Hello,
I have a question, I have a fiat 500x 2.4 from America but you read that those 2.4 tigershark engines do not see well. what about true?

The 500X doesn't sell well with any engine in the US... I don't have sales by engine. If you take all Fiat sales of all Fiat cars in the USA, multiple by five... you still don't have a good sales number for a single car! They aren't popular here. It's a shame, I really did like the 500 and thought the 500L and 500X had potential, and really really like the 124. Maybe enough to buy one.

Most are. But some can use a lot of oil.

okay, so not all 2.4 tigershark use oil?
which ones are good?
I’ve had three. None used oil.

You just drive and see it f yours used oil or not. There is no way to know if yours will use oil or not.

super did you also have a 2.4L?
I have one of the oil burner 2.4s but in a Compass. Because the vehicle can suddenly shut down without warning when the oil is low, it requires very frequent checking. It can be a considerable safety hazard in traffic.

ok I don't have that at all, how many miles should the oil be changed?
Your owners manual will tell. The car may have an oil life monitor.

okay, maybe there is an american website where you can order car parts for a fiat 500x from 2016 with a 2.4L because here in europe you will find nothing of it?

I wouldn't go off the manual. If I did that with my Abarth it would have run dry multiple times!
The interval for oil change and he interval for checking the oil level are two different things.

If you went by the owner's manual you would check your oil level and add oil when needed.

I know guys, do you think the average person is checking their oil between changes? Or even how to check the oil? My oil would be half way down the dip stick after just 1000km, always had to have a liter of synthetic in the back for routine top-ups (which is ridiculous in a new car). I know for a fact the avg buyer is not doing that.
