Best jeep I’ve ever had

Love it. 2005 automatic. 115,000 miles on the clock. Smooth, classy, solid and very comfortable. As they say; look after your car and it will look after you. Get it serviced, don’t hammer it on the roads, enjoy the ride. I’m smitten Show details

Jeep KJ Renegade CRD 2005 - Brilliant

It has never missed a beat. As long as you don’t neglect you vehicle you shouldn’t have any issues.

The Turbo Diesel engine seems great, no complaints.

The only issues would be my roof lining kinda sagging down and the rear window shocks not holding the window open.

Great all round 4wd that seems robust.

Jeep Cherokee CRD Renegade - Brilliant

I have had the Jeep Cherokee CRD Renegade for a long while now. Other than the usual log book servicing I can fault it.

Whilst I only do lite FWD on the sand & snow a few times it goes great. It has that good old fashioned turbo diesel feel & has never let me down.

The worst car I've ever bought , expensive to run and repair

Awful to drive no take off up hills, noisy to drive and expensive to run and repair. Back seats very uncomfortable. In summer when it was very hot the back door would not open . The drivers seat had to be close to the under dash to reach the pedals so cramped.

Handy vehicle

I purchased a 2003 Jeep Cherokee Sport and loved it! Manual transmission was easy to drive. Great visibility with no blind spots. Could park it anywhere and was nice to drive on road. When it got real, it could climb the steepest and roughest hills off road with no dramas. Towed without a struggle and felt safe. Whilst it had a few issues mechanically, I did drive it 140 klm's every day and it rarely let me down. Even my mechanic said "She just keeps on going doesn't she!". I would definitely have another one.

Still the best car I have ever experienced in 60 years

My second Jeep after 15 years. Even better than the XJ. Fuel consumption in city hopeless, in country a lot better. Happier to pay for fuel than tow trucks. Gas struts a common failure after five years, bonnet, tail gate etc.Still, cheap to replace. Found Jeep dealers service?(2) hopeless. Find a good independent mechanic and stick there.

Still waiting 17 months for a part (tow bar) to be replaced under a world wide recall!

I have a 2005 2.8 CRD. That will not start when the engine is cold until it is properly warmed up still won’t start if you switch it off.
Everything on the fuel rail has been replaced including the high-pressure pump or sensors Glow plugs and injectors.
The only thing that allows it to start is a squared of starter fluid and then it runs fine, but once cold will not start again.

When cranking there is no rpm, showing the rpm only appears once the car starts from starter fluid Has anybody any idea what could be causing this issue?
