Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

My issue is the large amount of oil used, 1 qt used per 2500 miles. This is what the dealership and Jeep told me. Normal oil consumption: Below are industry standards for normal engine oil consumption: Mileage below 50,000: Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 1,000 miles driven. Mileage above 50,000: Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 750 miles driven. So, as long as a Jeep with 50000 or more miles on it does not use more than a quart of oil every 750 miles they do not care, and they will not fix it. I was also told that why new Jeep take 6 qt's since they use so much oil. I even have a warranty and they still will not fix it. There are no oil leaks and I have had 2 oil consumption test ran on the vehicle by the dealership. The dealership and Chrysler will not help fix the problem. I was told by the dealership that I am lucky it does not use a quart of oil every 1000 miles, since it may get low enough to burn the engine up in under 2500 miles.

2007 Jeep Wrangler. Consumer states that vehicle made a rattling noise while accelerating. She thought that her vehicle should have been included in the transmission recall. The dealer recommended an engine breakdown and inspection. After the inspection of the vehicle, the consumer was informed that based on the inspection report, the repair of the engine was denied. The consumer stated he was accused of negligence by means of improper/insufficient lubrication which resulted in engine failure due to lack of oil, despite providing sufficient evidence of proper vehicle maintenance.
