I forgot it has the 9 speed transmission, it was getting really sluggish so last week I brought it in for service and they did a software update and know it's fine.

Great Feedback, Thanks !
Now just need to convince the Bride. She can't drive a stick, but has a lovely mini van to get groceries in.
I have compared and researched the Patriot, Compass, and a few other products, and have started to lean towards the Renegade.

Bought my Renegade back in July and this is the first vehicle I'm going to keep. I traded in my 2015 Subaru WRX for it and I have no regrets(other than when I pass another car)! The past couple of weeks we have had some pretty good "lake effect" snow storms and the Renegade has been fantastic! The one night, coming home after work, there was around a foot to a foot and a half of snow in the road and she handled it just fine. I have the "Dawn Of Justice" edition Renegade with Nokian Nordman 5 SUV snow tires on her.

I'm in West Michigan, Muskegon Area, plenty of snow here to test in, my 2015 Renegade with the 2.4 FWD handles it just fine, I do have snow tires on it though. I test drove a 1.4 manual 4x4 last spring in the snow, it handle it great, just could not do the 6spd ultimately because of the wife and kids needing to also be able to drive it, so I sacrificed the 4x4 and and got the Auto and bigger engine, No regrets.

Beginning to be convinced the Rennie is built to be a Snow Champion. 4x4 Latitude automatic owner speaking.

Hi, I have the same setup... 2015 Latitude, 4x4, 1.4, 6-speed.
I've had it since Feb 2016, picked it up from Roseville CJDR on Gratiot....very easy to work with.
I live right by you in Sterling Heights, have had no issues with the snow.
I've had 0 problems with it so far and I'm sitting about 11,000 miles.

The only complaint I have is the stock tires it came with, can't justify changing them until they are worn. Only had to put it in snow mode to get through an unplowed road.

Well, you gotta have tires! These days, there's so many choices and options. Clear fact is this: The factory only has one decided choice for the consumer. The rest is up to us if we pursue to purchase non-stocks.

A good set of snow tires will get you through more than all-seasons and only enhances the four-wheel/all-wheel drive systems that many vehicles have today.
