Would you buy it again?

Whats up everyone! hopefully this isn't a long post lol
So lately I've been thinking of getting a renegade, I currently have a 370z and honestly I hate it. I bought it at 19, and Its a great car no doubt but as I get older (now 25) Ive grown a passion for long road trips, camping, photography, Im also trying to become a firefighter and will eventually have to carry my boots and some gear. I think overall something thats a bit more practical and although the trunk space isn't great its better than mine. I also don't have kids, just my gf so I took an interest in the little jeep because I don't need a rubicon. Just something to save me some gas while I get on some trails to camp out, fish, daily driver and groceries.

I was thinking of the 4x4 limited? MAYBE the trailhawk but i suppose id have to get a killer deal for that one. I'm hoping to get 17k for my car.

If you had to do it over, would you buy yours again? or different trim?
just wondering how you guys would recommend it for me, will be test driving one today. thank you!

It depends on what you do or what your planning to do with the vehicle. Most find the transmission of the Renegade quirky so test drive it a few times before you decide on the Renegade, its not fast off the line and seems to hunt for the right gear at times. Its not a wrangler so any trail more then moderate may get you in trouble. Most say there is not enough room to pack for camping trips and the like. Not sure what all they are taking but there have been complaints about that. There is wind noise from the front windows due to the square shape of the thing so make sure you can live with it. I have had my Trailhawk for over a year and really like it. If I had to do over I would still buy a Renegade Trailhawk the only option I would have gotten a second time would be the tow package. But I can add that later if needed.

Yes, I'd still get one and I'd still get my trim (Latitude 1.4, 6 speed, 4x4) though I would probably go for the nicer radio.
I have the Uconnect 5.0 which is fine for what it is, kind of leaves me wanting more.

I appreciate all the responses, again, I'm so used to my 370z that just about anything has more cargo space than that thing haha. Its just so impractical i can't deal with it as a daily driver anymore. As to what id use it for, honestly 90% city/freeway driving.. 1-3 real long road trips/camping trips through the year with some fishing in-between on some moderate trails.

I would do it exactly the same all over again.

For $19k, I expected a sh!tbox and instead got a blessing. Part attitude/part luck.

Definitely yes, but would probably go with a Trailhawk.
