2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: 10,000 Miles
by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on January 13, 2016
We may have been low on miles in our long-term 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk a few days ago, but that's not the case anymore. I spent a few days driving the Renegade to the Detroit Auto Show (also known as NAIAS) and took the long route.
I traveled the northern route, which had the extra miles the Jeep needed. Two days into the trip, it crossed 10,000 miles somewhere in the Idaho backcountry. Before I go in to the details of the trip and how the Jeep performed, here's a recap of maintenance during the last few months.
Early in the test, the Renegade developed a rattle in the rear. That one was fixed DIY-style by Editor Carlos Lago. A few weeks later, the Jeep got up-close-and-personal with a Toyota Celica. It wasn't really regular maintenance, but the Jeep was out of commission for awhile for repairs.
It was smooth sailing until recently, when the Jeep went in for an early (and pretty pricey) first service at a local dealership service center. Stay tuned for more impressions from the Renegade's cross-country-and-back road trip and all the snow-covered photos you can handle.
