So I had to have some warranty work done on the Truck.
The Dodge dealer gave me a brand new Jeep Renegade to drive.
What a shitbox.
The transmission never stops shifting, the dash looks like it was laid out by a 4th grader, and the controls feel cheap.
The acceleration is mediocre at best, the engine sounds like a sewing machine eating gravel while tripping on meth, and the handling is almost as good as my Kubota tractor. The Fiat 124 was a better car 50 years ago.
I cannot believe, as competitive as the small car market is that Jeep sells these things. For $22k, one can buy a LOT of small car from Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan, Kia, even Ford and Chevy and Subaru. None of them are luxury cars, but at least they are decently engineered.
On the bright side, the outward vision from the Renegade was decent…and the turn signals worked.
