"Love the color (black), love my sunroof, love the seats comfort, love the sound system, love the smooth ride, love the cargo capacity, love the interiors color (tan), love the spacious interior, love the boxy look, love the interior design. LOOOVe the price after rebates ($12000)"
"I just bought a new 2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4X4. I am more impressed every day I drive it. It is a ton of fun and don't be fooled by the 2.4L 4 Cyl it has a good amount of umpf behind it. I Hope that Jeep comes out with a 6cyl in the future but this is a great car I just think the 6cyl would be that much more fun to drive. I can't say enough good things about the Patriot. I highly suggest it if you are looking for a small SUV. I think I am a Jeep man for life! Thats how impressed I am."
"Have owned my Jeep Patriot for a year. I am now getting 28 MPG with combination city and highway driving. I got up to 30 MPG on a road trip (highway driving only).
I love the fold-flat seats and the roominess.
I don't love the way the bumber is a bit flimsy.
All in all, a great price for a big car with good features."
"I bought me jeep patriot in october 2008 and got the 4x4. I have drivin many different vehicles in the snow and have found this to be the best. I hardly use it in four wheel drive it goes so good. It also great for going off road. I have been very happy with my patriot so far and would recommend it to any one."
"because of gas prices traded for a loaded LMT outstanding ride for a small suv not enough power but very good mpg. 4+4 auto 21 city, 27 on a two lane at 55 mph and 24.5 on 4 lanes at 65 to 80 mph.. for 23,500 we're very satisfied.. 8,500 miles in 15 months, outstanding in snow an ice..not happy with only worth 17,500 trade in , but will keep for a while...."
"I just got out of college and needed a car to commute to work, as well as haul all of my DJ gear at night. This car handles awesome, is stylish (which impresses friends) and is extremely comfortable to drive long distances. Sometimes I wish it were a V6 to execrate a bit faster, but other than that I am 95% satisfied! PS: How did I live with out satellite radio?"
"Bought a 2008 new in Nov 08 for a little under 14k. It has a little under 5k miles on it. No problems with it. I am a little disappointed in the cheap plastic used to make the interior. No padding anywhere, just hard plastic but it isn't an issue with performance just Chrysler being cheap. The vehicle was great in the snow and gas mileage is what I expected. It's not great mileage but the engine has some oomph and the ability to switch to manual shifting is fun too.
I would like to upgrade to a 4 door Wrangler this year or next."
"I have found my Patriot to be the best of all the cars I have owned to date. It has great versatility, from everyday driving, to rough roads, and even a tad bit of off roading. The interior is so very comfortable and large. I love beign in a smaller SUV but feeling like I am not crampe. Being 6 feet tall, I have plenty of headroom. Gas mileage is good, not great. Sounds system is good. Has had to be in service twice now. Once for A/C problem, and once for battery failure. Would reccomend an extended warranty, even though this comes with lifetime powertrain. Classic Jeep looks. If I had to do it all over again, I might purchase a black one instead of white, but that's all."
"Have owned my Patriot for about 6 months and have 23K miles on it. It performs nicely as I travel between mountains and flats. Good power; nice handling; my only complaint is that it isn't a pickup--which is my fault. Gas mileage is an average of 22mpg. Just checked the KBB for trade in value--less than $10K! It has depreciated almost 50% (from what I paid $19K) in 6 months!!!"
"Overall I think that this is a great vehicle.
Great on Gas, has plenty of room, these
are the good points.
the only thing that I can say negative is that
the pickup isn't the greatest when you first take off and too much plastic on the inside.
overall I love it and would recommend it to someone"
"You can buy the basic no frills Patriot, but why would you?
For just a little more you get the Freedom II package. It is referred to as "Trail rated"
Even city dwellers will find the value here.
You have a bit better ground clearance and you can lock in the 4wheel drive for any small off road challenge. This Patriot pulls our 16ft fishing boat just fine. Without the boat I am getting an average of 25 milles per gallon. I like that. How ever, the tank only holds 13.5 gallons and I live way out in the country. So I have to top off the tank every time I am near a gas station.
Over all it has been a good choice for a small outdoorsy family. (paint is a little thin and has chipped in a few small spots from rocks)."
"HAVE HAD MINE FOR ONE WEEK . 20 $ FILLED IT UP FROM NEAR EMPTY.WAY BETTER THAN MY 05 DAKOTA CREW I TRADED FOR IT .BUT THAT HAD A 4.7.CVT TAKES A LITTLE GETTING USED TO BUT AUTOSTICK IS FUN.GOT AN 08 SPORT WITH PWR WIN.,LOCKS,4WD AND YES SEATS FOR 14000.OVERALL A GREAT DEAL CAN,T WAIT FOR WI WINTER TO KICK IN SO I CAN FIND OUT HOW GOOD 4WD WORKS"
"A great buy, practical, great gas mileage, excellent 4wd, enough power when coupled with the 5sp manual. Automatic makes car seem underpowered. Plenty of room, just wish it had more ground clearance and a higher tail gate, seem to bump my head on it too often. Overall a nice vehicle and you cannot beat that lifetime warranty (as long as they have it)."
