I really don't understand Renegade owners giving a sh*t about wrangler owners might have to say about the Renegade. I live in a major city so I've never experienced "wrangler hate" but I really don't get it.
Does anyone know, do Cherokee or Compass owners have forums where they talk about Wrangler owners hating on them?
How about other car companies like Ford or something, do they have a top of the line model and anything else made by ford gets dissed?
Might just be a Jeep thing though since there are so few models.
Both my Dad and brother in law have had Wranglers for a long long time. When we were first looking to buy a new car, I made many considerations and after a lot of research we bought the Renegade. It really makes no sense for my girl and I to drive a Wrangler at all right now. 95 % city driving. We both share the 1 vehicle.
That being said, the plan was and is to stick with the Renegade for 5 years, and then the two of us will get our own cars, mine will be a Wrangler. Why? Because the wrangler is an awesome vehicle. So many mods available for travel and practicality (I'm not a macho style huge wheels guy) I like practicality and adventure and I know that the Wrangler, given proper care, will outlast a Renegade.
As of right now I love love love the Renegade! It's the best vehicle I've ever owned. I've had it for 5 months now and every time I get in it I'm excited as hell to drive!
In August 2018 my girl and I will be driving from Toronto to the Black Hills, SD, down through Moab and Monument Valley, over to Santa Fe and El Paso, through San Antonio and New Orleans, up to Memphis and through Nashville and then home. 1 month trip with Renegade! Roof Top Tent! Gonna be so great.
I'm a photographer, I have a lot of planning to do for each stop and stops along the way. When we do the trip, I may start a thread here on the forum and update as the trip progresses.
Anyways, cheers guys
