Of course the trailer is only 900lbs dry. I don't know if I have just been lucky with problems appearing when I put on more miles or not. I just keep hearing of issues with the Renegade so I wanted to mention the good side.
Not sure what it's like in your neck of the woods. Here in Maine/New England, there are Renegades all over the place. On an average run to the store, I may see at least 3. Couldn't tell you how many I saw in all my running around this morning. If they were that bad, there wouldn't be this many on the road. I also work in a small independent repair shop, only thing we see them in for is oil changes and tire rotations. With todays internet availability, it's very easy for the few issues to show their faces. How often to we see people like you on a forum just to say 'hey! Loving my Renegade!! 120,000 trouble free miles!!!' It just doesn't happen. All we hear is the bad out of the millions of good.
