I bought my Jeep Patriot about 2 months ago and so far the more I drive it, the more I love it. It's a sport model with a manual transmission. While I was looking through reviews online before I bought the car, I was noticing people seemed to be having a lot of frustration with the automatic transmission. Let me tell you these problems do not pass over at all to the manual version. My jeep gets about 23 city m/g and 25-26 highway m/g. For the size of this car i thought this was great. The Patriot rides very smoothly and drives really well in inclement weather. Cargo space is smaller than one may expect, but to me it's the perfect amount (with space enough for me and my dog to sleep in the back. Comfortable for long trips as the driver. (Haven't had any passengers besides my pup). It has good extra stuff as well. (Aux plug, cruise control, etc) Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better car. Like I mentioned before the more (or longer) I drive it. The more I love it!
We literally fell in love with our Jeep Patriot the moment we saw it sitting on the showroom floor. Quite frankly, I had never heard of or seen a Jeep Patriot before. We needed to find a vehicle that has enough space in the back to put my husband's electric scooter (which breaks down) as he is disabled. This vehicle fits the bill in every way. The car is easy to get in and out of (important for somone who is disabled). It is spacious and comfortable. I love the heated seats when it is cold or my back is really hurting. It has all the features found on more expensive SUVs. I really recommend the Jeep Patriot to anyone looking for a SUV.
Great midsized vehicle with superb gas mileage. Vehicle can be appreciated more with when added features like 17inch wheels, fog lights, garage door opener, and roof rack. Comfortable drive with key safety features. Only draw back is GPS Navigation system is available on fully equipped Limited Patriot.
