Howdy,

Anyone have one of the newer Jeep renegades?

How do they hold up, how rugged?

I like the looks but I just don't know about a car built in Italy.

Again, opinions from owners pleeze, not rumors.

Thanks ahdotime.

Best

CR

Chili Ron,

They are pretty popular in my area. So popular a $19,000 car goes for $30k at the dealers here. I have no experience with them other than pricing one and passing on the "generous" offer.

My personal opinion is I'd rather have a Wrangler. If it's primary use is going to be highway, the C&D review states you will probably find it underwhelming and noisy.

 

Having driven other fiat (formally known as Dodge) seven speeds (this one in auto is a 9 speed) I can say I really don't like them. They are always shifting and almost never find the right gear for what you want to do. A 9 speed would likely be worse.

 

Since the buyout, I have found Dodge interiors to be uncomfortable and having a cheap feel.

 

Every single one I've driven (2 rams) have never made it to an oil change without being low on oil. Both of those were almost brand new company trucks that I got for my work vehicle with less than 10k on each.

 

Just my opinions, YMMV.

Wouldn't have aught else!
