regular oil changes which are usally at the 6000 KM interval.Although I hesitate to blame the repair /recall that they did on the engine valve? I did to start to notice this problem after this recall. I now have to add oil in between oil changes.( I am at 230,000 KM presently) -yes I do a lot of highway driving - I never had these problems with my old es 300 which has 520,000 KM and goes like a dream. I have changed over to semi-synthetic from Mr lube and when I top up I do that with full synthetic. I am worried that I may have serious engine problems coming up even though the car still performs well and I see no smoke coming from the exhaust pipe. Anyone with similar issues? or comments

What oil are you using? Most Likely it's time for you to switch to a thicker oil.
