We test drove this model in manual today and were surprised. It handles well, blocks out road noise, has some weight to stay on the road, radio is nice, looks small on the outside but inside has space. Very impressed with it driving.
After shopping for weeks online I went to Abeloff and the rest is history. The contact through email with Maylen was absolutely outstanding and then when we came to the dealership she set us up with Brendon Myers. After a few test drives we found a 2015 Nissan Rogue that we loved. The day I came to pick the car up my salesman Brendon asked if I could hang for a few minutes because they decided to put new tires on the vehicle for me before I took it home for no extra charge. The experience from top to bottom was outstanding and I highly recommend this dealership and Brendon.
Left a Nissan Rogue and Subaru Crosstrek for this

Great SUV. I go off road but don't need a giant SUV. I drove a Rogue in 2008-13, and Subaru Crosstrek 2013-18. Researched the ratings and although it's been over a decade since I've owned a below average American car, I test drove the Renegade Ltd. and fell in love. Great room, great options. I don't need to floor it and go 0-60 in 4 seconds (as no one should) so was not concerned about super fast acceleration. Solid gas mileage around town. Handles/drives/feels well and good. I highly recommend. I may go back to Japanese cars in the future, but for now I'm happy with a Jeep product. I bought a 2018 that was a 7 mn rental car with no issues at a Jeep dealership and 20,000 miles so I did get the high end Ltd. for about 8K less...so I also have no depreciation remorse. Would I have bought at 30K? Possibly. But used under a year is a gift.
I found colonial auto sales because they had the exact car I was looking for. They’re in formal and extremely honest approach was very refreshing for a car dealership. I would completely recommend them to anybody.
A fun and practical SUV for Minnesota

What I really like is the controls are not complicated, the look of the renegade is different than the other SUVs in the same class, to me the others all look very similar. I replaced this with a jeep liberty which I loved, and I haven't owned it long enough to give it 5 stars on reliability or value for the money. But if it's as good as my liberty it will get that rating later.
We ended up spending a lot of time here, but it was because we weren't completely prepared. The gentleman who helped us, Ian, was an excellent salesman. He didn't push or rush us for any reason, and he was incredibly patient while gathered everything that we needed. We ended up driving away in with a new car and paying what we had in mind when we walked in. If you're looking for a new car and don't want the pressure of a greedy salesman I would highly recommend this dealership.
Problem since warranty was up

Decent looking and comfortable. However, the driver’s side heated seat glitches, Bluetooth glitches and mutes itself, while driving it jerks when shifting (it’s an automatic), it feels like it’s running out of gas and is going to stall (has stalled twice), and after owning it one year, the check engine light is already on.
We had a great experience with frank at star auto mall on Nazareth pike. Thank you frank for finding us the right vehicle for our needs. It was a pleasure working with you. We will definitely tell our families and friends to come see you if they need a vehicle. Thank you frank
Fun Mini SUV

Just picked up my 2016 Renegade Limited and I love it! I had a Liberty before then traded that in for a Subaru Impreza. That did break my heart. The Subaru was good but I felt way to close to the ground, felt every bump. That's another review. So first off this Jeep feels so strong and sturdy surprised because it's an entry model. I love the interior, the heated steering wheel, seats, the stereo is awesome! The power retractable sunroof is pretty cool too. I'm just so happy I went with this vehicle. I hope it will last me a long time with all these computer upgrades...it does make me nervous. It's very classy in it's class, I love it! ?
A little background….. never purchased a Dodge of any type… always been a Tundra proud owner.
Tundra was recently totaled by a driver who was more focused on eating than driving and rear ended it when he panicked and slammed the accelerator instead of the brakes (true story)
We went shopping right away as I needed to truck for the business.
Shopped at Ford, Toyota (I did mentioned I’m loyal to Tundra,not necessarily to all Toyota products though), GM and Chevy.
We stopped by John Johnson and fell in love with the ’18 power wagon.
Sent emails to each dealer regarding the model I saw in their respective lots.
I want to be clear… sent same body of message to each with only changing the line where I detail the make/model I wanted best pricing and please not to waste my time.
ONLY John Johnson provided an OTD price! (Out the Door) and it was lower than I expected.
Email with sales manager (Sandy Keiper) were escalated to her sales manager (Jeff Bash) without my request!
Drove to meet them as they were already in the ballpark of what I was willing to pay for this vehicle
NO ONE SITS IN A HIDDEN OFFICE! THIS IS A FIRST FOR ME after purchasing vehicles for over 38 years!!!
Right there I requested yet another obscene price drop and both the sales manager and the GM (Scott Meshulam) do not question my request, but immediately begin going over what and where they can pull the difference!!!
Please understand my background is in Comp Sci and Mathematics so I had already pulled the sheet on this particular truck with all the options and the price they had originally quoted was what I would get if I purchased it from the factory floor!!!! And yet they dug deeper!
The professionalism and just plan “X Factor” on how this group deals with you as a person just turned me into a MOPAR for LIFE provided I can purchase from these 3 people!
That pretty much says it all

It’s a nice vehicle

I needed a vehicle for winter time as I live in Wisconsin and did not want to drive my built WRX in the snow and ice so I purchased the trailhawk edition of the renegade. Mine has the removable roof panels and upgraded audio. I love the heated seats and steering wheel, especially when they turn on automatically when you activate the remote start function if it’s too cold outside. The ONLY gripe I have about mine is that I’m not 100% hyped on the orange paint.
I think star auto mall is one of the best dealerships in united states. I will take the 4 hours drive any day to come to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to buy a car from frank. FRANK is truly an asset to star auto mall. THANK YOU FRANK

