I haven't got the best millage out of mine either and mentioned it a few times. They replaced a lazy o2 sensor once I noticed but I did not see the improvement. I was getting 4-5 MPG more that my 2002 Grand Cherokee with its 4.0L I6 engine. A true SUV 4x4 and for the different I laughed at it being in a much smaller vehicle barely able to do better than it does.
Its now gone as I sold it and moved onto NON Chrysler now with a Hyundai Sante Fe. I am quite happy with it and yet to see how it fares in the snow with its AWD and 3.3L engine.
OH I am not laughing but at the end of the day a dealer needs to assess the issue and effect some sort of repair or parts swap to see if it fixes it. You do need to bring it to their attention and get it documented. It maybe a known problem for some of them. Much like when I told a rep at the dealer I had a hard time filling the tank since the gas station nozzles were kicking out unless I barely squeezed the lever. He told me I did not know how to fill a tank and would take me out to show me. Now I'd been filling tanks for 40 years by then and now I need to be learned by someone who thinks I am missing something. Well the tech saw the work order and knew there was a bullet on that issue !!!
The technician promptly ordered a new gas tank since there was a problem (TSB) in some with an internal part causing this. LOL
I have not had a problem with filling since. I started dealing with a different rep after that as well. TURKEY !!!!
