    What is everyone else considering if they do not purchase a renegade for whatever reason. Price, comfort, size, quality. I am considering a Subaru Crosstrack if I do not fall in love with the renegade. I am also only interested in the TH edition so an over priced renegade for the TH is a concern for me.
