Jeep Cherokee, Renegade & Compass Subject to California Lemon Laws – Model Years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

Excessive Oil Consumption

Model years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 Jeep Cherokee, Renegade & Compass have defects that may impair your use, value, and safety.  These vehicles are equipped with a 2.4L Tigershark inline 4-cylinder engine and may experience excessive oil consumption – reported by some drivers as one quart of oil every 1000 miles.  The excessive oil consumption defect in these vehicles can cause a substantial drop in oil pressure levels, or result in the improper lubrication to the engine, or increase the oil in the engine’s cylinders and foul out the spark plugs.  None of these resulting conditions are good for the engine.  Moreover, these conditions can cause the vehicles to enter into limp mode (low power and limited speed) often without any warning.  Or, the vehicles can dangerously stall on the road, to force unwitting drivers to make emergency maneuvers to pull over to the shoulder without power, to stop on the highway, or to create danger to others while doing so.  At this point, there does not appear to be a fix for the oil consumption defect in the engine.  Jeep is simply replacing the the original defective engine with another defective Tigershark engine.
