Bought a new Renegade Trailhawk this weekend. My first 4x4, this is not my CRV. Traded my 2 yr old 2014 CRV in for the TH. The CRV (my 4th) i was just bored with it. So I gave up dependability for a Jeep. The moment I saw the new Rendgade I knew it was only a matter of time before i changed horses. The cool factor is off the chart. My first drive into work ave 31 mpg. The biggest drawback with the design of this car is the lack of space inside to stuff things. It needs some pockets, like for change in the front. The back could easily have had some indents with netting to stick little stuff. Not as well thought out as the Honda. But I knew what I was getting so I will somehow adapt. Jeep really missed an opportunity for basic things we have all come to expect that would have been so easy. The ride is stiff but i like it as I don't have a glass bottom. Never been off road but who knows. The car it turning heads when i go by. I did buy the extended warranty through another dealer on-line as it was cheaper. And because it is a Chrysler/Fiat and not a Honda.

Its sad that you bought the extended warranty. They make worse quality vehicles which compels you to buy the extended warranty. That is messed up. Incentives them to not care about quality as much.

Happy to have you though.

Welcome aboard. I feel the same way about the CRV. While extremely dependable, it is rather boring. We have 7602 trouble free miles on our Renny thus far.

That is absolutely false. I paid $2500 for a lifetime service contract. If I need a new transmission, major engine repair or even some of the AC components they lose. I'm quite sure that building an inferior vehicle is not FCA's intent.
I have bought extended service contracts on my last 2 vehicles, Escape & Tucson and used over $2k worth. It's a great peace of mind. The fact that FCA offers Maxcare is unique and worth it if you like to keep your vehicles.

Clairvoyant, I am interested in your opinion on something. I've been interested in a Renegade - and really want one - but after two Trailhawk test drives, I have concluded that the abyssmal lack of power is a deal breaker for me. Now I am looking at the CRV. Since you owned one - how would you describe the difference in power?
