Just rolled over 275,000 miles on my 2015 TH. The oem brakes and rotors were changed at 260,000 miles. Front pads were worn down on inside pad, rears were still 3/4 left. I have had dealer oil changes when the change oil light goes off. Changed sparkplugs at 100,000 interval. Struts, balljoints and tie rods still oem. Antifreeze still oem, it gets tested by dealer at every oil change. Comes back good. Serpentine belt was changed at 240,000 miles was still in good shape. I got 150,000 miles out of the last set of BF Goodrich KO2 tires.
Overall very pleased with my Jeep. Still a pleasure to drive.

Man, that's great service from your little Jeep.

Those must also be some easy miles. My Jeep dealer had already installed new pads on mine as it is a CPO truck (I assume...the pads proudly show the Mopar label, which I think only the service part has Vs a production part). So the fronts must have been under 50% life at 26k miles. I had them clean-up the front rotors (fine cut on lathe) as they had some lot rot from sitting. Whatever it has, the brakes are fantastic in my opinion.

Mostly thruway miles. I have a daily 260 mile round trip to work. So the miles add up fast.

260 miles! Wow! That must be 5 hours of commute time per day. I'd move closer to work.
But good job taking care of your Renegade. (y)

An update, currently at 298,000 miles. The a/c compressor was replaced last week under warranty. I guess it finally just got tired. Other than that looking forward to the 300,000 mile mark.

That is a lot of miles. Congrats, but 150,000 out of tires, they had to be bald. Most people only get about 40-60,000.

Great job.

Corrr!!! Thats a magnificent mileage out of your tyres and to be congratulated upon after 150K miles. (y)(y)(y)

In the UK our legal limit is 1.6mm or 1/16" (2/32") to describe it better in relation to 5/32 ;)

You have truly excelled yourself by almost 7 times the national average of 20K miles across the Pond, 40k if it's a rear tyre :oops:

UK average miles per tyre

Where I live in the mountains, I would be lucky to see 40k on a set of tires.
… my driving style might contribute to some of the tire wear. :rolleyes:

We bought our 2017 1.4L with a manual tranny after owning a number of Jeep JK's and JKU's. The Renegade has proven to be much more reliable and trouble free. Now knowing these engines can go 275K miles is a bonus. I had some initial concerns about a Fiat motor but no longer. With 38 mpg on a regular basis, one could not ask for more. Just sorry they don't offer the manual anymore.
