How old is it? Isn't it under warranty?
Previously I had an F150 that had a fuel pump go a month out of warranty, then the heater core went less than a year later. I had a brand new isuzu pickup before that which had a faulty computer and it took three trips to the shop to get it replaced. The car would shut off any time I hit a bump in the road like railroad tracks. It was terribly dangerous.

Sorry you are having those issues. There are bad ones in every make/model out there, been there done that. So far not one issue with this one....nada. My only complaint is that damn small fuel tank.

i thought the same way with my renegade trailhawk. mine has been emission problems, purge valves etc. three times in shop in two years, i like my ride so i just live with the problems AND buy the extended warranty. it is only worth $18,000 on a trade, not going to give it away.
lemon law is tough, has to be one problem at least repaired three times--- laws different in each state

I'm sure that you don't really care but I'll message you anyway to tell you you could buy this piece of junk back.!
I bought a brand new vehicle so I wouldn't have issues and this is the worst decision I ever made in my life.
I bought it in 2016 brand new I have 45000 miles on it I am going to have to pay to get rid of it!?
but that is what I intend to do.
I am having to sell my house in order to get rid of this lemon of a vehicle!
I owe $15,128.
Carvanna will give me $11,000. So it will be worth it to me to pay $3,000. To get rid of it.
How do motor mounts go out in a jeep a supposedly best off road vehicle made ever? When I've never even driven It off road? One week after being out of the shop of that mess now my audio failure light is on what the hell is that!!!!
Please take this vehicle awayˇ!!!!!!!

Now the audio system failure light is on!!!
It doesn't even show it in the manual I had to look it up internet what does this mean????
Why is everything breaking down on this Jeep!
I drive it to work 15 minutes there in 15 minutes back.
Now it's not even reliable for that.
Out of warranty of course, I have 45000 miles on it. Never been off road never been mistreated. I'm going to write all over it to never by Jeep and just paraded around town!!!

Yes! The small fuel tank stinks! Its understandable given the size of the renegade, but after a 7 week road trip and over 10000 miles, I can really feel the lack of fuel space... Almost ran out of gas at least 3 times out west lol

Whaaaat ??? In all my decades on this planet, I've NEVER heard that one before !! Sell your house because your upside down on a car loan ? If anything, muscle through the issues with it until you can break even or close enough to, then get rid of it.

Hi LjminTuc,

I've been trying to send you a private message but it appears you either have chosen not to receive them or cannot receive them. Can you double check?
