Wonder when will Renegades be rolled out to western Canada? Pending the fixes required for the transmission and other issues I'm thinking might be a while. There was only one unit in Calgary that I know of in a sport trim and one limited in Northern Alberta thus far.

Saddening to know that there are serious issues of the transmission and other issues including the rust proofing of the under carriage and body mounts.

I was so close to placing a factory order until I heard the news which has put any decision I make in regards to buying the Renegade on hold.

Build quality is important and I think they were rushing to market and sacrificed build quality which in fact will only hurt sales as to what could have been. I'm sure many have become as apprehensive as I have over recent issues. When you get a head engineer saying that the issues they are facing with the renegade have created for him an engineering nightmare.....doesn't make the consumer feel at ease.

They have been rolled out to Western Canada, and have been for at least a good month or so. I started seeing them just before the Easter long weekend.
But was that before the delays to do with the transmission?

It's exactly because of issues like that that I choose to wait out ordering until the vehicle has been on the market for a while.

Again, it was before the Easter long weekend. Delayed transmission issues were reported 1 to 2 weeks ago.

I went to Jeep.ca today and saw that within a 500 km radius of my address in AB there are currently 43. Airdrie has a few and Calgary has more. They're here, just gotta look for them.

Yeah Calgary has very few. As in one north edition here, one north edition there, literally!

Check it out.... There was one north edition at Renfrew, one at varsity, one at courtesy, zero at big 4. Hardly constitutes many IMO.

Definitely Zero with my sky sun roof system and definitely absolutely zero in trail hawk or limited trim. Nothing above north edition. I don't think those first models will move fast especially since the media info regarding "problems".

Wouldn't take a chance on any of those units since they likely been sitting there prior to the announcement of issues.

Will see what happens pending fixes.
