2014 Jeep Patriot High Altitude fwd, CVT Automatic w/ Auto-stick (No option for this car on review form) ... Vehicle had one previous owner, with 19,000 miles. Having driven it for 16 months - I recommend this to anyone who wants practicality, good looks and a bit of sophistication .. whether you take road trips with it or not. The worst part of the car, first: the CVT Transmission. This has been replaced on many Chrysler vehicles with a 6-speed auto, because people like to have their car SHIFT - cleanly and with no fuss, to the next gear. The CVT, in normal mode, doesn't really do that ... It has a 'gradual rubber-band' concept .. it slowly expands with acceleration, and contracts ... and does leave a sort of unsatisfying feeling. It's like as you go past 10mph it's gripping the engine too tightly, and doesn't let the power unwind. ... But that's in REGULAR mode -- Chrysler had done a not great job of advertising the Auto-stick feature, and how to use it. - Using the auto-stick, this 2.0 liter engine comes to life! It's good at merging onto the highway -- As you take the brake off and go to turn, onto the entrance ramp, you put the shifter to the right and a gear will appear on the dash (1) ... Then you pop the shifter to the right, repeatedly, as revs signal ... and it gives you all the power you need to get on the freeway! When you hit 6th gear ... then you put to the right and hold it, for 'Drive' - give it some gas and put the cruise control where you want it. It's easy ... and fun! It does mimic a stick-shift ... You basically got 6-speeds built in to the shifter .. but some people don't know it. Even these professional car places, like __, or _&_ apparently just drove it in 'auto' mode, and claimed 0-60 mph in freakin' 10.7 seconds or something. I assure you the High Altitude can get to 60 mph quicker than that. Normal leisurely driving around town, doing errands, with the trans in normal auto mode you go just fine. The trans is a bit loud, and so is the whole powertrain, but the " professional " reviewers don't understand a lot of people don't care about that. ... This car has the upgraded stereo - with the sun and sound package (including awesome moonroof) .. Uconnect center, to hook up your smart phone and have hands-free communication ... and Sirius Satellite Radio! Bad-a__. ... It's got leather seats, 17inch tires and awesome Mineral Grey rims. As well as the beautiful gun-metal Maximum Steel exterior paint, the sheer amount of stuff in this car really surprised me. My wife loves it. On the highway heavy wind doesn't really bother it - The suspension takes curves with aplomb, and the Patriot never feels tippy. Brakes feel solid, and safe. Cruising between 70-75 mph (Jeep has excellent Overdrive) I've gotten a decent 28mpg highway. The inside really is flat-out luxury - Really cold a/c, with 360-degree vent control ... cool lighted cup-holders ... and heated leather seats, for cold winter days. The 2.0 liter multi-valve motor isn't a torque monster, but if you rev it it will go, on the highway ... And (using the Auto-stick, and 89 Octane gas) it will keep up with any four, and many V6s, off the stoplight to about 50 mph. I don't understand other people's reviews different places saying this vehicle with the 2.0 is slow ... They're not. Maybe they don't know how to use the Auto-stick. You've got 158 horsepower .. And they're ALL THERE. (unlike many import small SUVs' hp rating) .... The thing I like best is the ride - It's a good combination of taut but comfortable. After many thousand miles the High Altitude is a great experience, for my wife {and occasionally me} ... All in all a satisfying purchase :-)

Great car until.....

In November 2014, we leased a brand new Patriot 4x4 with the CVT transmission for our 16 year old daughter. It's been a great vehicle around town but not on the freeway for an extended drive. We live in San Francisco and drove it to Los Angeles, 7/2016 on Interstate 5. We had to pull over 4x on the way due to the transmission overheating. When this happens the engine power is automatically reduced and you can't go over 40, you have to pull over and leave the car running until the transmission cools down. This is a huge safety hazard when you are in the fast lane and have to navigate to the right shoulder where the average speed on I5 is 75-80mph. On our return trip it overheated again. We took it to our local dealer upon our return and "they don't know what the problem could be, there are no error codes and the transmission fluid is not burnt." This vehicle only had 22,000miles on it. If you search "Jeep Patriot CVT transmission problems" you will find this is not an isolated occurrence. Fortunately for us, this is a lease vehicle and we are not stuck with it or trying to sell it. We will replace it in November 2016 with another brand which is more reliable on the highway, as we are greatly concerned with out daughters highway safety when she is driving from LA to SF from college. It's too bad because the Patriot was the perfect fit for her.

