I just read a test of the Jeep Renegade in the Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld. For me the piece raised more questions than it answered.

First of all, the magazine writes that the 2.0 MultiJet 4WD needs timing belt/cambelt replacement every 60,000km. Is this true? If it is, then this must be one of the shortest intervals for any modern car.

Secondly, the magazine writes that on their “Swedish cycle” test the car consumes 7,7 litres/100km. That’s a high figure for a manual transmission. Can someone here with a 2.0 Multijet Renegade chime in and give me some real life figures?

They also write that the electric park brake did not perform as intended. Has anyone here had any issues with the brake?

And finally the most worrying claim from the magazine: They write that when they removed their test decal on the rear hatch, parts of the clear coat came off! Has anybody else with a Renegade experienced any issues with the paint?

Google translate of Dutch owners manual:

For areas where there is little dust is recommended a maximum mileage of 120,000 km. Regardless of mileage the belt every 6 years to be replaced.

In dusty environments and / or use of the vehicle in difficult conditions (cold climates, in the city, long periods of idling):
maximum mileage of 60,000 km is recommended. Regardless of mileage, the belt should be replaced every 4 years.
