Anyone having any oil use or loss with their 2013 Dart 1.4L Turbo?
My son and I share the car. He is 17 so he is a little hard on it then I am
After coming home from work he borrow the car for a date. He tells me he missed a gear, he might of hit second trying to go to fourth. Again he 17 so if he remembers where he lives I'm happy. Anyway the engine went to redline and he could not get it to slow down so he shut off the key. After which the car would not start again.
The dealer reports the codes show a over speed event then a low oil pressure.
The service coordinator then told me it wonít start because there was no oil in the engine. I asked why there was no oil in my new car and the service coordinator told me it was because I didnít maintain my car and it was not going to be covered under warranty. You could tell the dealers mind was made up and nothing I sent in or said was going to change the outcome of the non-warranty decision.
I then sent in my oil change receipts (5000, 12000, 19500), current mileage is 23500. After which they told me it will not be warranty however they want me to pay off 10 hours of break down time so they can tell me what is wrong with the car.
After 25 days of talking with everyone (Dealer, Managers, Chrysler, TV, Lawyers, etc...) I had it towed home.
I have the car back home now and I will break it down this weekend. My question is has anyone else had oil loss? I know of one other Dart around me and he tells me he is burning or loosing a quart with every 1000's miles of highway driving.
