Default KL engine replacements under warranty

I've been reading some reviews of the 2019 Cherokee.
I noticed there were a few cases of engine replacement under warranty for reasons like using too much oil.

There were other complaints about the engine shutting down for no reason.

LInks to problems I am concerned about:

I also found problems on the internet about the 2019 Cherokee stalling.

I'm not having a problem with mine. It has the 6 cyl engine.

Do you know which engines have been having problems?

It’s the 2.4 “Tigershark” engine. Well-known issues of excess oil consumption on sporadic engines, this has caused some engines to run so low on oil that they shut down unexpectedly. (Of course, those incidents are the owners’ fault for not checking the oil.) Not all 2.4s are problematic, and recent years seem better than 2014-2016.

I had one of the 2019 2.4L with an "oil consumption issues". Returned the Jeep to the dealer and left with a V6 (which has its own issues). Dealer wanted me to believe it was "normal" for an engine with less than 5k miles on it to "consume" oil. Engines don't "consume" oil, they either burn it or leak it. If during an oil change you don't get the same amount out that you need to put in, you have an oil issue. As Jeeps get older and have fun, they will either burn or leak oil but that should not happen within the first 40k or 50k of driving. Note: I talked with the mechanic at the dealership, Jeeps are designed to "shut down" if the oil drops to -2 qts or more but the check engine light does not go on until at least half the oil is gone. So, the Jeep shuts down without even telling you there is an issue. Something to keep in mind, CHECK YOUR OIL ONCE A WEEK! Read the manual on how to check the oil as well, you must run the Jeep to warm and shut it down, wait 10 -15 minutes and then check the stick. Cold checking the oil stick will give you a "false reading".

Today's Jeeps are not the "bullet proof" ones of yesterday. That being said, they still are a lot of fun to drive.
