I purchased a 2007 Wrangler in July 2013, right away I noticed it was burning oil. I notified the dealer, and was told to keep track of it. This was obviously to delay the warranty. Here it is nine months later, and I am responsible for replacing the engine. Kevin treated me very rude, told me to "file a formal complaint with Chrysler" which I did. He obviously lied to Chrysler, because when Stephani came back on the line she said it was a "misunderstanding"
This vehicle has been serviced at Don Whites, and they MIGHT honor the lifetime guarantee on the engine, but have to do "a lot" of diagnostics for which I have to pay.The FIRST step is to pay them $110 to check spark plugs. I will NOT dump money into this dealer. Searches have revealed there is a problem with the manufacturing of the 3.8l in which the oil control rings were incorrectly installed, it is estimated that 40% of the 3.8l are affected. My 2005 Grand caravan with a 3.8l does not burn ANY oil, my Jeep burns a quart every 700 - 800 miles.
Back round on me, I was a professional mechanic for 17years, I have been a mechanic my entire life. I used to possess an ASE MASTER certification in automobiles and light trucks, ASE MASTER certification in medium and heavy duty trucks. I carried the same certifications from Michigan state. I changed professions 15 years ago, so I let my certs expire, I state this just to demonstrate I am knowledgeable in service of vehicles.
I Recommend This Dealer:
