Pretty much once you get used to the CVT this thing is a cruising beast. I love it! Looks good, rides good, MGP is slightly less then advertised but a solid vehicle. I hope this things lasts forever cause it is a sweet little tank. Trailhawk version is sweet!

6600mi.....Looking good!

I shouldn't read other peoples reviews....they frighten and confuse me! Ok...Driving it 150miles a day has been great. Smooth ride, Great Mileage...32.5 average daily. The worst part is the drivers seat. I'm 5'6" and the bottom of the drivers seat rubs under my knees. Never had that problem before. Had to buy a back cushion to nudge me forward a bit. Other than that, the power is good if you rev it up and don't shift too fast. If you're driving fairly calmly, then it's fine as well, just not a quick starter off the line. The turbo takes a bit to kick in, but lets be honest, I bought this for the extra room in the back over a sedan, and the decent mpg. The Bluetooth for the phone audio is HORRID! No one can hear me when I speak through the car's system, so I have to still use the speaker phone or a headset. When listening to music and Audiobooks, the bluetooth works well, and I like that it reads me a text message through the system as well. I think the 6 speed manual is the smoothest shifting transmission I've ever had. It's like butter in every gear. I read some ladies review and she ripped the shifting on the 6 speed. I can't imagine what the heck she is doing to have those problems. I drove 3 different Renegade's and they all shifted great! I like the Auto Parking Break feature. I think it should be on by default. I found it by accident a few weeks after buying the car. Much safer than finding myself squished by the car while getting my mail! Visibility is good. You can't see out of the rear little windows, but the car still has excellent visibility. The price was $17020 + Tax $20,000 with everything and a full reimbursment accident policy. I normally don't get anything like that, but it wasn't expensive and will get me new car someday if the worst happens. Great experience with the car a few months in and 6500mi.

I have a 2015 Jeep Renegade SUV, 4WD, 4 door. I have had it since August, 2015, and have broken down twice in remote areas (mountains and beach). Although I was told by the dealer (from whom I have bought 4 Jeeps) that to buy the Roadside Service would be a good thing. It wasn't. Neither was the service from the Company (Jeep/Chrysler) nor the dealer (Atlantic Auto, Egg Harbor Township, NJ). Yesterday I spent 4 1/2 hours on the beach as I watched the tide get closer and closer to my Jeep. I was finally pulled out of the sand. I have had other instances where the service has been terrible. My last 5 vehicles were Jeeps (Liberty and Wrangler) but I will never buy another one and will never buy another vehicle from Atlantic Auto Group.

Why all of the hate???

I've been reading these reviews and honestly I had to chime in. I have a 2015 Latitude 4x4 with the 1.4 turbo 6-speed manual. I have about 10,500 miles on it so far, have had it since February 2016. I've had it to the dealer two times so far, but only for oil changes ( I choose to change the oil every 5k miles by choice...but that's me). These reviews that people are putting out here are terrible, it's like they didn't test drive the vehicle. How could you not notice that the vehicle doesn't fit you well, or "blind spots"? To me this Jeep is a fishbowl, with big windows all around, so I don't know what blind spot they are referring to. I love this little Jeep, I'm getting 31+ MPG combined and have had 0 problems so far. Also as far as fitting in the vehicle, I'm 6'4" and I don't have a problem. That's about it, don't let the reviews here scare you off somehow...it really is a great little vehicle.

First car in my life that I've hated!

I've bought plenty of cars in my life, never terribly expensive ones but ones that I thought were a good value while providing all the features I need. I thought the Jeep Renegade fell into that category. I bought my car in October 2015. I'm usually one to give things some time before making up my mind, so although I noticed some issues with the car right away I decided to give myself time to adjust to driving a different car than I'd been used to. I've had 4-cylinder cars in the past and liked them just fine, but this one is downright dangerous! The engine has such trouble shifting between gears that it hesitates between them, causing the car to almost come to a step when doing so. It also has very lethargic acceleration. On top of that, I've noticed that the steering wheel pulls to one side when trying to accelerate quickly to get into traffic, making it feel like I'm losing control of the car. This car has scared the daylights out of me many times for these reasons. I feel like I'm going to get into an accident every time I drive it. To make matters worse, the remote lock and security system is apparently very easy to exploit. Twice now the car has been broken into in front of my house, only yards from where I sleep, without the alarm going off. The car window isn't broken, so clearly someone has figured out how to override the security system and get in easily. I don't feel safe parking it in front of my house and I certainly can't leave anything in it. What a huge disappointment this car has turned out to be!

What should other consumers know? They should know to turn the other direction and don't walk, but RUN AWAY from any 9 Speed Transmission vehicle that FCA has produced, especially the 2015 Jeep Renegade and forget getting any customer support from FCA. Mine has 12 miles on it when I purchased it, brand new, from the dealership in July 2015. Only 8,000 some miles later did I start having issues. The vehicle shut down on me while in motion, on the road. This is a serious safety issue not only for a driver, but for other drivers on the road. There was no warning. The vehicle still had electrical power, but the engine would not turn over after it completely shut down. I called Chrysler 24 hour towing and they towed it to the nearest dealership; I had no choice in the matter, otherwise it would have gone to the dealership I purchased it from. This particular dealership had it for 3 days, only to tell me that there was nothing wrong with it, except that "Engines need oil and there was no oil in it. You need to put oil in it." DUH. I was treated as if I were an idiot. So I paid out of pocket for the oil change they did on it...and the rental car they were supposed to provide. I had the oil changed about 1000 miles previously, so it did not need an oil "change". The vehicle at this point started running rough and when starting would rev itself, with the RPMs shooting up, until I put it in reverse - neutral did nothing. I was checking the oil each time I drove it at this point and noticed that the oil was "disappearing". There was no leak or oil in the driveway, nor was it burning oil, but the pan would be bone dry. I called FCA and reported it immediately, and was told that I needed to put oil in it. I informed them that if this problem persisted that the engine would seize. I was told there were no problems like this with the Renegade, no recalls, and to keep putting oil in it. I called the dealership I purchased it from and my sales guy spoke to the Master Tech who had not heard of this issue. I was instructed to try and replicate the problem and have it towed to them when that happened. On August 29 2016, it started shuddering, shaking, rumbling and running hard while I was on the road. Luckily I was able to get home. I checked the oil and there was oil in it, but forget driving it! The engine light was on and that was it - seized engine. I called Chrysler 24h towing and had them come get it to take it to my original dealer...and they charged me $101.00 for the towing. I got a call later in the week telling me that it was the cylinder head and that my spark plug sockets were full of oil. This could have caused a fire. After a week of waiting for the part to come in, I got another call from them. The engine would have to be completely replaced because it was seized. That is what ruined the cylinder head. A new engine to be put in a new vehicle, at only 9288 miles and just over a year of owning it. I immediately called FCA and requested to start the Buy Back process. I was told I would have a rental the following day...A month later and I still do not have a rental. I have paid out $400 out of pocket to rent a vehicle myself twice now, plus the first time it was in the shop! FCA has been giving me the runaround. THIS IS A DANGEROUS VEHICLE. I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS HAD A SIMILAR ISSUE. Supposedly my Renegade will be ready for pick up tomorrow; how I am getting over there I have no clue. I have not heard from the FCA Buy Back case manager in two weeks now and she will not return my phone calls. I don't hear back from them soon, I will be filing under the Lemon Law in my state, which thankfully I qualify for. Don't put yourself or others at risk by buying one of these potential death traps that FCA now knows about. (I do not blame the original dealership that sold me the vehicle or the sales person. They've been fantastic at trying to help me out as much as they possibly can.)

The Jeep Renegade is the worst vehicle I've ever owned. I purchased it new in November 2015 and within 10 months, had to get it serviced for four different major issues. I am extremely disappointed in Jeep for producing such a poor quality vehicle. • March 2016 – A “rock” punctured a hole in the air conditioning unit causing the A/C fluid to leak out. This resulted in an $800 repair that was not covered under warranty. I still find it hard to believe that a rock was able to get into this location, especially with enough force to puncture a hole in the A/C unit. I had never even taken this vehicle off road. I believe the part was either defective or damaged when I purchased it. • April 2016 – The Jeep began making a terrible squealing noise and brought it in for service. I captured an audio file and provided it to the service department. They believed they corrected the issue but the squealing noise continued. I returned the Jeep to the service department yet again. This time, they ended up finding a rock in the rotor area that was causing the issue. • August 2016 – The Jeep’s power locks failed so it was returned to the service department. The power locks were not working from the key fob or from the door panel and had to be manually locked and unlocked. This is a safety hazard! I made yet another appointment with the service department. They downloaded software upgrades and found that a part for the power locks was bad and needed replacement. I was informed a new part would arrive within 3-5 days. (Note: As of 9/21/16, 36 days later, the part still has not arrived!) • August 2016 – While I was calling the service department for a status on the ordered part to fix the Jeep’s power locks, I also reported additional issues, as noted below: (1) The parking brake now automatically sets every time the Jeep is placed into Park. This was not happening prior to the 8/16/16 service and I was not informed about it. (2) The hood will no longer open. Again, this was not happening prior to the 8/16/16 service. (Note: During the 8/16/16 service, an oil change was also performed.) (3) The key gets stuck in the ignition after the car is placed into Park and will not release. In order to get the key removed, the vehicle has to be removed from Park and then forcefully placed back into Park.

Great Jeep

I have only had my Renegade for a few days. I have noticed no major issues. Cabin is extremely quiet. The dash display is quite helpful in terms of fuel economy, tire pressure, etc. Fuel economy for me has been good so far. The sound system is a little lackluster as I have the base Lattitude model, would have liked something with a little more thump. Seats are comfy. The ride is surprisingly smooth (it is a Jeep!). I have noticed a lot of complaints about transmission, which I am hoping to avoid with the manual trans. Speaking of, the shifting is very smooth, but the acceleration to me is a little sluggish. But it's not a sports car, it is a Jeep. I have owned several Wranglers in the past and have had no major issues with any of them. I would've purchased another Wrangler, but the prices are a little too steep for me at this time. But, I am a Jeep fan and I have been looking forward to the Renegade since it was announced. I got a great deal on my little Jinx (nickname) so I really can't complain too much.

It is a Jeep, not a Corvette, not a truck , and not a mini van. I am 6'5" tall and I am very comfortable in the front seat and the back seat. It holds all the cargo my wife and I need to haul and is very reliable. The only complaint I have is I miss my cd player, but I solved that by getting a portable cd player and hooking it up to my radio and 12 volt power supply. This Jeep puts a smile on my face!

This is my first time ever writing a review on a car... and this proves how strongly I feel about this car. I was one of the first people on the streets with the vehicle so people would stop me all the time to ask questions on the specs of the car. From the moment I left, I realized how poor the acceleration is... it helps a bit when you put it in manual... but why should we have to? The satellite doesn't work so when I went to Jeep to fix it... they claimed it was an XM radio issue, then XM said nope... so yeah it's jeep. Even the regular radio is fuzzy. The doors were unlocking and locking by themselves, the brakes don't brake firmly and do skid quite a bit, and my brakes already started squeaking only a couple of months after the car was purchased. When I brought my list of concerns to Jeep, they gave me back the car with only the locks being fixed and literally told me, "we are so sorry there is nothing else we can do to help." Long story short... turning in the car today after one year. I have never in my life disliked a car as much as I dislike this one. STAY FAR FAR AWAY.

Just Expect Every Problem... thats JEEP

Bought the car in June 2015 because I liked the style and the salesman raved about all the great features. Problems started after a short time with the locks. Have a difficult time unlocking the car. Sometimes only the driver door unlocks. Sometimes the doors unlock but not the hatch sometimes the hatch unlocks but not all the doors. Had it back to the dealer and the problem is resolved only to occur again. Also when pulling out from a stop sign/light the anti-skid light comes on and the power drops to nothing...very dangerous. As other people have experienced acceleration is terrible. Very dangerous on merging into high speed roads. Also terrible on hills. Hate the car got lousy deal so I am stuck with it.

The Renegade's size and exterior styling caught my eye when visiting the dealer to have a Ram truck serviced over a year ago. I walked over to look, and--it was quite upscale and European looking inside! I then walked around to look at the window sticker--it was MADE IN EUROPE--Italy to be precise. Was it possible that this confirmed European car driver could actually purchase an American car as a daily driver? (The Ram truck only pulls a horse trailer and goes to the hardware store). I was not in need of a new vehicle, but I kept thinking about the Renegade. Fast forward about 18 months, I looked the Renegade up online just out of curiosity to check reviews, and found huge manufacturer and dealer incentives on the remaining 2015s in stock--I thought, oh my, I can get a brand new Jeep (actually a Fiat) for about the same price paid for a new 2001 VW Beetle years ago! Another big plus for me was the availability of a manual transmission. I was sorely tempted at his point despite the VW's reliability, and headed for the Jeep dealer. Let m assure you that going to an American car dealer was quite a step for me! The first dealer did not have what I was looking for, but the second dealer did--I'd been doing all the shopping and research, and was quite sure we were going home with the Renegade, so I asked my husband to come along to look at the Renegade and drive the VW home. He was amazed at the good value and quality of the Renegade! The Renegade continues to please--30+mpg in combined driving, and the car is very willing to move--engine and manual trans are smooth! It is very quiet and roomy inside--good sized adults will fit in the back seat, and simply easy to deal with--it actually is a utility vehicle. It does not rattle or have wind noise. It has some nice touches inside like soft lighting, the seats are comfortable, and I'm really enjoying the SiriusXM radio trial. I am thrilled to not have to drive a 50 mile round trip for service since I have two Jeep dealers close by. I have not owned the vehicle long enough to comment on durability, but I believe the build quality is good. A family member who worked at a high level job for another car manufacturer looked at it and was impressed by the quality. At this point I am very satisfied with the Renegade. I keep my vehicles for a long time, drive them carefully, and have them maintained on schedule. I expect that this vehicle will last.

Not a great commuter car

Great car for parking in a crowded lot with good visibility and limited blind spot. Poor acceleration and automatic transmission horrible in traffic, wish they had a stick in the Trailhawk. Range is not good either about 300 miles per tank max.

Engine died on busy freeway with 4k miles. Car has been at dealership for repair for over 40 days, and still no diagnosis of the problem. One big headache! Price and features seemed great, but now I know it was too good to be true. I liked certain design aspects of the car, but reliability is horrendous, and I see now that I'm not alone in my frustration and disappointment.

Good little jeep with lots of little extras. So far it has been impressive, lots of people down the car because of the transmission. Truth be told it's just different than most others out there. I have owned around 100 cars all make and this one shifts totally different. If you don't have an open mind to a different vehicle how it shifts and operates then don't buy this one. If you do you will be one of the people whom don't like this jeep. I have been happy with my jeep and it runs like a champ. I like the crawl control and the optional terrain modes. For the price it is hard to beat!

The ignition system will not release vehicle ignition key. Jeep renegade was bought in Nov. 2015. Between Nov. 2015 and May 2016 removing the ignition key was a slow progression until May 28 2016 the ignition key stayed stuck in the ignition system. Another problem is the acceleration. Once the transmission shifts through all the forward gears and you step on the gas pedal to accelerate the motor will hesitate (choke). I suggest; drive the vehicle and if it hesitate when you accelerate drive the jeep back to the dealership lot. I was informed by Chrysler dealership there is no fix for that problem.

Worst Decision of my life!!

I bought a 2015 Jeep Renegade Latitude 01/01/2016 and it has already been in the shop for issues. The first issue I have had is using a DriveSense device to save money on car insurance allegedly cause the computer to malfunction. I had 304 miles and in the first month of ownership it was in the shop more than it was able to be driven. Multiple cars to Chrylser complaint line and threats of wanting the car replaced caused Chrylser/Fiat to reimburse for the first month payment as it was only drivable for about 1 week out of the entire month. Removed the computer reading device no issues. It would be thought that this information would be shared from Jeep(Chrylser/Fiat) with Esurance to advise that the DriveSense is not compatible with the computer within this vehicle. Fast forward a month or 2, I had an issue with the shifting from Park to Reverse/Drive--it felt like I was driving an old manual car doing the "bunny hop" when driving--I thought it was due to not being "broken in." After going down the interstate attempting to merge with traffic, the RPMs increased and the MPH decreased--felt like it was going to stall out. Also this happened when making corners, the car felt like it was going to stall out completely. Trip into the dealer revealed that there was a pump that needed to be replaced. Come to find out the Transmission pump and valves needed to be replaced. Thankfully this was a warranty repair. Fear of this happening when there is no longer a warranty and the repairs are going to be extremely costly. Wishing I would have done more research on this vehicle and read more reviews. First Jeep purchase and more than likely the last one.

It's like a Jeep...car....hybrid.

We already have a '11 Jeep Liberty so I am evaluating this Jeep with that in mind. The first thing we noticed is that we FIT in the car! The outside definitely makes you think that a 6'0" person would have their head at the ceiling - not so! Jeep really made this vehicle appeal to all demographics including those blessed with height. The power on button takes some getting used to (remember that you have to press it again with the brake in to start the car if you use the remote start! great security feature but I definitely was lost for a minute when I first used it). The turn radius is FANTASTIC for a Jeep. Or a car really! The feel is that of a car - you don't realize you are going as fast as you are until you look at the dash. That could be the reason my husband set up a warning when I hit 80mph...oops. I love being able to customize the dash with what I want to see. The gauges are switched from the usual (MPH on the right and RPM on the left rather than the reverse) so that does take some getting used to. Also, being taller, the dash is not the most visible line of sight when your hands are on the steering wheel. Therefore, we have the MPH showing as the main portion of the customized dash. Love love love the Bluetooth feature. We did not get the navigation option in the car so we just sync our phones and the speakers (loud and full sound!) let you know what is coming up. I also use the crap out of the backup camera because I am the worst person with backing up. My husband is fantastic at driving and backs into our driveway every time he comes home so he only uses it to see how close he can get to our other Jeep...ugh. The only downfall of this would be the rear seating - it's cramped for an adult person especially with the cup holder seat down. Think airplane seats. But, when we have kids, it will be perfect for them. I'm a happy camper with this one!

kept us safe and was very fun to drive

I had own my first Renegade trailhawk for almost 7 months and loved her! The renegade was amazing in snowdrifts and bad snowy roads I always felt like I had control. She was totaled one morning a few weeks ago when a young lady turn left crossing two lanes into mine. I was not able to stop in time Tboning the other car around 40/45 miles a hour. My insurance agency said he has not seen one in a accident yet however this jeep got 5 stars in his eyes. My 9 year old nephew who was in the back seat and myself walked away. I did have a bruised knee from the lower leg airbag but we walked away the jeep did its job and kept us safe. I did have a few problems with her the locks would not lock or unlock however this was a quick fix and the dealership. I now am having issues with my new jeep same as the first one. This may be a once in a lifetime problem however the cap to the battery cables came off getting caught in the fan burning the fan motor. this is being replaced as we speak. Also I have notice when I back up the brakes squeak they are also looking into this on my new jeep I have had less than two weeks. My dealership has been amazing and have quickly fixed any problems I have come across which is not many. Needless to say I loved my Renegade trailhawk so much that when I had a clean start to get any other car I choose to have another renegade. She kept me safe and was fun to play with in the snow.

Should've kept looking!

I purchased a 2015 Latitude 2.4 9A, Not Limited "but best choice given". Jan. '16 Test drive went great. So while financing, Find out the payments will be $50 more than I agreed to pay. Walked out, Only to find I have no plates on my then Buick. Found salesman, Not so politely requested to "put my plates back on my car I'm leaving!" Suddenly my payment went down $50 mo. By day three, I e-mailed salesman to return vehicle. Basically told me they don't do that. Had to wait 2 mos. for owners manual. Still never received disc part. Transmission sucked. Until the latest software upgrade. Gained 20-30 miles per tank of gas with that also. Rattles are MANY, And difficult to pinpoint the source. Terrible wind noise from drivers door. Have had adjusted once, But didn't help much. Aside from the noises, Highway ride is really close to the Buick Verano I traded. City not so much. BUT I avg. 2 mpg more than the Buick, With 4WD. But Jeep is 200 lbs. lighter. All said, I cannot wait to trade this thing off. Never should have been dumb enough to buy anyway. **UPDATE** Traded Rengade for 2016 Cherokee Sport , In September.

Comfort is what would be expected in a small Jeep. Ride is good. Mileage is great. Storage is almost non existent. Despite other reviews, acceleration, transmission, engine performance is acceptable. Good vehicle for everyday local and highway travel.

I'd thoroughly enjoyed my new Renegade for 6 weeks and the power door locks went out. I took the car into the dealership and it's been there almost 3 weeks. Apparently the 2016's don't have the electrical problems that the 2015's do. The dealership said I could now pick up the car - but the anti-theft alarm doesn't work. They did updates, replaced body control module, replaced tire pressure monitors, have talked to Chrysler multiple times (28 calls to STAR), are stumped. I've asked that they fix the car completely - it worked great for 6 weeks - or repurchase the car. I'm so disappointed. Gas mileage was great, around 30 mpg.

We bought this car 10/8/16. From the beginning to now we have had nothing but issues. I has been in the shop for 3 or more months that we have owned it due to problems. There is a noise coming from the steering column that the dealership has yet to figure out the last 5 times its been in the shop. There is a knocking noise coming from the front end. We have had the gas cap replaced three times. The traction control light comes on and it wont accelerate. The brakes squeak when in reverse. The hill assist light has came on to be services along with three other lights. The lumbar support wont work. I would not buy this vehicle or recommend anyone to even look into it. We have had nothing but issues and are now having to go through Chrysler to get anything done and possibly have them buy back our vehicle. We have owned it 6 months and had it in the shop over 6 times totally over three months with out it.

I might not have the most miles in the world, but their problem free so far and I think that all that matter. More than problem free, I loving everything about my car! All the techs and spec and the design is just great and having it makes me so happy. Gas isn't the best, but it's still pretty good for an SUV, better than I expected for a Jeep actually.

Wow, I've seen a whole lot of different cars in my life. I travel often and get to drive all sorts of vehicles on different continents. This was about the second worst experience of all... (the first being an under powered Hyundai i30) I'm 6ft tall and had to wheel the seat all the way back to fit in. Not a good start. The car is full of blind spots and the mirrors do not give you a good view around the car. Then driving: acceleration is great for such a dinky toy, breaking on the other hand is a vomit-inducing event: First time I actually thought it was going to do a head roll... Somehow the suspension is way to soft. Body roll is scary when taking corners. It's also very noisy as others have said: wind and tyre noise is annoying. I've no idea how this thing would hold off road, but at this size, I'd much rather drive a VW Golf... Seats are comfy though...

We have just over 13k miles now on our 2015 Renegade Sport 4x4 with the 2.4 liter engine and the 9 speed auto tranny. It had quality issues from the start and we simply do not have much faith in it. We also own a 2008 Jeep Commander that has been an excellent vehicle both on and off road. Our Renegade has suffered from wind noise at the driver's door since new. The transmission is sluggish. It has randomly died in traffic for no reason (guessing electronic issues). The door locks work most of the time but not always. The brakes squeal when moving at slow speeds or in reverse. Since it is built by Fiat in Italy, parts take forever to get if they are available at all. It is a cute little car but not one I would really recommend to someone who hasn't bought yet. The Renegade is more Fiat than it is Jeep in my opinion. I would be very hesitant to take it out into the mountains of Colorado (where we go in our Commander) for fear that it might not get us back out. If you want a Jeep, go with a Wrangler or maybe a Cherokee. I would recommend passing on the Renegade...I would if I had it to do over again. Update: Now at 19.5k miles, our Renegade is in the shop for the 4th time with continuing wind noise and window/door trim issues. The dealer appears to finally be taking it seriously now that we have opened a case with FCA and are discussing our options with a lemon law attorney. If they fail to repair it this time, we will file it as a lemon and see if we can force FCA to buy it back. We would trade out of the Renegade into a Wrangler in a heartbeat if the dealer would give us what is owed on it. Unfortunately that is likely going to require legal action. If you are considering the Renegade, I would encourage you to seriously reconsider and go with an actual Jeep and not what is in reality a Fiat. The Renegade is cute to look at but it is poor quality and riddled with problems.

Before I purchased I did some research, at that time the only complaints were regarding the Automatic Transmission. I decided to get the 6 manual. I have over 12, 00 miles and no problems at all. I accept this vehicle for what it is, a $23,000.00 SUV. It did very well in the Michigan snow this year, is smooth on the highway and I have nothing negative to report at this time.

my renegade took off on me one time- when I was finally able to get it stopped, I called the dealership to have it towed back to their lot. It only had 100 miles on it! One of their automotive experts worked on it and found out for himself how dangerous this vehicle was (is). I HATE THIS CAR!!! I was EXTREMELY luck to get out from underneath this "headache" with only losing $3,000!!! NEVER AGAIN!!

We wanted to buy our daughter a cute but dependable car. We bought a 2015 Jeep Renegade with less than 100 miles. Before it even reached 1000 miles the brakes were squeaking. Finally around 1500 miles we had the front brakes totally replaced. Not more than 2 months later we had to take it back for the back brakes to be totally replace with only 500 additional miles on the car. Now, three months later, we are getting ready to take it back because the electric locks will not work. On all three occasions the service department says, "Yes, we've been seeing a few Renegades with this problem". So much for dependable.

Let me get this out of the way first: if you want a Wrangler for the specific purpose of off roading...buy one. If you want a car with more comfort at the cost of some off roading ability...save your pennies and buy a Cherokee Trailhawk instead. My wife has one, and it is superior in every way to my Renegade with the exception of the price. Now, will the Renegade do very light off roading/two tracking? Yes. Is it really comparable to one of the bigger Jeeps? Not in my experience. With that being said, it's the best thing out there that is a daily driver that can leave the pavement for under 30 grand. The car is pretty nimble on the turns, but it's not particularly fast, nor is it particularly good on gas mileage. However, through inclement weather conditions (including Michigan snow) it handles quite nice, so I consider those an acceptable trade off. The front seats are roomy enough for two big guys, but don't plan on putting anyone in the backseat. Overall, this little Jeep is definitely worth a look, and frankly any negative about it can be said for every other mini crossover in the segment (small back seat, lack of cargo space, small engine etc). If you are an outdoors type on a budget the Renegade just might be your next car.

I can't express how much I loath this vehicle! It's literally just had it's first oil change, and it's about to go back to the service shop for the SECOND time. Severe transmission problems the first time, and it's still not fixed. The emergency brake keeps coming on every time it's put in park.

My wife purchased her Renegade 2/24/16. She has always loved Jeeps and this is her 4th (2 Wranglers, 1 Cherokee and now the Renegade). After 1 month of driving, she loves her little yellow "Bumble Bee", as she named it. This vehicle has exceptional fit and finish. We are impressed by the interior materials and the layout of all the controls. The engine is very responsive and fuel mileage is very good also (24 mpg mostly city driving). Our only concern about this vehicle is the 9 speed automatic transmission. I'm wondering if 9 speeds are really necessary and I'm a little concerned about reliability over the long haul. Other than that, this is a very impressive vehicle. My wife compared the Jeep Renegade to the Kia Soul and chose the Jeep Renegade because of its exceptional fit and finish and overall style. UPDATE: 7 months and 5k miles later and the Renedade is proving to be a good investment. Fuel mileage has been quite impressive in highway driving and somewhat less than expected in city driving, although it's very acceptable. We have had it to the dealership once for an oil change and a software update. Overall, quite pleased and we would highly recommend this vehicle.

I actually have owned a 2015 Renegade 4x4 Latitude since July 2015. It has been a joy to drive. I've put over 17K miles on it with no issues. I love the features and the interior design is fantastic. It has a quiet and smooth ride, and performed flawlessly in the snow. I've driven it on several road trips of 5+ hours with complete comfort, and the tech features, electronics really make it feel upscale. The instrument panel has the feel and look of high-end camping gear. And I regularly get 40+mpg on the highway, averaging 33 mpg on the long road trips. I love this little Jeep! SEPT 2016 UPDATE - My Jeep Renegade still performs flawlessly at 31K+ miles. People are pleasantly surprised when they get inside. I truly look forward to driving my Jeep every day.

This is my second renegade because the first one the tranny died at 160 miles. I gave jeep the benefit of the doubt and I went with a second one and boy I was wrong. The car has been back over 10 times for the transmission acting up . When driving the car at 27-32 mph and on 5th gear the gas pedal is vibrating horribly and the car keeps shifting badly. After taking it to the dealeeship this last time they told me that its the way those cars ride. After test driving a more expensive model from the lot that one was even worse . Worse mistake of my life and I hope ill be able to trade it because I dont know how much longer I can take it .

I bought the 4wd base model in white. After only a few hundred miles the transmission light would come on and I couldn't access my 4WD. It took them a month and several visits to figure out what the issue was and I live an hour from the dealership. On my way to work this morning the service engine light came on and once again I have no 4WD. I've had a problem with this vehicle about every 3 to 4 thousand miles.

The Jeep Renegade is a Fiat with 4 wheel drive, It handles like a wrangler and I think it can do most things a stock wangler can do in more comfort. The design is sexy and fun. I have had my Renegade for about a month and so far so good. I wish the back seats would fully lay down for better cargo space, existing cargo space is very small and doesn't hold much of anything.

Love my Jeep Renegade!

I have owned my Renegade since August 2015 and still love it! It's cute, has a little zip when you need it and is good on gas. My husband is 6ft and he has plenty of room in the front, and he has had to sit in the back once or twice and was fine. I have two boys 9 and 5 and they are plenty comfortable in the back. The overall look of it is what caught my eye and I love that it's a little rugged and cute at the same time. The only downside that I could say is it not coming with a spare tire kit. I had a flat a few months ago and was shocked that there was no spare, jack, wrench or anything! I had to have it towed from my driveway to a local tire shop. The woman there was surprised it didn't come with anything and told me if I would have tried to use the kit that blows it back up it would have messed up the tire pressure sensor and that would have cost $100 or so to fix. I hear that a lot of new cars are not coming equipped with spares anyways. I have not had any problems that everyone else seems to be having. No key fab problems, no transmission problems etc. I have noticed when I reverse out of my driveway in the morning and brake it squeaks once and that's it. Nothing else throughout the day. I have about 6300 miles on it now and overall am very happy with it!!!

Please, please, If anybody is interesting in this car, PLEASE stop, look for a better alternative, seriously, I purchased a Jeep Renegade Limited 2015 brand new, last Feb. 14, 2016 on presidents day weekend, today, 10 days after and with 650 miles, the car suddenly stop and the engine shuts down in the middle of the highway attempting to my own safety and other drivers safety due to a huge transmission oil leakage. In a brand new car this is totally not acceptable.

I just got the OMAHA ORANGE Trailhawk, so far , so good, only about 300 miles on it. this is my first jeep, and hopefully it will not be a mistake, i have read many review, and it seems the TRAILHAWK owners are the most happy, except 1 person, i think. I have owned Mitsubhishi's for the last 25 years,and they are so reliable, never a problem, Hopefully this JEEP, can compare to them. As i had not other options on the Mitsubishi , as i have an Outlander, and they do not sell the Pajero, or Pajero sport here. i love the interior and the funky style of the Renegade, it is different from your grandmas jeep. hope it last for a long time, i voiced my concerns to the dealership, abou the reviews, battery, brakes, fob and engien, they gave me a 100,000 mile warranty, 5 year free oil change and mainteance, and 5 year road side, and other things. so i hope i am covered, but who knows. But i am happy for now,

Let me start this review by stating that I just traded in my 2015 Trailhawk after 10 months of ownership and 11,485 miles, and I couldn't be happier! I entered my purchase back in April 2015 thinking this was going to be the answer to my many vehicle needs: 4x4/offroad capability, adequate cargo space for trips to the beach with the dog, great gas mileage for my weekly commutes to sales calls, and a reliable vehicle that held it's value for years to come, due to the Jeep name pedigree. Boy was I wrong. My problems started the evening I brought it home. I noticed the next morning after purchase that there was a puddle of clear liquid under the front of the car. I thought it was residual dripping from being washed the day before, but the dripping hadn't stopped after 24 hours. A quick smell of the liquid revealed it was alcohol based and not water. I discovered that the washer fluid pump was leaking. After a quick and unsatisfying call to the dealership, where they wanted me to make an appointing for 2 weeks out, I removed the pump myself and sealed with black RTV silicone to solve for the problem. Flash forward a few months an a couple thousand miles, and I started getting an awful screeching sound when starting the vehicle from cold. It would intermittently happen at first, but became increasingly more frequent over the next month, and eventually screeched constantly. My first trip to the dealership yielded the response of "we cannot recreate the sound, therefore cannot resolve for it". Funny that the next morning after returning home, it made the same terrible sound. A second trip to the dealership, and request of a different technician, revealed that the serpentine belt was cracked. It was replaced an the screeching went away. During this visit, they also serviced the front brakes, which made a terrible squeal under moderate to light braking once they had warmed up. Very annoying and embarrassing. I haven't event gotten to the worst part about the Jeep Renegade in my opining, which is really a two-part issue. First is the terribly small fuel tank. At only 12.7 gallons, I had to fill up twice as often as a companion vehicle during a trip from Florida to Tennessee. Really made for a slow trip needing to stop every 300 miles. The range of the vehicle left a lot to be desired. Second, and what I feel is the absolute biggest issue with the Renegade (in Trailhawk trim at least), is the drivetrain combination of the 2.4L, 4 cyl. engine and the 9 speed transmission. Accelerating at speed, passing on the highway, and overall highway drivability is the worst that I've ever experienced. You literally have to floor the accelerator to achieve any passing capability, and passing vehicles on a 2 lane, dotted line road is beyond terrifying. I can't begin to describe how terrible this motor and transmission combination is. The computer constantly tries to put the car in the highest gear possible to save on fuel, which causes CONSTANT downshifts. I can't imagine the durability or longevity of the transmission internals due to the accelerated levels of wear and tear that this causes. I could spend hours nitpicking this vehicle, but I'll spare the readers and my fingers. All told, I'm beyond thrilled that I was able to trade out of this vehicle. Unfortunately, the Renegade dropped 1/3 of it's value (as mentioned in other reviews) in less than 10 months. Be weary/cautious of this, as it does not carry the Jeep pedigree/name into it's resale value. Buyer beware and best of luck with your decision!

