I too had what seemed to be an oil consumption problem just before crossing the 100k mark. On a routine visit to dealership (I think for a belt change) the dealership called and said the oil was very low (more than down a quart).
We did an oil consumption test over 500 miles and level was normal. And no drastic drop in oil levels since that incindent. I'm now at 141k and consume about a quart every 3000 miles or so. Except for a few changes with regular dino years back, I always use Mobil 1 5W-30.
If you wind up with a new engine to add to your new tranny - I would keep the car.