Not impressed

For me the Jeep Patriot is perfect for my needs. I am able to easily get in and out of the car without issues. The seats to me our comfortable and the rear storage is plenty of room for my needs. The only issue I see so far as I am still adjusting to my new car is to put my dogs in the back with their doggie seats is difficult as one side is way too wide to hook the safety straps, yes my dogs have their own car seats. I use to have a RAV4 and the storage in the car was more hidden, but overall the Jeep does have plenty of storage too. Can't truly give a better overall rating as the car is only a week old and so far I am liking it and time will tell how everything else is for maintenance and repairs.

It's a Jeep!

First of all, it's a Jeep. Do you want plush comfort when driving? I don't think so! It's a Jeep! You really feel the road. You really have to shift gears. The steering is pretty easy though. The worse thing about the Patriot is the front visibility at about 45 degrees on both sides. This is really a problem unless you're very careful when approaching crosswalks. I wish the gas mileage were a little better, but I shouldn't expect it on a car this size. I get 23 mpg in the city. It could be a little better. The fold-down rear seats are really neat - they fold down all the way, and the passenger-side front seat also folds down. I like the engine noise - I know what the engine is doing. It's not very loud, but you can hear it revving. 1st gear is powerful - I haven't had any problem going up steep hills on dirt. The other gears are fun because you can go fast in them without the engine over-revving, and you can hear the gas injectors doing their job. I drive in 4th gear under 40 mph, and can downshift to gears that would over-rev the engine in other cars (all other cars I've owned). Once you catch on to how the gears work it's a rush to use them, especially downshifting and revving up to 3 or 4000 to upshift. The brakes are super nice. I don't know they're there, and I've had to brake sharply on a couple of occasions - no problem, but then I've never had ABS brakes. (my brakes squeak when cold or wet at very low speeds). The agency where I bought the Patriot honors the warranty, no questions asked. And they wash the car when you service it! What I'm saying is, it's a little rough for the driving. The front seats are very comfortable. I like a little rough. It's a Jeep!!

I have had my Patriot for about a year now and I must say I have been enjoying the car. It is AWESOME for camping, I can put the rear seats down, slide the front seats up, and a twin inflatable mattress fits perfectly inside! I just leave my mattress and a pump in the back at all times, it's pretty sweet. Also has a built in flashlight in the roof, which is very handy when I am using the car as a tent, I know I have a flashlight in an arms reach above me. I have also used the car quite a bit off road. Taken it to a lot of dirt trails, and the car handles great when I lock the differential and turn the true 4x4 on. It doesn't slide at all coming up hills, actually has surprisingly good traction and I have crappy highway tires on my jeep. Very impressive. I also recently took my jeep to Mammoth Mountain (I'm a Southern Californian), so I was curious to see how it does in snow/ice as I never see those kind of conditions in SoCal. Ran in to some VERY icey roads in Mammoth, slapped on the locking differential, and never thought twice. Once again, more than impressed. Overall I love the car. I basically got the bare bones version, so it is VERY simple. Radio is a little dated, I plan to replace that with a more modern stereo system/display. All in all, I am getting what I want out of the car. Good gas mileage, fits all my camping stuff, perfect for skiing/snowboarding, fits all my long ocean fishing rods, and I can sleep in the thing. Love it

