Last Saturday I dropped by my local Jeep dealer and test drove their red Jeep Renegade Latitude 4x2. The interior feels roomy but there is zero room in the back seat with the front seats all the way back. The transmission was AWFUL. The 9 speed transmission never seemed to find the right gear; almost the same feeling of driving a stick shift for the first time. Interior quality seemed to be really good and everything is logically placed. I would say there are way too many "Easter Eggs" on this vehicle and the spider saying "Ciao Baby" in the fuel door area is just plain silly. I'm sure Jeep will sell a ridiculous amount of Renegades but I won't be part of that statistic. I had high expectations for the Renegade but, to me, the vehicle was a letdown.
