What Owners Say

"fun to drive"

Anonymous, MO (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"This vehicle really hugs the road, has great acceleration, and is fun to drive."

SARAH S., NY (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"The transmission is a bit jerky, and sometimes the car seems to lurch at slow speeds"

ELIZABETH B., CA (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"There is substantial hesitation when I accelerate."

Anonymous, NJ (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Vehicle has lost pep. Bogs down when accelerator pushed hard. Sometimes anti sked icon flashes when this happens. If I need to accelerate quickly and rapidly into traffic I can no longer confidently expect the vehicle to do that. If I press hard on the accelerator while making a turn into traffic the car just bogs down with no acceleration. I fear it could cause an accident. Dealer has not been able to correct."

Anonymous, OH (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Handles nicely. Love how I can zip through traffic"

Anonymous, WI (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"There is a feeling of full control of the ride and road."

Allan F., ON (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"2015 Jeep Renegade drives and handles great, my only issue is with the power/acceleration. Jeep needs to offer the current 2.4L engine as a Turbo engine. The current 2.4L offers more hp than any in its class (180), but I need more power, the Jeep is too slow on the quarter mile."

Karen W., MA (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Transmission shifts erratically and jerky. Jarring ride. Lots of road noise."

Jereb S., CA (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Great acceleration and all around fun to drive"

Anonymous, MD (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Unpowered. Transmission does no downshift soon enough. Manual downshift is generally not viable."

Anonymous, CO (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"short wheelbase makes it easy to control in town, the awd/4wd system is simple and easy to use."

Anonymous, UT (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"The acceleration has been really lagging after 30000 miles"

Anonymous, IA (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Underpowered, Given its size and small engine the 9 speed transmission is waisted."

Anonymous, NJ (2015 Jeep Renegade)

"Very poor acceleration when passing"

Bryce H., KS (2015 Jeep Renegade)
