They may have built 100,000, but they're not yet selling a lot around my area. My local dealer has 26 Renegades listed (maybe 10 in transit and 16 on the lot), but I still haven't seen a purchased car driving.

Originally I thought these cars would sell like hot cakes.

100,000 globally is not that big of a number. To put it in perspective, the population of where I live is 360,000..... Thats not even 1/3 of my population and this is a global number. Yes it is a milestone, but like Bwbike said, I thought myself this would be a hotter seller than what it is currently. My dealer has 18 on the lot sitting right now and they keep calling me every week wanting to know if I want to come in and to see if I'm ready to to buy. They kind of get dishearten when I tell them not until FCA learns to put sealant around windshields and to get their act together on the transmission....... until the following week

As much as I hate to break the cycle of " They aren't selling, I haven't seen one ANYWHERE!!", I know in my area they have sold 2 Trailhawks, a limited and 2 latitudes so far, in addition to mine.

I still haven't seen one on the road but that means nothing.

It's only been 2 months, of course you are bound to see more Kia Spuls and Jeep Patriots out there.

Give it some time.

100,000 since the end of last year to June of this year is amazing, especially for Jeep. Most of the sales of these vehicles up to now is in Europe , where there seems to be a lot less complaints than in the U.S we have had our Renegade for five weeks now , and so far no problems whatsoever, with build quality , or anything else.I do think we in Europe , and the U.K where I live have a better choice of engines and transmissions.I have a 1.6 Turbodiesel , with six speed manual transmission and they are a great combination, luv the car.

The Cherokee sells about 80k a year in the U.S., and annual eu sales have been about 32k combined for all jeep miles in the past.

100k would cover a pretty successful roll out in both markets.

I'm not counting U.S. Sales because 4-5k a month, plus nearly a month pause to "correct VIN numbers" is really not even a drop in the bucket to make a difference anyway. So as you can see in this chart Renegade, for its segment, is average. http://left-lane.com/european-sales-2015-q1-small-crossover-segment/

You are missing my point. Yes, it's not blowing the doors off of the competition in EU sales, but for the jeep brand it is moving a LOT. For the jeep US brand, the Cherokee was considered a success after a shaky start and moves about 80k a year. Sold to date, you can add everything up, double those numbers to account for inventory on hand and in transit, and you are still pretty far short of the 100k mark. Like 20-30k units short so, I'm still just wondering where they go. Or are they including Brazil rather than just the Melfi plant output? Perhaps that's it.

The poorly equipped Sport and Latitude models with the ugly wheels that are comically undersized have been sitting at the dealerships here. The Trailhawks flew off the lots.

Not missing the point at all. Since you brought up the U.S. Market, The Soul has raked in over twice the numbers of Renegade but beat the Nissan Juke which are both in its segment. So like it's Euro cousin, it's in the middle. You have to add in the fact its a new car so you are going to have some "ooooohhhh & ahwwwww" sales until the newness wears off in which sales will drop. Happens with nearly every new fresh design.

So going by Euro and U.S. numbers, Renegade is doing average or in the middle ground. Sales aren't sucking but they aren't setting any records nor is it anything outstanding. To me its just "motoring along". Which kind of scares me once the newness wears off or if they don't get this transmission/ 4WD system under control.

Yeah you are. My question is where's e they. Even if they have one on a boat or in a lot for every one sold, they still would be about 20-30k short depending on the may numbers for the eu, which aren't out yet.

The only reasonable answer I have is if they are counting Brazil as we'll d 100k is for the model, not the factory.

It's really irrelevant what outsold what in that math.

Other than trying to decode what you are trying to say, my point is 100k is not that much globally. That's where they are at.

How can you say they are short if you say May numbers are not out yet?

I'm confused on why you are trying inject missing Renegades on to what I was taking about. My examples of sales sites and opinion is that there is not that many of them compared to other brands and that a 100k is no big deal other than historical. You are the one that started a dialog with me by quoting me first. I don't give a crap if the numbers don't exactly line up. That was not what my original comment was about.

My point on me commenting on this thread was on the first photo the OP posted. It was Renegade underneath a banner saying 100K and the the Op thinking it was some big success story. I was just disagreeing with that opinion by providing examples. I don't give a crap if the numbers don't exactly line up. That was not what my original comment was about. Sheesh!
