I guess. For me though being retired and on my own this was how I wanted to go. It works for around town and is comfortable but I think a lot of people don't realize how capable it really is. I do see quite a few in my area where those are the type of people driving around. I think they are using it as a Subaru alternative. There are even a lot who have the 2 wheel drive model just for the looks. Like I said though I do not baby it out in the wild and it has not let me down.

Interesting thread. I've had my Renegade for three years now. It's a 2016, had 17 miles on it, everything black, badges, Bigfoot on the rear window, the big wheels, etc. (don't remember the actual model name). I call it my Johnny Cash Jeep. Has just over 16000 miles in just over three years. Pretty light driving. Never taken it off-road, aside from having to go up on a curb to go around debris in the road after a bad thunderstorm...lol....Anyway, I imagine it would do pretty well off road, but I enjoy it as a sweet-running SUV. Only issue I've had is that once-in-a-while the speed control won't set the speed, but once the car is turned-off and started again it will work. So, I've learned to live with that. Have no idea what they'd do to fix it. Not a constant problem.... All things said-and-done, it's a really good car. Fantastic in snow. We had a horrible winter. Lots and lots of snow, and freezing cold temps, but nothing stopped this car. I could go anywhere I needed. When family couldn't get to the store or the doctor's, I was there.............I like this car a lot..oh, and 27.2 mpg in town and we got about 30 with Interstate travel on last year's vacation. Yes, I'd buy another one and I might in a couple years or so.

We've had ours close to 2 years now. We live at the end of an UNMAINTAINED county gravel road and ours is off-road on the farm and at canoe put-ins all the time. ZERO problems. Nothing but oil changes and tire rotations, although, we're going to be tire shopping before winter. I've gotten to where I take it instead of my truck to the river most of the time. Love it!
