I believe the drive-train is covered under a 5-year/60,000 mile warranty... If you are hopefully under warranty, I would highly advise you to find the dealership in your area with the best service center and start taking it in... I brought mine in at 34,500 miles and they finally found (admitted) all sorts of transmission issues and replaced the transmission without any hesitation.

If your Renegade is a 2015 the powertrain warranty is 5 years/100,000 miles. Changed in 2016.

I am having these same exact automatic shifting issues on my 2016 Renegade. What can I do to rectify this problem? And It's not the ONLY problem my car has either. The instrument cluster has had electrical problems and my radio display has had "needs service" messages pop up.

Trade it in. Lot's of these trans electronic issues were never been fixed. Sorry, but why be a victim when it's proven one after another that it's a losing battle. Remember, Italians are good in wine and food... building renegade is only their day job.

Hello FOR1TOO,

Although we cannot offer any technical advice, if you decide you want to have the dealer inspect your Renegade, let us know. Our team is available via private message and would be happy to help with this process.

2016 fwd Renegade

Hopefully I am not resurrecting a thread here but:

Just bought a 2016 FWD Renegade Latitude about 2 months ago. Having the same issues described here. Transmission being in higher gears then needs to be, Long time in between shifting and the MOST ANNOYING problem: Shifting from Reverse to Drive.

I have taken it to the dealership and they did an "adaptability" reset and covered the service by the 60k warranty. The speed at which it shifts seems to have gotten better but no change in the shifting from Reverse. The car even died upon shifting to drive before I finally brought it in. They said that since there was no trouble codes that they couldn't figure out what was wrong.

Wishing I would have looked into this forum before buying now and would have looked for a manual instead or a different vehicle.

Any words of advice?

Welcome I purchased a new 2017 in May, it took at 1500 miles but it adapted to my driving and I haven’t had any problems. I don’t understand the shifting into reverse issue you are having. There are quite a few Renegades out there and you are just seeing some with the issue here.

I bought a 2017 Jeep Renegade Latitude and I am having transmission issues, bucking and jumping. Wouldn't even move in Reverse the other morning when I needed to leave for work. It was like it was in neutral. Then I put in drive to move up a foot or two then it went into Reverse.... Then when I got on the road and put it in drive I couldn't get it to go over 25 miles per hour. It was bucking and jumping, jerking all over the place, check engine light came on, tire pressure came on, even though nothing was wrong with my tires. It wouldn't shift out of first gear and was running about 2500 RPM's at 20-25 MPH. I have 13,000 miles on my NEW JEEP RENEGADE LATITUDE!!!!! It should not be having any issues since it is a brand new vehicle. I too bought my Jeep in May...So I'd say it is just a matter of time and you will have the same issues. Do some research, this isn't the only place to find out about all the Renegade Tranny issues people are having let alone the other issues not mentioned in this thread. Wish you the best of luck with yours and I will be trying to get mine dealt with. Personally this is my First Jeep I've ever owned, I've only ever bought GM products and from here on out I will ONLY buy GM. JEEP is an absolute JOKE!!!

I am having very similar issues to all of you. 2015 Jeep Renegade jerking very hard between the first few gears. As I write this it is back at the Chrysler dealership and they have once again called and stated that "they cant find any issue" and that "the car is driving just fine" which is insane because it literally does it EVERY SINGLE TIME and not just a little, I'm talking about throwing you forward and coming to almost a dead stop when you pull out. I just bought this vehicle like last month and have nothing but issues. Also the A/C doesn't work which I didn't think to check since I bought it mid winter in Pennsylvania. Today they call and said they can fix it but it might not be covered under the warranty that they sold to me under the pitch "this warranty literally covers everything except normal wear". Best part is they said "well if its not covered we can maybe split the over $400 cost with you? So i'm literally paying out the ass for a vehicle I hate to drive because of the jerking, my wife is afraid to drive because she has almost been rear-ended multiple times (she works a lot farther away than me so the drive is in town) and they are really going to tell me nothing is wrong and try to charge me for a broken A/C. Im sorry I feel like when you pay over $16,000 dollars for a used vehicle it should be expected to have air conditioning. Now my option is to go to the dealership and drive with a mechanic to show them what is blatantly obvious, which means taking a fouth day off work since ive bought this vehicle to try to get some help. This is my first and last Jeep ever at this point.
