2017 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

I am pretty happy with the car. Nice looking exterior and very comfortable interior. For it's size it is roomier than you think but it is a very compact car. Entertainment system feels like an old system, no apple car play or Android auto. Uconnent is the worst. Not a fan of the engine. Very underpowered and the 9-speed transmission just sounds like it could fail at any moment. The transmission can be jerky and feels like it's always searching for gears. Although, it is pretty quiet and very drives smooth. Luckily, I haven't had any issues yet.

2017 Jeep Renegade Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

Love the looks on this car however its built like your typical Chrysler pos. No engine problems yet but the transmission cant take much more jerking without becoming very costly. After 15k miles on it the front rotors both sides are horribly scored. I have a Cobalt with 210k miles on it with 2nd pair of rotors that look better then these things. Not suppose to be have these issues with a car this new. Acceleration is garbage, turn radius is garbage fuel mileage for a 4 cylinder is really garbage at 24mpg. The software is slow and glitchy. Its really been a pretty bad vehicle so far.

2017 Jeep Renegade Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 9A)


Review

I have a 2017 Sport model with the 2.4L 9 speed automatic. Have had car for 1 year now with only 6900 miles on it. I have never owned a Jeep before and didn't know what to expect.... All I can say is WOW...… what a great little car. Does have a bit of wind noise at freeway speeds but that is to be expected with a boxy body style. Ride is comfortable, acceleration is good, and it is easy and fun to drive....

2017 Jeep Renegade Sport 4dr SUV (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

DON'T DO IT! I owned my Renegade for a year- commuting to and from work - a couple short road trips - nothing crazy. I don't race or take this car off road. Then the clutch gave out - with less than 11000 miles on it. I had bought the car with several warranties on it - only to learn that the clutch isn't covered at all under any of them. Also after shopping around to get the work done I learned that its such a poorly made part that no other shop will touch it since they can't guarantee the work. so now I'm being grossly over charged for the work with no other option. - I wouldn't recommend getting this car or working with the people that sell them

Review

The transmission on these cars is complete garbage, acceleration is non-existent, the clunky transmission is constantly jerking between gears, technology is completely obsolete compared to other 2017 base-level trims. Multiple trips to dealer to address transmission clunkiness and their excuse is always that these cars have an “adaptive transmission” that learns how you drive, so if you gun it to merge onto an interstate once, the car will assume you always drive that way. Good try, Jeep. The car looks cool, but performance is shoddy at best.