I seen the complaints on this car but I have had (knock on wood) very few problems with it. I'm 6 ft tall and weigh 190 and I feel very comfortable in it. It is well off the ground and very easy to get into and out of. I have the larger engine but not 4 wheel drive sport model and it handles well in wet conditions. It's fun to drive and I think I'll keep it.
My experience here was wonderful. It was my first time buying a car of my own and I didn't feel pressured into anything. They walked me through the whole process, and I felt like I got a great deal. Mike, the salesman, was so helpful and accomodating. I definitely recommend this dealership!
Very comfortable and safe

This car is fully satisfiying in all ways, I love it in every which way possible and extremely grateful to have the expirience in being able to drive it!
Bryce and his team at John Johnson Dodge go above and beyond to provide family like accomodations, comfortable low pressure buying is the way to go! Thanks guys! Big shoutout to Nick Zavros for expediting this whole process and taking the hassle out of the purchasing experience Johns crew is the best around reason why I drive over an hour to get here
A fun vehicle to drive!
by Glopot from Dallas, TX

This Jeep Renegade is a fun vehicle to drive! It is very comfortable for a Jeep, and its yellow color is very stylish. It has all the bells and whistles, such as MySky Roof which has two removable sections along with storage. It also has an automatic sun roof which opens at the push of a button. Its 4-wheel drive is amazing, and the settings adjust automatically to driving conditions. I was also amazed when my heating package turned itself on when it was very cold outside: my steering wheel and driver's seat became warm and toasty! The sound system is premium and sounds amazing also. This Jeep is not a speed demon with the 4-cyinder engine, but it drives great and saves on gas!
Sussex Honda is the most honest and straight forward car dealership. The price they quoted me, was the price I paid. No hidden fees. They even delivered the car to my home - an hour an 20 minutes away. Erica and Danny are a true pleasure to work with. I would absolutely go there again.

This vehicle is exactly what I was looking for. Great gas mileage, much roomier inside than expected (I am 6'3"), has plenty of pep for a smaller engine, will be a great vehicle for commuting to work but versatile enough for running errands, taking trips or just going out for a fun drive. Completely satisfied!
Very smooth process purchasing my new vehicle. Very courteous and gave the best deal possible. Applied all rebates and incentives. Stand behind their products! Great staff!Sales representative Justin sales manager Jose are a father and son duo and great at what they do!
Pretty good so far

Only owned for 2 months so far. Only complaint so far is that the language on the dash changed to Italian on its own. Apparently this is an ongoing problem with this Jeep. Changed it back easily enough but hope not to have this happen often.

My entire experience at this location was great;
The staff was extremely kind and their intentions were pure, they worked quickly and efficiently.
I'm in LOVE

I love everything about this car. It's not overwhelming and its elegantly designed. It has the power I want and is very comfortable. The leather seats are beautiful and I feel classy driving this vehicle. I could not be happier. Also there are little fun things all over the place in the jeep. Like big foot is on the back window and a jeep is crawling up the side on the windshield. It seems like they had a lot of fun designing this vehicle.
Thank you Jeep :)
The customer service experience was incredible. I would like to mention who was part of that team, Jim Desimone, general manager, Nicholas Duque Bdc rep, Marc Labow my sales consultant and finalizing it with Marcelis Harris in finance.
Great job guys!!! Can't thank you enough.
Please don't hesitate to visit this dealership.

A great car for climbing mountains on the weekend and commuting to work throughout the week. Only complaint is limited legroom in the back seat.
Miguel was very helpful, he has great customer service and helped me get a really good deal on a car! I was very pleased and greatful for his help!
Only had it a month, love it so far!

This CUV/SUV meets all my needs.
I was able to get it with a manual 6 speed transmission, which I absolutely love.
It has a very spacious interior for a car its size. The seats could be a bit more comfortable, but they seem well put together and durable.
I drive about 75 miles a day going to and from work. About 60 of that is in the freeway. Even with my lead foot I'm averaging above 24 mpg.
My overall satisfaction with this vehicle is high initially and I'm hoping it stays that way for the duration of my time owning it.
Justin hydro mad all the difference in my transaction he was very helpful from financing to setting up the my test drive I would recommend him to anyone visiting this dealership without him I might have shop somewhere else thanks alot justin

I really enjoy it. Plenty of front seat room. Great brakes. Rear storeage is very good.
I own the RENEGADE SPORT and it comes w/ a tire inflator , not a spare (???). I paid $322.00 and got a spare tire kit. Also , no satillite radio avail. on my model (????).
I visited Ray Price Mt. Pocono and leased a 2018 Ford Escape. Mathew C. was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very professional and friendly! He made the process very smooth and answered all of my questions. I am very happy with my new car and my experience at Ray Price Mt. Pocono! Thank you to the staff and again a special thanks to Mathew C. !
Very comfortable ride.

This jeep is a comfortable ride. Smooth on the bumps. I have had jeeps for many years. This one is just the right size for myself and my husband. Back seats lay down for plenty of cargo room or to travel with our large size dog.
Justin provided excellent service in selling me a new car and replacing my old BMW. I would definitely recommend this dealership and Justin for anyone buying a new car.
Doesnt feel like a compromise

Great combo of daily driver and off road vehicle a true SUV. Every time I drive it, I find something else to like about it’s design. Turbo lag is annoying but becomes less noticeable as I drive it and is not as evident at highway speed
