The head gasket started seeping oil. It will luckily be replaced under the factory warranty but I'm lucky I noticed it and made an appointment because the warranty expires in less than four months. At 26k miles this is just laughable. I feel bad for those who have this happen outside of the warranty period. I will likely be selling the car as soon as the gasket is fixed.

Renegade Limited 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles

I was so angry that this Jeep that had only 22000 miles on it would have so many problems. I was told I was lucky because my warranty was about to run out. This problem was noticed in August when they worked on the AC and then I was told they couldn't get parts. I was scheduled in September and October but they cancelled both times. They said it was fine to drive just be careful it doesn't overheat. They finally worked on this head gasket 11/2/20. When they took it out for a test drive, they noticed a clunk.
