problem #3

Renegade Trailhawk

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,180 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The vehicle stalled out making a left onto a busy 4-lane highway with oncoming traffic. Restarted, went on the way, happened again 2 days later in the exact same situation. No dashboard indicators about the cause of the stall. Took it to the dealership. Dealership diagnosed low oil and changed the oil. Vehicle had < 3200 miles at the time of the stall issue. Pickup feels worse and gear shift is odd since the oil change.

Renegade 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,900 miles

Since owning the vehicle brand new, I have been mentioning to the dealership that I feel I’m using excessive amounts of oil. I had to place a quart in at 1500 miles, and I have had to continue placing oil in at intervals of every 1000-2000 miles even with getting routine oil changes at the dealership. They have now asked me to keep record of it....they may have to scope the engine. I just had an oil change at 9800 miles and had to put a quart in at 11800.

Renegade 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles

2018 Jeep Renegades with 2.4L engines are not recommended. They burn oil and there has been no recall. Is it a defect that should require engine replacement or lemon law return to manufacturer.

The dealer did not mention it before, during the sale or after. I suggest everyone with this issue ask about the lemon law????
