Dealer said the Rene that we drove is still available. Wife prefers it over the Subaru.What's the latest, OBXMan? This thread was initiated by you. I would only hope you finish it. Tah!
Not just the AC system. We had concerns about the quality, and this spooked us.Excellent, OBXMan! Progress. Now, if your Wife prefers the Renegade over the Subaru, the momentum edge may just have shifted. And, all this over the vehicle's air conditioning system.
I really want one of these too. But the lack of power with the Tigershark and the tepid A/C are just "no go" issues. I test drove 2 different trailhawks - 2 different dealers two different states. Lack of power was the same. And the A/C performance was the same.
With regard to A/C, it can be a very subjective thing especially when you're getting cool to cold air. But just how cold is the subjective part. So I've been taking the subjective out of it and bought a HVAC register thermometer. I now compare everything to my 2013 VW Passat. It blows 40 degree air when its 102 outside. (Max a/c - recirc on) It will freeze your a$$ off. So test driving the Renegades, 100 outside, center register never gave anything colder than 56 degrees. Compared to a Honda CRV (47 degrees) and a Toyota Rav4 (44 degrees). I am thinking something is just not right with the Renegade's A/C. Those differences are huge on a hot day.
Could you take it to a different/better dealership?that my new Renegade has been in the shop for a so far unfixable A/C issue. It has a little over 100 miles on it. They haven't contacted me in over 10 days. Anyone know if I can get my money back or ? I live in California. Thanks.
For the 2 i test drove - yes it is the ac. I didn't mention I tested the side vent because it was warmer by a couple degrees. The center register was coolest on both of these.Its not the ac, its the engineering of the center vents. They don't do the bulk of the work, the other vents do. Which is definitely atypical.
Panzerkampfwagen-leave him be. Sometimes it takes more than a minute to decide on a $20,000 ish purchase. I am referring to posts 16,23,26,42,50,54, and 57 within this thread.Or perhaps OBXMan can reply to us all and finish this discussion? Getting real, real old now.
