Definitely the best experience I???ve had buying a car from a dealer. I found my truck online and went in the next day to check it out. Jordan greeted us as soon as we arrived and was very friendly and professional. They were not pushy and ensured that we got the payments we were comfortable with. Will definitely check them out again during our next car search.
Very capable car

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.
Great service fast timing on state Insp at 1st day of month normally when u go to places 1st of the month for state inspections your car is there all day.
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.
Although I was satisfied with the work done on my vehicle I was disappointed with my interaction with the service staff. Initially Carlos was very positive but things went forward not so much. I have concerns regarding communication between the staff members. When I am quoted one price and upon check out I am told something else, then when I think that the situation is corrected and try to checkout a second time the amount is still not what I was originally quoted. As a customer I should not have to work to get a price honored that I was originally promised. Regardless of the lack of communication between the staff members. I understand that we were customers that were acquired by your purchase of Perry Buick but to be honest this experience was NOT a very good first impression. Hopefully you will do better moving forward. Otherwise I???m going to have to find somewhere else to take my business.
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!
Took from 2:15 in the afternoon till 10 PM that night! Was just trying to buy my leased vehicle, not really a new one.
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.
I had the best experience with Checkered Flag Auto Outlet. This is my second time using Checkered Flag as our dealership. Our salesman, Allen Belanger, was the best salesman I've ever dealt with. He was genuine, answered all of our questions, and never pushed anything on us. He called us as soon as the vehicle we were interested in was ready to be viewed. The whole team at the Auto Outlet made us feel like they were a close knit family, and we became part of it. They even helped entertain my one year old daughter! I will continue to recommend Checkered Flag to all of my family and friends in the area!

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!
Charles Barker has been a God send. From the very first phone call I received from Stino up until I drove off with my new baby, I was kept in the loop about EVERYTHING. I admit I was a challenge with my requirements as well as not the best credit out here BUT Stino prevailed and now I am proudly driving my new Altima. The other staff was also, too, truly amazing. I came in to wrap up the sale with a terrible headache just dealing with the car buying process and the lady at the reception area offered me a snack, water, and Tylenol. The finance gentleman worked his magic and was able to get me a good monthly payment as well as warranty. He also went above to provide whatever he had to get my children to settle down. Football it was and he, or the rest of staff, never showed any frustration with my kids or myself. They even gave them snacks :) To all of you at Charles Barker, Laskin Rd, THANK YOU ! Honestly, if you are in the car buying process LET THIS BE YOUR FIRST AND LAST STOP. They truly treat you wonderfully with no pressure. Just when I started to get discouraged, they got me approved.
Very comfortable with some weight

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.
I purchased a truck from Courtesy Autos , and John made this process happen so smoothly. The atmosphere was warm and inviting which made me feel at ease. I will continue to keep you all informed during my journey with the team at Courtesy Autos.
I love this car!

I like this car a lot! A few minor things but they were covered under warranty. Such as a whistling noise coming through window. But dealership fixed!
JR was the epitome of what every customer wants a salesman to be: available when needed, knowledgeable in every aspect of the process, and dedicated to translating needs and wants with regard to the numbers of the deal into a viable solution. Although I did not purchase a vehicle from JR, I would not hesitate to recommend both him and Southern CDJR to anyone I know looking for a vehicle. Five stars all around!
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 :)
dealership went above and beyond our expectations. great experience buying a car i would recommend them all day! THANK JR STATON you are the best
Fun Mini SUV
by RisJeep from Attleboro, Massachusetts

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! ?
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Problem since warranty was up
by HFree from Akron, Ohio

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.
Had a great experience when purchasing my Grand Cherokee. David Pridgen was by far an amazing sales consultant to work with. He listened to what I was looking for in a vehicle and thoroughly explained all the nifty gadgets each vehicle had that I test drove. The manager Clayt was also great to work with! I am in love with my new vehicle and would purchase with Southern again!
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.
Everything was First Class. Great people and great store. Eddie Mac was great to work with. Got the vehicle I wanted at the price I wanted.
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.
We upgraded from a 2 door to a 4 door with many new features. Eddie Mac???s extensive knowledge of the Jeep product is a great resource. In the past we have had very good results from the service department and are happy to continue the relationship with this dealership
Nice for the price

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 cannot express how awesome my buying experience was at Southern Jeep Chesapeake!!! Kevin Klipfer(our salesman) is a true asset to the dealership and a breath of fresh air!!! Totally honest and really helped me to get a nice car with so many features. I don???t say any of this lightly, I drove a new car that I hated for two years because I didn???t want to go thru the process of car buying, Kevin won me over and Joe (sales manager) made it all come Together ! What an impressive team!!! Joe cared as much as Kevin about helping us to get into a Jeep that we all liked. I could not be more pleased and I have shared with so many people that my only regret is waiting two years to make the change. Southern Jeep Chesapeake is the real deal! Thank you for having such sincere people!
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!
Was helped by John Caddy. He was thoughtful and called me back to follow up. I found exactly what I wanted. Audi 4 convertible. So excited. I brought the car!!
A fun and practical SUV for Minnesota
by Michael from New Richland

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.
Purchased a new Pacifica and had a lot of unexpected fun at the dealer. Sharon Tull worked hard to put together the package we wanted and helped us learn the vehicle features which were quite extensive.
I love my Renegade!

I used to have an old Wrangler and missed it so much. I ended up selling it years ago when I had my son because the back seat was too tiny and I didn't feel safe putting a car seat back there. I needed a new vehicle and came across the Renegade. After test driving it, I fell in love. It definitely drives and feels like a Jeep, the inside is super roomy and comfy for such a small SUV, and the gas mileage is great. It is definitely exactly what I was looking for. It's cute, reliable, and I'm SO HAPPY to have my 4 wheel drive back for the snow!!!
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
As of now, this looks to be a shinning example!

This little JEEPLET is the car that you need because getting a pick up truck to go antique shopping is a hassle. I Have gotten as high as 37 MPG on the highway over long road trips. In the city is averaging about 21MPG if you don't floor it. The complaint people have about the transmission being slow to kick down gears i have yet to experience it. Do keep in mind if you are buying these used, two things to check for.... 1, If there is a 1.4L MULTIAIR Engine under the hood keep in mind the timing belt will go bye bye at about 150,000 and 2. Not all renegades come a standard spare tire.

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.
