The SUV is a smaller one and meets more expectations than I expected. It drives very smooth and is a gas saver. Very spacious and comfortable, especially when I have groceries. I did not expect it to be as great until I researched it and am glad I choose this jeep over two other leading competitors. The only problem is I would have liked higher horsepower in the engine but I am still satisfied and love my jeep.
Great on gas, recently involved in a car accident and thanks to the way it was built, the rear impact was hard. The head rest deployed protecting my neck. My husband also had an accident on another jeep vehicle long ago and nothing happened to him, I will say that jeep vehicles are reliable, safe, comfortable and fun to drive based on every kind of experience I encountered.
I love the Patriot
2014 Jeep PatriotMarty - Knoxville, TN03/09/2015
I love this vehicle. It's very peppy and has been fantastically competent during the nasty weather. Mine is the four wheel drive version, and I have averaged 23.9 MPG over 5939 miles. The mileage has dropped to about 22.3 over the last month, I assume that is mostly due to warming it up in the morning and the additional use of 4 wheel drive in the snow.
