Reasons for Excess Oil Consumption

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

Oil May Leak From Oil Filter Adapter

An oil leak from the oil filter adapter may be evident. Chrysler has made a revised oil filter adapter is available.

Airbag light may be on due to blown fuse

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The vehicle's air bags may not deploy as needed in an accident, resulting in increased risk of occupant injury. Additionally, the air bags could deploy inadvertently without an accident, causing loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the air bag control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.

Windshield Separates From Vehicle During Crash

The windshield may have been installed using expired primer for the urethane adhesive, and may not be sufficiently secure to the vehicle body. In an accident, it could dislodge and increase risk of occupant injury. Dealers will replace the windshield free of charge to resolve the concern.

Hood Opens While Driving

The hood latch striker bolts may loosen and allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will install new hood striker bolts with the proper torque free of charge to resolve the concern.

As of August 17, 2015, I have $145,000 miles on it. Great on long or short trips. No engine or transmission issues. I have had normal issues with replacing brakes, tires, tie rods, water pump, AC clutch (replaced after $140k miles it ceased up), EGR valves and rear wiper motor. Rides true. Interior is still great. Very happy.
