38,716 on my Wife's 2015. Been in the shop for a water hose and rear seat belt tensioner. Been coast to coast a couple times with zero issues and an average of 30 mpg highway. Factory bumper to bumper is now toast, but bought Max care so no worries.

29,000. Not that high, but we have only had it a year. Mostly problem free, did have a tube from the Intercooler to turbo split. Quick fix under warranty, and it left the Jeep driveable while we were waiting for the part... with the added benefit of amazing gas mileage. Haha.

Hit 45,000 yesterday, no major issues. Had distortion with the radio, replaced radio with no change, they replaced the speakers and that fixed the problem. Had a split boot on front, they put in a new half axle with the new boot, seems strange but the boot came with the axle. Mileage has been decent, average 26-27 around town with some highway, usually above 30 strictly highway. Very pleased with our Renegade.

Wow you people put down the miles! Good to hear of very few problems. My wife and I do about 5K each on our cars and about 10K on the motorcycles per year. It'll take her 20yrs to get to 100K on the Renegade.

Renegade's twin here..2016 500X 1.4 6 speed with 46k suburban miles in 20 months. Engine and transmission are solid and reliable. Brakes did have a squeal but it went away on its own and still show over 50% pad life front and rear.

Most of the issues have been cosmetic: driver's side air vent mysteriously started turning chalky white and was replaced under warranty. Passenger side rocker panel between the body and door had 3 clips break for no reason causing it to bow outwards, still waiting on the replacement part. Lots of door panel creaks/rattles, probably the most infuriating thing about the car.

The biggest failure was the fresh air mode on the HVAC did not work. The system was stuck in recirculate. I discovered this on my own when changing the cabin air filter after a different dealer told me it was operating normally. The new dealer had to tear the whole lower dash apart to diagnose and fix. They replaced the flap door motor and gears under warranty, at a significant cost to Fiat (somewhere around $1200 to repair!).

Currently the passenger front suspension is making a clunk/squeak/crunch noise. I suspect bad stabilizer bar end links or it could be the strut/upper strut mount. My car is under warranty for another 4K so I will get it diagnosed soon.

Just rolled past 145,000 on my 2015 TrailHawk. Still on original brakes. The tranny gave out at 32,000. Current on seems to be shifting better as the miles are racked up.

Approaching 66,000 miles. 2015 Latitude 4x2 turbo manual. I have a long highway commute. Oil changes every 5k, air filter & plugs every 30k. No major issues. Lifetime average fuel economy right about 30 mpg.

2015 Trailhawk just rolled over 206000 miles. Had the second tune up completed. Has been an extremely reliable Jeep. Still on the original brakes, rotors, ball joints and tie rods. I have 125000 miles on the BF Goodrich KO2s. Minor problems have been a cracked gas fill tube, replaced under the Lifetime warranty, a blown door speaker and had to replace the fog lights as the bulbs I put in were to hot and melted the reflective surface off the light.
Tranny shifts fine, engine uses no oil in 7500 mile oil changes. MPG is still 28-30mpg.

Looking forward to another 100,000 miles.

My first Renegade had 43k miles after two years when I traded it in. My Trailhawk has 12k since February. No issues with either of them.

Saw this post and was thinking wow, I hit 50k+ on my ko2 and have serious cupping issues. I have 89,000 and have had no problems besides squeaky breaks and cupping tires. Replacing with pirrelli scorpion at plus, and aligning my car to hopefully fix the problem, and to not have to replace the struts. I have hit some dirt trails pretty rough and hard, treating it more like a rally car.

Got a whopping 13,380 on my new-to-me 2016 FWD Sport. Took it in to the dealer for an oil change and told them about the front plastic panel of the MySky roof not sealing well on both sides. They also discovered a "clunking" noise while driving that I had not yet noticed, and ordered new axles under a service bulletin. All under warranty. Really enjoy driving this little thing.

Sitting at 126782 on the clock of our '15 Limited. It had 14 miles on it when we bought it in '15. No "major" problems. On the ride home from the dealer when we purchased it, the RF window was inop. Hit a bump and it's worked fine since. The factory fog lights melted long ago. The FR inner fender is on trail somewhere in Missouri, the fuel door catch broke in Arkansas a few years back so I popped it out and gave it a toss across the parking lot. The headlight wiring is to small of gauge to actually handle the current so the connectors melted.

But in her defense: We have had this Renegade under water, across the salt flats, in the swamps of Louisiana, the mountains of New Mexico, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kentucky, across the plains of Kansas and Nebraska, and countless Oklahoma backroads.

She is my wife's daily driver and our family get away ride. Does it have a few downfalls? Yes. Would I trade any of the memories (good or bad) for a "perfectly reliable" vehicle? Hell no.
