Oil Consumption

Has anyone noted any engine oil consumption in their Renegade 2.4 engine?

When my car was delivered it had 190 miles, part of that was because my local dealer didn't have the color we wanted so they picked it up from another dealer. Anyway the oil level was about 1/2 between full and add marks. Maybe the engine wasn't filled at the factory? I added enough oil to bring it to the full mark.

The car now has 2800 miles, I have checked the oil several times since it was filled, yesterday I noticed it was about 1/3 down from the fill mark.

I realize that isn't a big problem but I haven't experienced that much oil use on my last several new vehicles. I also realize the oil consumption may decrease after break-in.

That said, I know most new cars now require very little or no break-in miles.

"No oil light came on at all and i was about 2000 miles shy of having the oil changed."

I cannot find a oil warning light in my 2015 Latitude, build date Dec 2014. The owners manual
shows a oil warning light in the symbols description but no light is in my Renegade. I know
it should be in the dash somewhere. I have turned on the start lights many times looking for
the light, everything else appears to be there. Anyone else missing that light?

Hi Clifton,

The oil change indicator should be in the center of the instrument cluster when it comes on, and chimes. There's also warning light is for low oil--if you truly think it is missing, a trip to your dealer may be in order.

Forgot to mention, our car is now parked in the garage and will not be driven until this is settled.

The most unsettling part of it is that I have no way to prove this is happening and this is NOT a fault of mine.

I offered to take pictures and do a video showing it, I even offered to make an uninterrupted video with the VIN number and license plate of the car and the dealer said they cannot accept that as proof.
Hello, Maynard. Our team recommends a dealership visit for your concerns. If you decide to go that route and need support, let us know.

I tried that as you may have read. The dealer was good to me but they cannot prove it's happening and I believe it should be in the software.

Can you give me a way to prove this? I spoke with a rep at Jeep and they said pics and video should suffice, dealer says it will not, which is it? Happy to resolve this.

Jeep is very aware of this situation. We just bought a used Jeep for our son, with 116,000 miles, it has a very clean burn coming out of the exhaust, the difference is night and day.
I apologize for my misunderstanding then, Maynard.

Regarding a way to prove a concern, we do not have much insight there. If the dealership you're working with states that pictures and video will not work, we suggest working with them to see what will. If repairs end up being made or additional diagnosis performed, feel free to reach out to us in private message.
