I’ve had this issue as well.
My ‘17 renegade th was consuming 1qt/1000 miles, basically leaving me with little or no oil at oil change intervals.The dealer had performed 4 oil consumption tests, each indicating the above mentioned consumption. After the 4th test, they sent paperwork to Fiat and my car was approved for a engine block replacement. I have had no issues since then.

This is good to know as I just finished my last oil consumption test and I was going through 2 to 3 quarts per 1000 mile. Waiting for the dealership to submit the paperwork. Do you know if they replace any other parts besides the block?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I believe they replace the Short-Block Assembly. A Short-Block is just a block with crankshaft, rods and pistons.

Just spoke to the dealership and it is just the short-block assembly. Mine goes in on Monday.

my first Renegade 2015 consumed oil, Not that bad,, My new one 2017 is not. Had not had to add. I check like the manual says 5 mins after shutting it off on a level surface. Been good so far. My big problem is where do I refill my blinker fluid?

I think the Blinkah fluid is next to the accelerator fluid.

Just an FYI, It's not just the Renegade, it's everything they put the 2.4 engine in.

all short block replacements do not replace the valve guides and seals. MY dealer told me the valves guides take a while to "break in" and that may have been my problem. you guys getting new short blocks better question the valves/valve guides. all they do is pull the heads, hopefully clean and put on the new block. bad guides will burn oil
