Our 2015 Jeep Renegade has held up well up to this point. It now has over 22,000 miles on the odometer with few issues. Here's why I still like driving it.

    After spending less than a week with the "limited" version, I can't believe you guys like this POC. EPA average of 24 MPG and 22.1 average is good? Its a freaking tiny vehicle that has no space. The 16 Civic has FAR more room that this and will give you 35 MPG all day long. A comparable CRV adds 4 MPG across the board. Your long term and MUCH larger Pilot is just 2 MPG less than that.

    I don't get the appeal of the vehicle. The rental vehicle was inferior in every way with the cheesy "Jeep" obsessive references throughout, that microscopic screen and laughable backup camera.

    I guess if you are going to take it off road, it might be perfect. Otherwise, "no thanks" for me.

    Gee, Ed Hellwig...since this entry is entitled, "fuel economy update for June," maybe you could spare a word or two about the vehicle's fuel economy, no? You point out that it has way more miles on it than normal for your LT vehicles, and that many of those are but highway miles, but you fail to note that it's still getting pretty lousy fuel economy, and that in spite of using a lot of fuel it's still pretty gutless.

    But I guess not...no irony there?

    Just like your entry last month, in which you said the vehicle was starting to manifest squeaks and rattles (despite its fairly soft ride), that it was a little early for that, but then made a pronouncement that overall, the vehicle had "held together well." Huh?

    The 4 steps crammed into a 3 panel comic strip is exactly the kind of thing that would bother me every time I filled up.

    @kirkhilles1 Why do you keep comparing the Renegade to the Civic? They are two completely different classes of vehicle, and I seriously doubt that they are cross-shopped by a meaningful number of buyers.

    FWIW, I really like the 2016 Civic too -- but I will never buy one, because it's not in the segment that I am shopping.
