Most SUV's now make you feel like you are in a cockpit, the front is soooo small. The Patriot has plenty of room not only in front but plenty of room in back to load larger items.
I drive hundreds of miles each month and find the SUV maneuvers well, but rides a bit bumpy.
Seat heaters are fantastic!
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.
It is the *perfect* car. It's not HUGE like other SUV's but it's not totally small either. It has a lot of space inside - great for trips - lots of pluses in this Latitude. I would highly recommend a Jeep Patriot to anyone - lots of perks like heated seats, remote start, drives like a dream. I don't know why I waited so long to get one!
