Three weeks today and about 11oo miles on my Orange Renegade L attitude. We love it. Mileage on the highway is over 30 mpg. Music is great and bluetooth functions are all good. Lots of room in the back. I had the drivers and passenger windows tinted to match the back windows and added a mylar "eybrow" across the front windshield. Also ordered OEM floor mats for front and back plus the cargo area. Just ordered front seat covers as the light colored seats will soil quickly. Overall we are completly pleased with our Renegade

My Latitude has 1,100 miles on it and I am really enjoying the vehicle thus far. I have FWD model and have never gotten less than 27 mpg with 65/35 city/hwy driving.

I have the nine speaker system and it sounds great. iPhone was easily synced to radio.

Bluetooth works like a charm with no issues hearing for myself or party I am talking to.

1100ish miles on my Trailhawk so far and trouble-free. I'll have owned it for 1 month tomorrow.

I ordered my all weather mats and cargo area mat from the local dealer, which was awesome because they came in the very next day due to some kind of thing the dealers have with Chrysler's distribution network.

I'm anxiously awaiting what the hitch package will be and how much, because it's next along with roof racks, and then the tire conundrum... I'm on the fence about a bug visor, because I hate how they look but I understand their purpose.

But worried about the small number of posts on this thread...
I wouldn't worry.
1-Jeep only sold about 4500 Renegades in the last few months (in the US alone I believe),
2-the forum only has 1500+ members and not all of them post.
3-from what I've seen, on most car enthusiast discussion forums, topics that deal with issues tend to overshadow the positive ones.

Comparing side by side the number of posts dealing with issues is tiny compared to the amount of positive posts spread throughout the forum. I'm sure if one were to combine all the positive ones along with the Introductory ones (which usually are positive also) this thread would be really long.

Keep the (positive) posts coming I really like reading them. :)

2200 problem free miles on mine so far! A bit embarrassed at the miles I've racked up so far in less than a month! :eek:

Drives great, been averaging about 25 mpg. Took a fishing trip down to Corpus Christi about 2 weekends ago and then drove up to Austin this past weekend to the iheartradio Country Festival. Even took TX famed 85 mph TX-130 hwy from Kyle to Round Rock and revs stayed low... got up to about 95 mph without hassle or fuss. Just smooth power and surprisingly quiet.

I came from a Turbo 5 cylinder Volvo with a 5 speed auto... That car had the smoothest shifts I've ever experienced... not comparing it to the Renegade but I've gotten used to the sporty "jerk" from 1st to 2nd... kinda depends on how heavy your foot is haha.

One minor thing that came up that solved itself was the automatic lights... my headlamps stayed on a full day even in direct sunlight. Realized that dirt was covering the sensor on the windshield. One drive through car wash later and problem solved. Also messed with the light sensitivity and it helped.

I saw your beautiful blue Renegade with the bike on the roof on instagram. Almost made me regret ordering a white one! ;)
Thanks A LOT!!! I'm really happy with it! And I admit I love the way it looks with the bike on the roof vs hitch/hatch mounted. :D

So that windshield still controls the headlights even if you set the Daytime Running Lights setting to off in the UConnect / Light setting display console? Or was the Daylights Running Lights setting on already?

It was most likely this one.

I will say that despite my few issues at the beginning, I haven't had any others. I fixed the washer fluid pump myself with just a bead of black RTV, took about 20 minutes to remove, seal and re-install (not counting set time for the sealant). The intermittent LED courtesy light problem I was having is no more. I didn't do a thing, but now they work as they should. Also, I only experienced 2 of the very hesitant starts (cranking, cranking, cranking, struggled to start). That said, I'm about to take a 300 mile round trip for work, all highway mileage. We'll see if anything else crops up but I doubt it. Love this little Jeep :D!!
