Hope they will resolve this. Was just about to factory order then I found out the issue that is now plaguing the renegade. Want the vehicle but don't want one with serious issues.
Sounds like we're better off waiting till late 2015 when our chances of a problem-less renegade will be available and we'll even get a chance to get a cheaper renegade too.Hope they will resolve this.

Can vouch for the fact that the Cherokee's transmission still has issues. My mother-in-law has put nearly 30K miles on hers now and it still shifts low gears in an obnoxious and irritating manner. It's simply not fun to drive. I've never driven a V-6 with such poor acceleration. I feel like my CR-V is nearly as quick off the line. Certainly smoother by a long shot.I wonder how long until they figure out how to tune the 9speed to work properly. Are the Cherokee guys still having major issues or have most of them been resolved?
Then again, I wonder how long they will use the 9speed before they decide to either go with something older and proven, or engineer something different.
Yes, All Renegades, pot luck, your experience may vary...is this a problem with all Renegates (currently on the lot for sale) or only the new ones that are made just recently?
From what I've read, seems like it maybe the ZF 9-speed transmission hardware, and they are trying to cure its ills with software.So is it a software issue or a hardware problem?
The zf 9 speed has its quirks, smoothing over them takes effort. Whether you can do so and please the mass market remains to be seen. IMO fca didn't do enough development based on the issues in the tsb. When one of the errors is that sensors are giving improbable results, someone screwed up something in code or sensor selection.From what I've read, seems like it maybe the ZF 9-speed transmission hardware, and they are trying to cure its ills with software.
You'll get 31 mpg driving carefully and at only 55 mph. The extra 15 mph costs you 3 mpg.I bought a Trailhawk April 4th and I'm very happy with it. I almost have 2000 miles in it and the 9 speed transmission works perfect, my only concern is that even if you're going 65 miles per hour, A/C off, flat road (highway), driving alone with no extra baggage, you will not get the 31 mpg FCA promised, you will get at the most 28, and that's driving 300 miles non stop at 65 mph, I feel FCA should adjust the mileage a little bit, they're are lying!!
