I had the upgrade completed on the Recall 84. Now my 2016 Chysler 200 gets 22-24 mpg instead of average 35-38 before the recall 84 was done. I'm not happy & will NOT ever purchase a Chrysler vehicle again. I would like a refund to purchase a difference car, because this car is a gas hog now. Not happy!

I'll respond once again with my observations.
I now have put over 5 thousand miles on since the recall was performed.
My mileage is down, only slightly. Maybe 2 mpg total.
I just returned from a long trip and highway mileage was down also, but that depends on road and weather conditions.
Only other thing I notice is the engine oil has remained cleaner.
Not as dark and dirty as previously by this mileage on the last oil change.
I have so far used 1/2 quart since the last change. That is an improvement.
Mileage over 128,300 and rolling along.
Great car.

Welcome to the forums.
Have you gotten a P0420 (catalyst efficiency) fault code?
How severe was the oil consumption before? Do you have repair order documents proving the high oil consumption or an investigation of it?
If motor oil has damaged cats, it hasn't been a widespread problem.
What year and model?

So I had recall done and asked if the oil consumption would have taken out my catalytic converter and was told no it wouldn't not buying that if it consums oil it has to put it through converter

My concern is that about the time we got the recall the Chrysler 200s got a po420 code that says converter is bad. When they got done on recall they gave me a estimate to replace it for 3,000 and something the converter costing over 2,300 I just thank if car was getting oil on top of pistons it would go through converter making it go bad.

The PCM and converter have an 8yr/80K mile extended federal emissions warranty. Have you exceeded that mileage?
The potential for possible cat overheating was addressed in previous TSB #18-083-18. The software to address the oil consumption issue under the recall should also contain these improvements:

There was never a recall for catalytic converters.
The TSB mentioned is information released by the company for the mechanics use in shop.
The W-84 recall has nothing to do with your issue. Seems that symptoms of a poorly running engine was evident if you changed O2 sensors.
At the mileage you have, more then 48 thousand miles over the Federal emissions warranty, I am sorry to say getting any assistance for a failed catalytic converter might be hopeless.

At one time it looked like a cat recall was going to happen in Canada and possibly in the U.S., but I don't think that anything became of it.
Use of OEM O2 sensors may be an important consideration. I have had issues with Bosch and 'Universal' sensors:

Just finding out about this recall that affects certain Chrysler / FCA models with the 2.4 engine.
I found on-line the recall was issued in January 2012 for this issue on several vehicles.
It appears mine, 2015 200 with the 2.4 is now included.
The claim made by Chrysler is about excessive oil consumption on certain 2.4 engines.
I believe there were some complaints here with folks talking about adding oil between changes.

Link to the Jeep recall by the same campaign number. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2021/MC-10187102-9999.pdf
When I had this recall updated on my car, it damaged the Fuel usage from 36 mpg to 22 mpg. Now the best mile per gallon that my car will get is around 22 miles per gallon even on highway driving. This recall damaged my car & the service department at mod edit says there is nothing they can do about it. I will NEVER purchase a Chysler again. Honda's will be the next cars I purchase!!

Six months after I had the W84 recall performed I can say definitely that fuel mileage is down, buy about 2 or 3 mpg.
Oil consumption is also down.
I was never concerned over the oil loss. Fuel mileage is more important, but I can lose 2 or 3 mpg ( or more ) just by aggressively driving.
Bottom line for me. No real change that I am worried about.
Mileage today 129,560 and my service for the winter is done.
