Thinking of buying this used Renegade TH - have concerns
That is the renegade I’m thinking of buying. I’ve done my research. I know of the oil consumption problems and the 4x4 system failures and warnings. I know it’s basically a fiat 500x. And I know Chrysler is known for reliability these days. Certainly much less is compared to Toyota and Honda.
BUT - I’m wondering how I can inspect this renegade when I test drive it for these issues? I’ve read enough reports now to wonder if most Renegade owners are giving up their vehicles? It’s hard to tell how reliable these cars actually are, and I’d like to hear more from you all.
What do you guys think of purchasing a used Renegade? It will be my only vehicle and I’ll be taking it up mountain trials in western Montana and else where a few times a month. I don’t have a daily commute. And there will be some days I won’t drive at all since I work from home a lot.
It’s this renegade or a new Subaru Crosstrek or Outback.
What do you guys think? I’m partial to the Renegade, but I’m not sold yet.
