So I took delivery of my Renegade this Sunday, and I absolutely love it. I purchased the Alpine White with Black Leather Interior Limited fully loaded. It's a little Tank. It's very well grounded and in the City it's a perfect little jeep for parking. I haven't taken it anywhere crazy to test out its full capabilities. I love the bucket seats they are personally much better than the ones that were in my Cherokee. The GPS is efficient and the infotainment/entertainment set up in good. The 9Alpine speakers are good and gave decent range. The push to start everything feels well built. I've seen some post about damage and cheap build and honestly I haven't had any of those issues/concerns granted it's been about a week. One of my gripes is the signaling. The shifting feels very blah literally my own complaint. Anyone else have a renegade in a major city?

I've been driving it around LA all week and it's working great so far. I'm still adjusting to the height of the TH, since I'm coming from a VW GTI, but I really love the Jeep and it performs well around town. I'm looking forward to getting it off road - we were supposed to this weekend but my wife now has to work saturday so it will have to wait till next weekend. I'm surprised at how much I've fallen for this thing...

My Trailhawk has been flawless so far after 400+ miles. I won't likely take it offroad (just bought it over the other trims for the looks), but on highway and in city traffic it is very nice. And my bicycle and accessories fits inside nicely.

Once you get used to the TH and go back to a GTI, you'll feel like you're sitting on the ground... like in a F1 car. I feel that way every time I switch from my Element (daily) to my '01 M Roadster. It's a mind bending trip.

A trip to the ghost town of Bodie would be interesting too.

What's. Up with the signaling? I read something about a feature for lane changes - is y that the issue?
It's all good now. It was a little stiff so I was shifting lanes without signaling and got pulled over a few times but we're good now. I'm only at 180 miles so far and I'm happy. I put it to the biggest test today I was in the turnpike and really was trying to push it. I'm happy I hope everyone who has picked up one is happy. My little family loves it. ** I however need to figure out how to train my 4year old to not try and ruin the leather seats.
