PT Cruiser Oil Consumption Problem
My PT Cruiser consumes oil at the rate of a quart or more every thousand miles. Read my story to see how it turns out that my PT Cruiser had the exact same problem with the prior owner. Ferman Automotive contacted him after failing to repair the problem. Ferman reacquired the vehicle, giving the prior owner his choice of a new one from the lot. See how many additional times they have failed to repair the oil consumption problem.

Internal Chrysler "DaimlerChrysler" Documents Revealed

DaimlerChrysler is currently avoiding problems such as excessive Oil consumption that should be covered under warranty, which will usually eventually lead to complete Engine failure. To avoid defective Engine warranty claims, Chrysler sends internal memo to dealers stating that acceptable Oil consumption for Chrysler Engines below 50,000 miles is one quart per 1,000 miles driven! Acceptable Oil consumption for Chrysler Engines with over 50,000 miles is one quart per 750 miles! Are we the only group that finds this also absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable? Chrysler also states that these are the industry standards? We would like to know what industry Chrysler is in? This is clearly a scam to push consumers beyond warranty period. 


Strange enough, we called 10 different non Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep Dealerships; the service departments of dealerships including Ford, GM, Honda, Toyota, Volvo, Nissan and Kia and ironically none of these dealerships found this type of Oil consumption acceptable with their own vehicles they service. Once again we question how this type of excessive Oil Consumption is in anyway acceptable where there are non Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep vehicles with over 200,000 miles on them that consume far less Oil.


Consumers should know that we are completely limited from posting the actual document in a readable form due to potential legal liability. After all, Chrysler's internal documents state the following: No part of any technical information may be reproduced, stored, in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise without the prior written permission of DaimlerChrysler Corporation. What could they be hiding in these internal documents?

Are you 100% SURE your PT Cruiser does not consume oil?
Personal Tip: Check your oil level yourself regularly. At the very least check it before and after every oil change for own knowledge.