I have had a lot of problems I love my jeep

03/2016 After almost 40k miles the engine is still strong. Of course I have the manual transmission. Power is still decent. When pushed this whip can scoot. It pulls to redline but timing the shifts is difficult. The shifter is a mush box, while the engine is strong and the vehicle light, you have to ask yourself if it's worth racing the guy in the RAV4 or Escape? There is so much disconnect in the shifter that you won't be able to take advantage of the free reving and torqey little motor. It'll pull like crazy in 2nd (keeps up with a 3-series BMW) when you go to grab 3rd it hangs up and wont engage until the R's fall way off. Try rushing it and you'll likely grenade the engine. It's a known fact Jeep puts cold plugs in to get better mileage. This comes at the expense of acceleration, gas mileage and refinement. Install a set of new platinum plugs http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BPITKQG. This will be the best $12 you ever spent. Long story short I changed the plugs and it went from a snarling beast to a pussy cat. It takes about 30mins max for a competent DIYer to accomplish. Much much smoother under acceleration. The engine just works better. Installed GoodYear Assurance TripleTred tires. The unidirectional low profile tire. With the 17" alloy wheels ala' Ebay. The car just handles better and feels more assured in snow and with the new tires hasn't hydroplaned once.. I am pleased with this little SUV. It's low maintenance both in appearance and operation. The roof racks got ripped off but that was my fault for not strapping the sailboards down properly and driving in 100+ mph winds. The interior has remained rattle free, the seats are losing their firmness and could probably be replaced. The windshield is bulletproof. A metal bolt came flying into it at freeway speeds, I watched it's trajectory from the back of a semi straight into my window. It made a huge CRACK sound alas but for a chip the glass is intact. Installed a new radio and 6x9 speakers and a sub. This little SUV is an installers dream with plenty of room for subs and amps. Installed a trailer hitch and that's it. The so called experts love to bagg on it. Sedan like ergonomics mean this little SUV is easy to climb into and out of. Not only that but the cargo area/ deck height is low so even my mom can get stuff loaded. It's a what I call an Obama-ride. With the economy uncertain and reemployment prospects slim am I going to go out and spend 30k+ on Subaru? This jeep fits the bill, $16,895 and I don't cry over door dings and bird dropping. Great car for the money.

Love the car!

I do love this car. The only reason I will not give it 5 stars is I had one issue with the thermometer that cut the fans on to keep the car from over heating while idling went bad and it would start to over heat while going through drive thrus randomly. We changed that and it seems to be doing very good! I love the drive of the car. The gas mileage is awesome. I would not trade this car for anything!

My wife and I purchased a 2014 Jeep Patriot from Bayside Chrysler in February 2014. 4 months later the vehicle started to make a winding grinding sound when going 65 or more MPH. A week after this started the vehicle started to make that sound and when on the highway, the car's overheating signal came on and the car decelerated from 70 to 30 MPH. When stepping on the accelerator, the car continued to make that winding sound and decelerated until it came to a stop. I pulled the car over to the side of the highway, shut if off and waited in the heat for about 45 minutes until the car started and the problem went away. The car has repeated to do this from July 2014 to July 2015 six more times. One time, the vehicle did that when driving with my family on I-80 and there was no shoulder. We were almost hit by a large truck due to our slow speed on those winding roads. On one occasion, the car did this going down a steep hill and the brakes locked up and we swerved into traffic. The car has been in the shop in both Bayside and East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania 5 times and they cannot find the issue. The dealership in Pennsylvania where the car was towed to twice recommended that the car only go to Bayside Jeep from now on. My last visit to Bayside Jeep was July 29, 2015. They could not find the issue and released this death trap to me even after the representatives at Jeep Hotline, who let me tell you are awful as well, recommended that I not drive this vehicle due to it being unsafe. Now, Bayside Jeep wants me to go into the vehicle with one of their employees and drive for hours until the problem occurs. Not only are they putting my life in danger but they are also doing this to one of their own. I am so disappointed about the way this has been handled from Jeep's end, Bayside Jeep and Gray's Jeep in Pennsylvania. As the owner of three Jeep Grand Cherokee's, I am disappointed that I even entered the doors of Jeep of Bayside. Not to mention that the business manager of the dealership told me that the car was a death trap and told me he would help me by declaring this a lemon. He has never returned my calls and I am placing these messages publicly in the event that I face an accident or worse in this 2014 Jeep Patriot. Yes, I have gone to all Agencies including Better Business, Attorney General's Office and now an attorney. Be aware and do research before you buy a car from this dealership. I know that people rant and rave on these and many websites but I am being truthful in this review and I warn you to do your research! I am a NYC School Principal with a doctorate degree and I feel that I did not do the right thing by dealing with Bayside Jeep. I have to add this piece to the review....so I have I case number with Jeep and the case manager, Jeanette, I call about 3-5 times per day. She almost never returns calls and has done zero. Her job is to tell me what I need to do and lie to me and tell me that she can never get through to the dealer or service at Bayside Jeep. Imagine corporate not being able to get through to Jeep. So today, after calling her four times she returns my call at 6:00pm and asks me whats up. I say....were you not going to call dealer and find out what next steps need to be taken. She has the audacity to say to me to be honest I forgot to call....I tell her I can't believe that the lives of my family members and I are not so important....she back tracks and says well I did call but did not get through....she got caught in a lie. We left off that she would call me in the morning-first call-after reaching the dealer. This whole situation is very frustrating and I do not trust this dealer, Jeep nor my car.

