Jeep offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2023 Jeep Renegade is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Jeep Renegade has a score of 76, implying a 0.047% chance of driver death (4.2% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.041%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.6%.

We estimate that the 2023 Jeep Renegade has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0472% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.3893%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0472% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.3893% chance of being injured.

Jeep's ProTech I active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. Optional safety features on the 2023 Jeep Renegade which we recommend include Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but others may also improve safety. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you. Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps, which is optional on the 2023 Jeep Renegade, points headlights towards the direction that the vehicle is heading, even on turns.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
