  1. FCA and PSA merging

    Jeep Renegade News
    I wouldn't put too much faith in models based on a GM platform. I suspect a merger like this will bring such licensing to an end. I would say that PSA brings something to the table in keeping a variety of hatch and sedans alive in europe in case they come back here, but that was kind of my...
  2. FCA and PSA merging

    Jeep Renegade News
    So it looks like a 50-50 merger with PSA is going to happen. Thoughts or opinions? I looked at Groupe PSA's offerings, and I'm not sure what they bring to the table, but that may just be their english websites being meh or their UK offerings being meh. IT seems like all their brands are 80-90%...
  3. Vibrations when idling?

    Problems/Issues
    Yeah mine has been trying to upsell me a thorttle body cleaning and acting all dire like my car will explode if I don't do it right now. Also trying to pretend it will void my warranty. They get all pissy when I ask them to show me where on the scheduled maintenance it is. Which they can't...
  4. TH vs other models

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    Maverick left off at least one key difference. The renegade comes with steel bumpers and those red tow hooks are secured to the unibody. SO it has actual recovery points that can be abused like you would for off road recovery. Non Trailhawks have aluminum bumpers and a removable tow hook...
  5. 2018 Renegade Clutch

    Problems/Issues
    Depends on how well you operate a clutch. There have been a number of worn clutches reported at 30-35k, but after an initial bout of declaring themselves very awesome drivers, they usually indicate repeated behaviors that would involve slipping the clutch a fair amount. The renegade clutch does...
  6. Just Purchased a 2016 4 Months Ago and got a $4000 Quote for Repairs

    Problems/Issues
    My set developed a clunk. My delaer fixed it as a freebie while in for other service. It has come back after a couple of years. My current list of to-dos involves checking tightness of everything. $2700 is obscene. The seat frame is ~$900. So they are charging $1800 in labor. That's a lot of...
  7. 2015 TH Battery Replacement

    Maintenance & Service
    It's getting time for me to do mine as well. Early 2015 production with no problems, but winter is coming, and 5 years has been the limit of pretty much any battery I have bought, if that. Anyone have advice on what batteries are good these days. It seems that all the brands that produced what...
  8. 2016 Renegade will not cut on/red lights blinking, etc.

    Problems/Issues
    The most common cause of "EVERYTHING IS BROKEN!!!!" rainbow colored light show without an accompanying MIL illumination is a bad or intermittent ground. A dead battery will do it to. Unfortunately, they now use a push on negative terminal, which if it is loose has no options to adjust it like...
  9. I *Should* (and Do) Need an Oil Change, But....

    Maintenance & Service
    Yes but mine appeared to have been reset to something other than "zero" by them.
  10. I *Should* (and Do) Need an Oil Change, But....

    Maintenance & Service
    From my experience they can. I usually trip the indicator at 6500-7500 miles. I was at 6k when I needed other service so I had them do the oil change along with it. They did not reset the timer and it tripped a couple of weeks later. I had them fix it. So either they can, or they gave me a...
  11. Patriot wheels on a Renegade?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes
    Everything I found when looking at wheels say that the patriot wheels are the same centerbore, offset, and bolt pattern.
  12. Rear Hatch doesn't want to stay shut

    Exterior
    If you have a fob in the vehicle, there's a simple test. Take it out. Try to close the hatch. See if it works. It seems to be the cause of the issue for a lot of people in this thread. Verify it rather than just assume it is or isn't the problem. I just have a regular key and have never had an...
  13. Motor Mount

    Engines Discussion
    Most dealerships will replace all three if they are replacing one because it makes them more money, doesn't take them a huge amount more time, and you won't come back immediately because one of the old ones was also messed up. Most people DIYng it replaced the right one because it was...
  14. Motor Mount

    Engines Discussion
    68258599AA is the rear motor mount. It is mounted to the transmission. The transmission and motor are attached to each other. 68363756AA is the driver side mount under the battery. 68363755AA is the passenger side mount under the airbox.

    I will bet you there is a breather valve for the transmission or something at 19 inches.
  16. Idle vibration in drive only

    Problems/Issues
    Well they might do it for $200 in labor. They aren't doing it for $200 in parts. I'll point you at uniteams quality post on the subject with part numbers and pictures. Its about $300 for the two top mounts. https://www.jeeprenegadeforum.com/forum/888361-post44.html
  17. Is it normal to replace brakes and rotors at 21,000 miles

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes
    Yeah, I kind of got distracted and forgot to post this as part of my explanation. More weight in wheels and tires means more wear for the same amount of braking.
  18. Is it normal to replace brakes and rotors at 21,000 miles

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes
    21,000 is earlier than I would expect for a full replace, but it's just a bit earlier than I would expect for pads depending on use. My commute is a LOT of shuffling along with an average speed of about 17mph. I got about 22,000 miles out of my pads. I'm nearing round two, and the rotors will...
  19. Angry look

    Exterior
    I think the batman mask analogy is apt. I too will say it's not for me. It also appears to need the carbon fiber hood. I'm guessing this is a fair amount of work and cash to get a different face to the renegade, so if you don't love it, you probably should pass on it.
