Renegade 1.4 Longitude - 2015 - Help please


I am in the process of looking to buy a ‘15 jeep renegade 1.4 longitude. I have read some absolute horror stories about renegades from this year. In particular serious electrical faults and other issues. I’m still really drawn to it but don’t know if it’s a risk. I plan on keeping this car for a good 10 years and want to be sure about it’s reliability. Would anyone be able to help either confirm or relieve my concerns!

Thanks so much for any advice

Look for cars with a Carfax you can look into. Electrical issues will usually result in visits to the dealership while in-warranty, so if you can find a one-owner car without many service visits for anything other than scheduled maintenance, you should theoretically be in good shape. I just bought a preowned 2017 latitude, so I feel some of that trepidation about electronics issues, but my 2016 Sport 1.4t I traded in was a champ, so maybe the issues are magnified a little too much by unhappy internet peoples.
