  • Jeffery M. Brown I own a 2007 JKU Wrangler and it burns 1.5 to 2 quarts of oil every 1K. This in not acceptable nor do I (every time I'm told) think this is normal.

    I demand to have the motor fixed of the problem and not just switch the oil weights and hope it masks the problem.

  • Daniel Poulin Yes you're right!

  • Solin Goldberg Ok...Whew. Here goes. So I have a JK 2011 2 door Wrangler (this is my 4th Jeep). I use Mobil one and go about 6000-7000k miles in between oil changes. I've never had a problem, up until about 43k miles. (of course, over the 36k warranty) I've had oil changes and no one ever said I was low on oil. EVER! Well, at that changed. I would check my oil, periodically. At 43k all hell broke loose! I got a knocking sound from the bottom of my engine. After $500 to "look" at my engine at a Jeep dealership, it turns out that I need a new engine! I own a Jeep, not a Bentley. $500 doesn't grow on trees, and get this....They want $9,000 to fix it!!! WTF??? That's half of what the car is worth, and it's a lease, and has to go back in a month! So I called Chrysler, because that is ridiculous! Jeep dealerships rip you off. Just sayin. Well, to make a long story short, back and forth calls, oil change records, 6 1/2 weeks later, I get the same answer, that it's not covered under the 5 year, 100,000 power train warranty. No warning lights, no sounds, nothing to warn me. Am i responsible for this? I think not. Chrysler tells me that it's up to the Jeep dealership. Are you kidding me? I wasted 6 1/2 weeks during the summer, without my Jeep. I missed 4 wheeler vacations, advertising for my business, and they want $9k? What a joke. And It's up to the dealership? Well, Chrysler is going to have a big lawsuit on their hands. This is not over.

    5 days ago Comments: My jeep was bought new in March 2007. From the first day it used oil. It was still under warranty. I took it to the dealership for the oil consumption issue . No problems were found. It used over a quart every 3000 miles per their test. Jeep informed me that the engine could use up to a quart per 1000 miles and still be acceptable. I called BS on all of it and walked out.
