Reliability of Jeep Renegade and FCA

Ask the People Who Own One:

2015 - 2017 Jeep Renegade

Are there any Renegade owers (especially those that have a 2015 or 2016 model. Is the car reliable in your opinion? Has it had to be repaired for minor or major things more than you think should be for a new car?

I'm think of buying this 2017 Jeep RenegadeI've seen the carfax, drove it twice, called a few mechanics about these cars the the Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep brnad in general, and gave the car a very close inspection myself.

29k miles Trail Hawk trim, rental car before it went on the local lot. I'm getting very mixed reports of reliability and all that. I've spoken with some friends and general opinion is to stay away from Jeeps and any FCA vehicle.

This vehicle is going to replace my current and wil be my only car - I don't have a daily communte but I drive enough. I will also be taking it up the mountains and light duty off roading. I intend on doing as much of the basic maintaince myself as I can.

I think it is a decent purchase for my needs, however I'm concerned about it being able to last me relavitvely trouble free for the next 5 years.

Owners please chime in.

That Jeep is $2-3k overpriced. It is made by Fiat in Italy. It is very low quality and I suggest looking at almost any other car than this. Also the fact that it was a rental car means that this is probably worse than even the typical salvage title car.

What do you like about this car compared to the others you looked at?

I own a 2017 Jeep Renegade Deserthawk (Trailhawk). The car has been rock solid since the day I bought it. I live in an area of dirt roads with a lot of washboard surfaces. I am now at 22,500 miles and not a single squeek or rattle. The car has only had recommended oil changes and tire rotations. Mileage over the last 10K has been 25.4mpg.

We have a lot of out of town guests that visit us here in North Scottsdale. I always let our visiting friends borrow my Jeep Renegade. I always get positive comments about how solid the little Jeep is. They all prefer the Renegade to my wife's Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. I have two friends that are interested in buying my little Renegade when the time comes... That says it all.