Great Purchase for price

Purchased this vehicle Sep 2015. No issues so far. It's actually a Latitude with the 2.4L engine, Cold Weather 2 package, upgraded 9-speaker system, passive entry, 2WD. I've had no issues so far. Road noise is higher than I am accustomed to. It's nimble on the highway with a little lag, but much less than the turbo. Idle's a little rough. Brakes squealed occasionally for about the first 2000 miles then went away. Average mileage has been around 23 mpg. The Uconnect system works well, voice recognition and blue tooth, etc. I've had no electrical, engine or suspension issues thus far (knock on wood). One minor issue is the guide lines in the back-up camera disappear sometimes.

We purchased the Renegade approximately 4 months ago. The vehicle had 2400 miles on it when the service passive entrance system warning memo came on. I contacted the dealership to inquire why the light would come on so early in the life to the jeep. We set up an appointment to have the system checked. We were told that there was an update on the system so the techs ran the update. Upon the completion of the update we were told that there were a few more updates an were asked if we could leave the vehicle for at least 4 more hours. We agreed. In approximately 4 hours the dealer contacted us to say the vehicle was ready. Upon arriving home the service passive entrance system warning memo came on. We contacted the dealer who wanted the vehicle the next day. Again we had the system checked and were told that Chrysler reps told the dealership to replace a dash module. We left and once again with minutes the warning memo came on. Approximately 4 days later we returned the vehicle to the dealer for the passive entrance system repair. The vehicle was tied up for most of the day for the repair. The next day my wife was preparing to leave for a doctors appointment. She got into the vehicle and a warning memo appeared on the dash that the fob was not recognized. Fortunately I left my fob which happened to work. I contacted the dealership and was told to bring the vehicle back in to be checked. We took the vehicle in and I suggested that they take both fobs an reprogram the system. We sat in the dealership for over 2 hours when the service writer informed us that the internet connection to Chrysler was down and that we needed to bring the vehicle back. On the following Monday we made another appointment for the fob reprogram. On Thursday of that week, 4 days later, the fob that I use would not allow me to unlock the doors. My fob was not recognized by the system. On this past Friday I took the vehicle in for the 5th time for the same issue. It is now Monday and the dealer still has our vehicle. I feel that the lemon law should be considered for this vehicle. The dealer is adamant about not considering the lemon law as they claim they have fixed it. During the course of our arguments about it being a lemon I was made an offer on the vehicle to have the dealer trade us out of it. I stunned to discover that the Renegade with 3000 miles on it an being in our possession for four months has lost 1/3 of its value. The dealers comments regarding the vehicle is for us to just keep bringing its back so they can swap out parts until it is repaired. We are still unsure of the vehicle. About a month ago I went to start the Renegade. I put my foot on the brake pedal, pushed the starter button and the dash changed from English to Metric. I went through the book and did not find any hints as to how to reverse the switch. I went through the menu and hit reset on the dash board display nothing. I do not trust the dealership so I lived with it until about a month later I once again went to start the vehicle. I placed my foot on the brake pedal and the emergency brake automatically set. I started the vehicle and was able to release the brake. Every time we pushed the start stop button the brake would automatically set. My wife took the vehicle to the dealership to get it washed and said something to the service writer who jumped on it immediately and spent about an hour correcting the issue. Just waiting for the next episode. We still have no faith in the vehicle.

At 125 miles, car started jerking and sputtering. Took back to dealer who did software update for transmission. One week later, loud squealing brakes. Dealer said they're fine, common with a new car. Four months later, while re-fueling, the entire capless tank housing came out with the gas nozzle at the pump! Dealer replaced part. Brakes still squaling loudly with no fix!!! Really regretful. A month after that, fuel filler door fell off. Pillar was defective and had to be replaced. Sun visor snapped off. Now, another recall issued. Brakes squeak embarrasingly loud with no fix.

awesome vehicle

always remember to change the oil every 3500 miles and follow the manufacturing recomendations. had a 2004 jeep liberty before the renagade and had 200000 miles on it before i bought the renegade. just remember keep that oil changed. you will love the renegade.

When this model came out there was no doubt in my mind I wanted it. so I purchased it 6 months ago. Since then the keys wouldn't unlock the car. Had to manually unlock and lock doors. Dealership finally fixed that. Time to time it does it again.. Now the transmission jerks and literally gives you whiplash when you come to a complete stop and go again.. Took it to the dealership for the 3rd time the guy working on it says the transmission needed to be flashed.. What a joke this car needs flashing constantly ,I waste hours at dealership.. This morning I go out to leave the transmission light is on. Very disappointed. Do your research. The cars have BIG PROBLEMS. I was better off buying a used car than brand new.. Terrible experiences
