Received this from Chrysler Canada...
Dear Mr. XXX:
We are sorry to learn of the problems experienced with the oil
consumption in your 2007 Jeep Wrangler, VIN: XXX, and of
the resulting inconvenience.
Oil consumption can vary in each vehicle due to many different
circumstances. There is no standard amount of oil consumption that is
considered acceptable for all vehicles and conditions.
Some of the following are examples under which oil consumption may
increase on a vehicle:
1. during engine break in (up to about 7500 miles)
2. with vehicle age and mileage due to normal engine wear
3. during severe service use (heavy loading, towing, multiple short
trips, taxi, off-road or law enforcement use)
4. during sustained high speed driving
5. with failure to comply with recommended oil type and viscosity
ratings as outlined in the Owner's Manual.
If you feel that the oil consumption on your vehicle is not normal,
please contact your local dealership. In order for any determination to
be made, a supervised oil consumption test must be performed by the
dealership and an evaluation made.
Please be advised that there is no evidence in Chrysler Canada?s records
indicating there is a known issue with the engines or the installation
of the engines in the 2007 Jeep Wranglers.
We note that Recall Campaign J24, Mopar Tow Bar, is outstanding on your
vehicle. Please contact your dealer to arrange completion of this
service, at no charge to you.
We apologize for the inconvenience you encountered, and we appreciate
the opportunity to review this matter with you.

2007 Wrangler oil burning issue
Hello. I purchased this Jeep in 08/12 privately and know there is no
existing warranty. However after driving 6000 miles (odometer reads
miles) and 2 oil changes I have come to notice that I am burning oil at
the rate of at least 1L/1000 miles. Doing extensive internet research I
see that this is an issue with some Wranglers where the engines were
made in Mexico (rings not installed correctly). I am concerned about
engine repair costs down the road and am wondering what Chrysler Canada
can do for me in this circumstance. Chrysler\'s policy of 1L/1000 miles
being normal makes no sense to me as this excessive burning will clog
the O2 sensors and destroy the catalytic converter in short time. I
appreciate your response to this issue and thank you.
