From the owners manual
Checking the oil while the vehicle is on level
ground, and approximately five minutes after
a fully warmed engine is shut off, will improve
the accuracy of the oil level readings.
Maintain the oil level between the range
markings on the dipstick. The safe range is
indicated by a crosshatch zone.
Overfilling or underfilling will cause oil
aeration, or loss of oil pressure. This could
damage your engine.
I do my own oil changes and after I drain the oil and change out the filter and refill with 5.5 quarts of oil and run it as stated in the manual. My oil level is right in the middle of the crosshatch zone. And that were it has always stayed until the next 5000 mile oil change.
I don't disagree with the other poster if you really are having consumption issues, I would continue service with the dealer or try a different dealer and see what they can do for you.
FYI most dealers use a bulk oil and I would be willing to bet most don't use a 0W-20 oil. I checked with 4 area dealers and in order to get 0w-20 synthetic or synthetic blend, I would have to pay extra. So much for 4 free Jeep Wave program oil changes. LOL And BTY you can't get a 0w-20 oil in conventional non synthetic oil.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery
