2017 Jeep Renegade review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The subcompact Renegade SUV may look like a pure American Jeep, but underneath is a modified platform shared with the Fiat 500L that Jeep calls its “small-wide 4×4 architecture.” The five-seat Renegade is built in Italy and offers a choice of two four-cylinder engines, a manual or automatic transmission, and front- or four-wheel drive. The Trailhawk trim level is equipped for off-roading and its four-wheel-drive system includes a low range. Competitors include the Chevrolet Trax, Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.
New for 2017
Keyless Go push-button start is now standard while high-intensity-discharge headlights and automatic high-beam headlights are available.

Great Car for the Money

I Really like this car I bought it used and have driven it for a good couple of months Car works great love the jeep style on the outside and inside you'll never forget what your driving! Two complaint's are that the car rumbles quite bad and my cars transmission likes to have hiccups but everything else about the car is great.


Good vwhicle

85000 miles on it and the only issue has been a starter problem, it’s going bad and I will replace soon. The moulding at the front of the removable roof panels started to separate. Other than that it has been an awesome vehicle and I feel like the 2.4 has plenty of power.


Worst car

This is the worst car I’ve ever owned. Ever time I turn around it’s in the shop. I have brought the jeep in the shop every 2000 miles to get it all checked because he’s using a lot of oil and nobody wants to do anything thing about it. I would never ever I want another Jeep again. I will not. Recommend this a car to anyone.
