  1. Looking for Light trails in Seattle, WA

    Off-Road Discussion
    I’m sure it’s not a good idea to go even Through the easiest parts during these next few months. What are some other trails besides the WABDR?
  2. Looking for Light trails in Seattle, WA

    Off-Road Discussion
    Hello, I’m looking for some light off roading here in the Seattle area. I’ve read about the discovery route and it seemed a bit much for my rig. Could someone point me to some light trails they’ve had a successful pass with little to no problems without a lift or A/T tires. i have the...
  3. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    I disabled hill assist and that changed the clunking a lot. I live in Seattle and the roads here are hagard and hilly. I doubt that fixed my problem but it’s still too early to tell with such low mileage. Thanks for your input.
  4. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    Went for a drive a bit ago going back and forth from 60-75 mph. I was at 2k rpms and it wouldn’t shift out of 7th gear so I put it into manual mode and shifted between 7-9th gear periodically. When I got off of the freeway, it was shifting smoother in auto mode but could’ve been a placebo...
  5. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    I thought It’d be ok if I did take some long trips. Seems like your rig is doing just fine. That’s what I’m about to go do, just drive it.
  6. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    My rigs still in it’s break in period. I’ve read that I’m not supposed to go on long trips. keeping the rpms at a contant speed could damage the motor in the long run, like the rings not seating correctly. This is my first new car.
  7. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    My gas mileage goes up gradually and this is only at the 500 mile mark. I’m sure it’ll get better over time. I’ve read about the trans a lot and I thought they would’ve too. 3rd gear feels like I’m driving a manual transmission before it shifts and slowing down I always hear/feel clunks all...
  8. 500 mile check in!

    Problems/Issues
    Just landed on 500 miles on my 2020 and no issues. Getting 23.0 mpg. I love it but still getting used to this weirdly loud, clunky and confused 9 speed transmission

    Is the upland edition not a special edition?
  11. Position of a roof basket

    What Did You Do To Your Jeep Renegade Today?
    So I have a 2020 renegade upland and I installed some crossbars and roof basket for future, light off-road endeavors. I have a question, having your roof top basket placed further back or to the front differ in any way? Does it hurt gas mileage or the way the vehicle drives etc.

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    What about the Special éditions like the upland model, do they have the steel bumper or the aluminum?
  13. TH vs other models

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    I’m not really into heavy duty off roading and that’s why I got the renegade, just to have some safety in the snow i.e. 4x4, light trails and have a higher ground clearance than my old garage can of a car, Nissan Versa. I don’t care if the renegade is looked at as a joke but I’ve seen some vids...
  14. TH vs other models

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    Makes sense. I tried finding info about your statement regarding the vehicle starting in 4wd but couldn’t find anything. If that’s interesting to know cuz I feel like it does most of the time from a dead stop
  15. TH vs other models

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    Thank you for the clarification. This is my first awd capable vehicle and the reason I ask is I’m trying to get into going on moderate trails and such.
  16. TH vs other models

    Hill decent keeps the engine in higher rpms going down hill, which is engine breaking? My 2020 upland edition does that on all hills.
  17. TH vs other models

    Jeep Renegade General Discussion
    I had a thought but no in depth research to amplify my theory. Since the TH has rock mode which locks it into first gear, why can’t less equipped models that are automatics with manual mode or a manual just leave it in first gear while on trails? What’s the difference?

    Ok as yea, I have the 2.4L. It’s pretty cold up here in Seattle around this time and I drive 144 miles a week so it’ll be 1,728ish miles by 3 months. The take off from a stop at a moderate speed with this 9 speed trans is something to get used to. So with my Upland edition, I pretty much get...

    Welcome as well and thank you for your thoroughly explaining your answer to me. I’m meticulous when it comes to car care of my wife’s Subaru and my renegade. I was reading that other owners of new renegades changed their oil around 150 miles cause the factory oil has some additive to it for...

    Ok. Most cars I’ve owned idled around 500-600 rpms while in gear. And what’s a good time to actually get an oil change when breaking in a new motor? Should I wait till the 5k miles or do it earlier?
