You don’t buy a Jeep Renegade unless you are looking to drive an adventurous vehicle that stands out from the pack, but for some owners this rebellious 4-wheel drive SUV has disappointments after it leaves the dealership.
2015 and 2016 Jeep Renegade owners often complain that the transmission gives them a rough ride and shifting issues take some getting used to. It can be a game changer for some drivers, but not all owners of this fiesta little SUV.
Owners who have not been happy head to the dealership after becoming frustrated that the car shifts too fast in low gears and too slow in the higher gears. The response is typically something like “you need to get used to the car.” But noisy, sluggish transmissions are not normal despite what you may be told, said Lemon Law Attorney James Johnson.
“Dealerships will try to brush you off when they can’t fix something, but don’t discount the problems you are having and wait for the manufacturer’s warranty to run out,” Johnson said.
Other problems reported with the Jeep Renegade include electrical problems, brakes, drivetrain and interior accessory issues.
It’s vital that you take your car to the dealership for repairs and keep records, Johnson explains. The California lemon law attorney advises that if you experience the same problem and it’s unfixable, you may have a lemon law claim. Also, a lemon law claim may only need need one or two attempts to fix if the problems you are having are a safety issue.
2017 Jeep Renegade
The latest version of the Jeep Renegade SUV is sporty, but somewhat boxy. Just like its earlier predecessors, it was designed to be both an off-road and street vehicle.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) created this smaller 5-seat SUV for people looking for a sporty off-road vehicle with the classic styling of the iconic Jeep and its 7-bar grille, but they don’t want to break the bank.
The Renegade has some new options for its 2017 models. The Keyless Go feature, the HID headlights as well as the new UConnect infotainment system.
Unlike the larger mid-sized Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV and the popular Jeep Wrangler, the Renegade competes in the small SUV market with other top-selling Jeep brands such as the Patriot and the Compass.
The 2017 Renegade also competes with other auto maker’s smaller SUV models such as the Hyundai Tucson, Chevrolet Trax and Subaru Crosstrek.
These smaller SUVs don’t offer much room in the backseat, making them less attractive to families who need more space.
