2.4 is junk.

I'm sad to report that the 2.4 is a pos and eats oil. I bought a brand new 2014 Dart GT that has been consuming oil since day 1. I filed a complaint and was told 2 quarts of oil consumption between oil changes was within factory guidelines. Yeah , right. It has gotten worse and complaints are all over the internet. Uses 4 quarts now between oil changes and was informed now they won't do anything because it is over the 100,000 mile factory warranty, despite my complaints for the last 2 years. So they can take their Hellcat and shove it. We have averaged a new Chrysler every 2 years for the last 20 years. Fiat sucks balls and won't get any more business from us.

My gf has a Dart and yep it's been consuming oil like crazy. After I came across the issue, I searched online and it seems to very common.

Mine literally quit running from oil level too low. Friend of mine has a Jeep with same engine and it's using oil. Dealer told him the same thing.

With 30% oil life, Car did not want to start, sounded like a low battery just clicking away. Checked the oil and it was bone dry.

Same here. We have to add oil weekly. Car is only worth $3,000 on a trade and is going to my 16 year old for he won't be driving many miles. Buying a Honda for a DD. Fiat can shove their cars sideways. They have been no help and the only reason i don't sue is because the car is worthless. If it were a Hellcat I would. I was hoping for better treatment. Nothing, so I won't be buying a Hellcat. or anything else from Fiat ever again...

The Dart 2.0 I have the programming sucks balls on it. The hood is bubbling like the rust under the paint. My be there is I didn't check to see if it was aluminum. The uconnect was cutting down and rebooting its self in the winter when the abs would engage

This is a common complaint with the 2.4L, unfortunately. I had no oil consumption issue with my 1.4L MultiAir in my Dart. I've got a 2017 Fiat 124 Spider now, same motor, also no consumption.

1.4's and 2.0's generally don't have any issues. My friend bought a Jeep with the 2.4 and is already having oil consumption issues. Mine has been eating oil since day 1. There is no fix for it and they won't give any advice or a rebate for another car. It's bullshit and there should be a massive recall.
