I owned a VW golf D that they bought back and i bought the rene. Me and a lady friend used the Golf for a week in the desert and slept inside very comfortable. I layed the front seats forward then put my double air bed in their was kinda nice, but cozy. Even closed the hatch a couple of nights. Of course there wqere no shower or bathroom facilties but we had the wide open spaces for that. Havent done it with the rene but it is bigger than the Golf so should work just fine.
As a "let's see" test, I laid down the passenger seat, the rear seats and stuck an air mattress across all. Then I laid down. No. Freakin'. Way. And I'm vertically challenged being only 5'6" tall (I don't think it's politically correct to call me "short" anymore.....)
I'd have to be blind-stinkin-caveman-speaking drunk for that to be tolerated more than an overnight trip. Not to mention all your gear stacked high alongside you, inches away. I think sleeping in a casket would be more comfortable. I think those that do sleep inside have convinced themselves that it was okay.
Thinking it's "okay" is like saying that pebble in your shoe doesn't hurt that much...
I had a VW Westfalia Camper, now that I spent weeks in. Sleeping inside my Renegade on purpose and planned ? Nope. In an emergency ? Certainly. I'd rather throw a sleeping bag in the dirt and sleep there or toss it on the roof and sleep there.
The old adage comes to mind, "Just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be done.".
Those that do sleep in your Jeep; more power to you. Just not for me.
I just bought a Limited with the Panoramic roof.
Couple of engineering and practical problems, which they didn't think about (in Europe):
1. If there is a tear or jam ever, that is a major repair, perhaps $1000?
2. The material is delicate, so one rip and it's a challenge. When it is open...
Having some trouble searching this (the word “key” is too short for the search engine), but I seem to recall a thread about replacing the key.
I lost one of the 2 keys that came with my Renegade, and I need to replace it. There’s some confusion at the dealers about getting the new key...
I was wondering if others are having a fading problem with the black surround on the grill and lights. I've tried several products, but it still comes back faded after a few weeks. Looks terrible. Personally i don't think this should happen on a 23 year old traihawk and of course the dealers...
I Picked up my Renegade on monday 3/30/15 and I'm still finding new things and Easter Eggs. So a few of the secrets I have found is the center arm rest, that slides out and the fully adjustable sun visors. My favorite easter eggs is Bigfoot.. (Sorry no Pic of Bigfoot posted yet... I didnt want...
Please FCA, I really want the Renegade to live in Australia.
BUT really? No DIESEL option?
