I have a 2017 Altitude with 9000 miles and it has been great. That sounds like a great deal for a TH.

2019 Longtitude (UK) £25K on the road or 2018 version £15K brand new if you look about, they can't give them away.

Thanks for the heads up regarding prices. These local dealers are overcharging for the latitude

No problem! I do wonder why the TH is basically being given away. I mean, a $30k vehicle for $22k?? Of course, I’ve been looking at models without a lot of the ‘extras.’ The only thing I really want is the cold weather group. Popular options group would be nice but not a must have.

I’m seeing ‘18 Latitudes at similar prices though, also without a lot of extras

Are they petrol or diesel?

Previously: 2017, 1.4 petrol, 6 speed auto, FWD, Limited, Omaha Orange ...

Now gone electric.

I've only looked at diesel tbh. Loads going for around 15-16k at the end of last year.

Iím glad to hear your Ď15 has the bugs worked out - even the Jeep dealer admitted Ď15 was a bad year when I asked about the transmission. The 9 speed sure has had some growing pains. I read the Ď19 has been retooled but who knows if thatís good or bad.

I am an actual 2018 Renegade owner -- read my posts on the Service thread about a spontaneous fire and issues with Hill Assist/ECS now. My Jeep has only been drivable for 4 days since 11/9/18 -- been in and out of the dealership for repair 4 times. Stay away from Renegades!

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
Stay away from YOUR Renegade would be more accurate.

Yes -- I think I have a not yet 1-year old piece of crap!
