Add me into the burnt out clutch category. My 2016 Jeep Renegade with 15004 miles has been towed to the dealer. I have driven manual transmissions for years and have only replaced one clutch at 84,000 miles. Waiting to hear back from the dealer. I bought the Jeep slightly over a year ago.

To me, the flaw is that first gear is still geared too high in the Renegade. I've found that ever since I picked it up. With six speeds, it would be really nice to get a nice low first gear.

That would help. Being able to get the clutch engaged engaged instead of slipping it is a must.
I have to admit my '17 Latitude is an auto (due only to my 16 year old learning to drive) (I'm a die-hard manual fan), but in my 40 years of driving sticks, I can't imagine the 1.4L at low rpm, especially off boost, would have a real good tq/lb ratio on the Renegade. Combine that with a low ratio (ratio, not speed) 1st gear could make off roading or towing a heavy trailer at low speed might make it difficult to keep the clutch happy.

Hopefully the problems are just isolated, and not a wide spread issue. (Looking at a new 2.4/6-speed Compass for the wife...)

Clutch dead at 15004 miles

Mine is a 1.4L. Quote from the dealer is $3800 to fix. I am less than a month out from the 12 month/12000 mile warranty.

Super disappointed and frustrated. Called Chrysler Customer Service and they said it was under warranty. The Jeep dealer where they referred me said no. And no wiggle room. Now looking for a shop to repair it and put in a better quality clutch. Ideas?

Dealer did my 2016 4x4 Latitude clutch for $2400, parts & labor. Can give you their contact info for a quote if you want.

I'm guessing the gearbox in the same? (C635)

There should be uprated clutches available sold for the Alfas.

Well oh well! I'm joining the conversation as well to add to what a piece of crap Jeep has fed us. My clutch went out 38,000 miles and just about a month after my last payment to Jeep. I went on a road trip and it left me stranded on the road at 600 miles from home. Called Jeep and of course they said it was out of warranty wanted some sort of explanation as to why a clutch would go out with such little mileage and there answer was that I didn't know how to drive it. Me that learned how to drive in a stick shift in a country that basically only stick shifts are used and that is all mountains and winding roads up and down hills and narrow streets, yet, after 30+ years of driving pretty much only sticks they are telling me that it was me that doesn't know how to drive. You've got to be ****kidding me! I have had cars for over 100,000 miles that have never needed a clutch replaced but this being my first and LAST Jeep is saying otherwise. Its a Lemon they are building and selling pieces of **** cars and not standing behind their brand. Seriously, the sad thing about it is that what is made well these days, right? Pretty much everything is disposable even something you spent close to $34K on. Insane. That throw away mentality can't continue if we want the planet to continue yet, no one is making manufacturers responsible for the quality of their goods.
