Editor's Overview

The 2015 Renegade is the new baby of the Jeep family, but behind its retro-cool looks and small size is a competent and efficient vehicle. As part of the emerging subcompact crossover-SUV segment, the Renegade competes with the Honda HR-V, Chevy Trax and Mazda CX-3. As expected in a Jeep, the Renegade stands out for its off-road ability.

Jeep Renegade, tiny but mighty.

The different settings on the Jeep are lovely. You can drive on rocks, sand, mud, snow, etc. Which is great for where I live because we have gotten 2 really big snow storms since I have had my Jeep & it went through the snow with no issues or sliding. The only downfall is the noise it makes when backing out. My brakes are fine & do not need to be replaced so I believe it is just something with the car. I would also love if it was a bit bigger considering I have 3 sons that have to fit in the back of my car. Overall I love my Jeep!

Four by four Jeep renegade.

The size is everything. From the outside it looks kind of small but once inside, it is extremely spacious. Great handling & 4x4 can get me out of any situation. I have a limited so all the comforts of a back-up camera, Bluetooth, heated leather seats, power seat, heated leather steering wheel. My only real complaint is the transmission is kind of shaky & the 4 cyl. Engine does not give a lot of torque. Very slow pick up & go.

I love the car because it is very fun looking it is great on gas!

I gave my Jeep renegade 2015 a 3 because I have a family and it is small inside. I wouldn't recommend for a family of 5 it also has electronic problems the check engine light came on after me only having it for 5 months and it was the air intake took it to the mechanic changed the piece and the check engine light came on again for the same thing got a new piece put it again and the check engine light still on.

Safety Recalls (4)

Electrical System > Software > Cybersecurity Aug 11, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 11, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V508000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Jeep Renegade vehicles manufactured September 18, 2014, to June 25, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with radios that have software vulnerabilities that can allow third-party access to certain networked vehicle control systems.
Consequence:
Exploitation of the software vulnerability may result in unauthorized remote modification and control of certain vehicle systems, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify and mail affected owners a USB drive that includes a software update that eliminates the vulnerability, free of charge. Optionally, owners may download the update to their own USB drive from http://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/ or take their vehicle to a Chrysler dealer for immediate installation. In an effort to mitigate the effects of this security vulnerability, Chrysler has had the wireless service provider close the open cellular connection to the vehicle that provided unauthorized access to the vehicle network. This measure may not have been implemented on all vehicles and does not address access by other means that will be remedied by the software update. The recall began on September 30, 2015. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R45.
Power Train > Automatic Transmission Jul 11, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 11, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V529000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Jeep Cherokee and 2015 Chrysler 200, Jeep Renegade, RAM ProMaster, and 2016 Fiat 500X vehicles equipped with 9-speed automatic transmissions. The transmission sensor clusters may have insufficient crimps in the transmission wire harness, and as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral. On August 29, 2016 Chrysler added the 2016 Fiat 500X vehicles to this recall.
Consequence:
If the vehicle unexpectedly shifts to neutral, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, dealers will reprogram the Powertrain Control Module and the Transmission Control Module and if necessary replace the transaxle range sensor wire harness, free of charge. The recall began on November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S55.
Suspension > Rear Feb 17, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 17, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16E013000
Summary:
Daystar Products International, Inc. (Daystar) is recalling certain aftermarket replacement rear control arm brackets included in Daystar's 2015-2016 Jeep Renegade 1.5" spacer kit, part KJ09168BK, shipped from Daystar to distributors between October 27, 2015 and November 5, 2015. The affected spacers may have improper or incomplete welds on the top flange on the rear control arm bracket, that can allow the rear axle to shift while driving.
Consequence:
If the axle moves there could be an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Daystar will notify owners, and direct them to repair shops to have the brackets inspected and replaced as needed, free of charge. The recall began on March 11, 2016. Owners may contact Daystar customer service at 1-623-907-0081 or by email at Jbilyeu@daystarweb.com. Daystar's number for this recall is 16-01.
Trailer Hitches Jul 19, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 19, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V545000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Jeep Renegade vehicles manufactured August 25, 2014, to June 25, 2016, equipped with a factory-installed optional trailer hitch package. The trailer hitch assembly may have been attached with only a single fastener per side, not three per side as required.
Consequence:
Without the proper amount of fasteners, the trailer hitch assembly may separate from the vehicle, and any towed vehicle may no longer be properly connected, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install two additional fasteners per side, free of charge. The recall began on October 13, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S62.
