Love the old school square body type. I hate the the new rounder body styles on most SUVs. Nice to drive. Price is great. So much easier to make a car purchase at carmax. Will never go to a dealer for a car again.

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.

I would recommend this to someone who does not commute far. It is extremely safe, very spacious, rides smooth, is not loud, and doesn't cost a lot of money to fill up!
