I took a test drive and I absolutely loved the vehicle. It was all black (interior and exterior) with nearly every option I wanted. The engine was responsive while the transmission was quick to shift, maybe too quick. I had to watch the acceleration while driving the first mile or two. I took the Renegade onto the freeway and cracked open the sunroof. This particular model have the removable panels. The car got up to speed briskly, but the sunroof, once opened, let in a lot of outside noise. If you purchase this vehicle, be advised you will be cranking up the volume on the sound system. The hood seems big, but that’s part of the Jeep experience. The infotainment worked flawlessly, with a large 8.4 inch uConnect being easy to decipher. It has a fast response time. Seating was very comfortable, with the power leather seats making finding a perfect position easy. Looking around the interior, it felt spacious, even with the black headliner. The A/C worked well, considering I took the test drive during a record-breaking heatwave in Las Vegas. Next, the rear seating area. I was able to sit back there with some room to spare. I’m 6’1”, and I was able to sit behind the driver’s seat with a couple inches to spare. There is plenty of headroom for everyone, front and back. So, if I ever need to sit I the rear (which would be rare, if ever), I could be reasonably comfortable. I checked out the cargo area and found it to be more than adequate. There is a compartment under the cargo floor to store the removable sunroof panels (with a sleeve to put them in) which I found to be a great bonus. Going to Sam’s Club for a run would not be a problem for me. Upon returning to the dealer, I took some time to look at the exterior in more detail. All the Easter eggs aside, I really like the look of the Renegade. The wheels were 19”, painted a granite color. It really gives it a polished look. Shiny and gleaming in the hot sun, it stands out quite well. What prevented me from purchasing? The dealership. The car was discounted by “$5K”, but that was due to the rebate. They didn’t even bother to negotiate with me. While I was upside down on my current vehicle, the was no way in hell I was going to pay over thirty grand ($34K to be exact) for a Renegade that has been sitting on their lot for six months. This was even with their rebate. Jim Marsh Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ram lost a customer. I ended up finding the exact same Renegade with the exact same options at a dealer 250 miles away (Lake Elsinore Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge/Ram) for four grand less. They gave me a better rebate and took an additional $4500 discount. Oh, and I used TrueCar to get an additional thousand dollars off the price. With my less than perfect credit, I was still able to buy the Renegade for significantly less that what Jim Marsh tried to shackle me into. I’ll be driving my new black Jeep Renegade home in the coming days. When shopping around, take your time. Do your research. Know the pros and cons of the make and model you want, read the reviews, take the car/trick for a real test drive and shop around dealers in the area. I saved over $8K off MSRP by being patient and sticking to my guns. Thank you for reading this review and hope this was helpful.

Love my Trailhawk

I bought this car a little over a month ago and I love it so far. It has better mileage than my last SUV and has much better and updated tech. The A/C is great and I have no problem with the handling or the speed, but it does take some getting used to. The best part is the exterior styling, the off road and 4x4 capability, Apple Car Play, and cool little Jeep easter eggs all over the place. I have 0 complaints with the quality of the interior and there’s plenty of head and leg room up front. The cloth seats are comfortable and UConnect Infotainment system is very easy to use. Price wise I got a really good deal on it and the only cons I have are the cargo room, the confused 9 speed automatic transmission and that the Infotainment screen goes blank in extreme heat but once the interior is cooled and the screen is rebooted, then all is well. That may need to be dealt with at the Dealership soon but otherwise I love my Renegade and am really looking forward to taking it off roading and am confident come winter that my Renegade Trailhawk will get me to where I need to go.

Jeep Renegade Latitude 1.3 (not Limited)

We chose the 2020 Jeep Renegade Latitude 4x4 due to features and lease price around 300 a month. Jeep has reduced the price quite a bit on the 2020 year. It has a lot of Latitude features like the bigger Cherokee. Have not driven it much yet, but so far we like it more, compared to my old Patriot. Update; I have driven it the past week and it has no problems with acceleration or transmission. It is great for either highway or city driving. It is every bit a small SUV, and this the sixth jeep we have had in our garage. Kim has the 2016 Jeep Cherokee which is far better than the Mazda CX5 she had. Overall, I give any negative reviews on this Jeep a thumbs down for bias. This jeep is fun to drive and it performs well in traffic. We don't have any passengers besides the two of us, so we don't use the back seats much. Maybe in three years we will get the model with a tow package and make a trip. I like the added altitude package in this jeep. One thing I don't like is there is no full sized spare in many current vehicles, unless you order it or get a tow package. The tire repair kit is OK, but not for long trips where you may need a real spare. I will be getting a full spare tire and wheel soon. MPG may get better after more highway driving.

Love the look, but leaves a lot to be desired!

Ac vents only in the front. This does not work in Tx heat. My kids are sweating in the back and I’m freezing up front. This car does not come with a spare!!! I guess I’m not used to that not being a standard feature. Not even a donut? I got a flat within the first few months and had to get the vehicle towed because I didn’t have a spare! Low acceleration and hard shifting and already have an electrical short in my running lights.Also the carpeting in this car is the worst I’ve ever seen It’s like Velcro for dirt. Even using professional vacuums does not get it very clean and if you have a dog that ever rides in your car I’d advice having covers or you will never get the hair out!!!Over all not super happy to pay that much and already have this many problems. If I did it over I would not buy this vehicle.

Just the right size. the only complaint is the seats that pick up every piece of lint in the air. Hard to keep clean. I had them install leather seats and its much better. Its a shame they don't give you the option
