I also have a 2014 dart gt. Having the same issue. Mine started out as the engine kept dying stopping & going around corners. Took it to the local dodge dealer & it was 4 qts low 5000 miles after oil change. They did an oil change 2000 miles ago & I'm a qt low already. Not noticing any leakage on the garage floor. Going to do a consumption test

Question 2014 Dodge Dart Limited

My Dart has 41700 miles on it and is using excessive oil. Took it into the dealership and they did a free oil change and put me on an oil monitoring program. I have to bring my Dart back after 1000 miles to have the level checked. They also said that it is considered normal for their cars to consume 1 qt of oil for every 2000 miles with less than 50k miles on the odometer. Over 50k miles and it is considered acceptable to consume 1 qt every 750 miles. My car has also stalled without any warning on three occasions shortly after first start and immediately after making a turn. Oil was low and there was no warning indicator even after the stall. This could cause an accident if someone is on my tail and not paying attention.

I am 50 years old and have owned the following vehicles:

1967 Chevy C-10 (straight 6)
1953 Chevy (straight six without the oil filter option)
1953 Ford F100 (straight 6)
1972 Ford Van (V8)
1984 Chevy C-10 (straight 6)
1982 Ford Tempo (4 cylinder)
1986 Nissan Maxima (V6)
1994 Ford Ranger (V6)
2003 Kia Sedona (V6)
2009 Dodge Avenger (4 cylinder)
2012 Ford Escape (V6)
2014 Dodge Dart (4 cylinder)

All of the above vehicles were all original mechanically and the Dart is the only one that consumed oil at an excessive level. I did not have add oil between oil changes, even with the extended oil change intervals on the newer vehicles. So how is it that it is now we are now expected to believe 1 qt every 2k miles is acceptable? The new engines are built to tighter tolerances, so shouldn't the opposite be the case?

My car is serviced by the dealership where I purchased my car only and I have been happy with the service received. So far the dealership seems to be trying to help and we will see what the outcome is.
