Renegade Lattitude 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 295 miles


The problems haunting Jeep on their 9-speed automatic transmission have been inherited by the 2015 Jeep Renegade. I have owned this car now for 5 days and, on three separate occasions, I have experienced a sudden burst of acceleration while trying to come to a stop and also when letting the vehicle roll slowly forward (as in traffic at a stop light). It is quite disconcerting and I am very afraid what will happen if it does this while I am on slick roads.

I can see this transmission has been a major issue in Cherokees and I am wondering why Jeep is still putting them in their cars. Is this why the release of the Renegade took so long?