What do the pro's know?

Apparently not what some one buying a Jeep wants. All the pros write negative reviews about the Patriot. They bash the interior, the acceleration, and lack of gimmicky gagetes. So having read what they did not like and what they saw as better, I ran right out and bought one!! This is a true small Jeep!! Acceleration: great for a 4 cylinder that is also geared for light towing and off road. Interior: I think they are really stretching and looking for something to say negative. I have the sport model so it is the base model. I have no complaints at all except the standard Jeep complaint about the straight up and down rear seat. There is an optional seat that will tilt back some. I feel that should be standard on all models. As far as the pros comments. Will they should stick to reviewing automobiles that have been transformed into SUV,s. They have quite plush rides and snazzy interiors and lots of dodads to entertain you as you sit in city traffic. They are all wheel drive that will enhance it's ability in the snow and rain. They are not meant for off road or use beyond that of an automobile.

Not what I wanted, but turned out to be a good car

I am waiting for winter to see how this does in the snow as it is not four wheel drive. It was not what I wanted and I really needed 4x4 BUT so far this SUV serves the purpose. Great for camping and I have been in many different terrains with only 4X2 and it still performs great!

I was not planning to buy this but I was in a crunch and the dealership was running a great special on these SUVs. I opted for the manual model. It shifts easily and smoothly. I cannot find a bad thing to say about this vehicle. It is a little boxy for me, but other than that, it's great. If you're looking for a great value and need a little extra space, this car is great for you. The only other thing I can think of is that when you have the AC on, the car struggles to accelerate.

I've owned a 2014 Jeep Patriot for a little over a year and they've reminded me multiple times why I'll never purchase a Jeep again. As a few others have stated, they simply don't stand behind their product. I had an issue with the VIN being manufactured incorrectly where the vehicle wasn't able to be licensed (or legally driven). I've already spent a week without a car, am told it's going to take months to adjust the plate, and Jeep has repeatedly refused to help provide a replacement, or solution. You'll be treated better if you're trying to return a bag of half-eaten food to Wal-Mart, than if you have an issue with your Jeep, and for a $20,000 product, that's completely unacceptable.

I purchased my patriot in May of 2014. Every since then, I've been so impressed with my patriot. I'm a college student at Washington State University. It snows a lot in the winter time. This jeep handles great in all types of weather. From school to my home town, Seattle WA, is about a 5 hour drive. My patriot does great on the road and handles hydroplaning, snow, gusts of wind, and carrying heavy loads of my stuff greatly. Has enough space to take a group of friends out on the town, parks basically anywhere in the city, great at U turns, and has enough power to take me back to school in all seasons. The freedrive 1 system works great and is much better than most CUVs on the road.

Bought 2 2014 Jeep Patriots last year. Within the first 2000 miles the brakes on both Jeeps starting squealing. The pads were replaced and then the drums. The squealing continued. After multiple service trips, Chrysler basically told me they could not do anything about it. The squealing was "normal" So I now have 2 new cars that squeal every time we put them in reverse and apply the brakes. I will tell everyone I know to not buy a Jeep. They do not stand behind their product and know nothing about customer service.

Overall I do like the car. I am with mixed emotions on the fuel economy as it does better on the hwy. than around town as most any car but the numbers vary greatly. I have only 2k miles to date. I like the style and color of the car. The cvt is fine esp. with the option to use it in manual mode. The brakes are good. I did have to get a minor paint issue fixed by the dealers body shop. The car handles well and everything is located where you need it to be. The seats are some of the best esp for the price but would like lumbar support. Time will tell on reliability since it really is a Hyundai Mitsubishi Dodge engine. I have had an issue with the car hesitating to start about 7 times now.

Please don't judge this car by the "expert" reviews. I've owned this car for one year and put 14k miles on it. I love it! Gas mileage is as advertised or even better (and that's with a base automatic engine). Interior is simple, but more than adequate. Ride is a little noisy on the highway, but hey, it's a Jeep not a Mercedes. If you're looking for a smaller SUV that's reliable and affordable then I highly recommend you check out the Patriot.

After 1.5 years ownership, we have been very pleased with our 2014 Patriot Sport, 2.4L, 6 speed auto, 2wd. It suits our farm lifestyle fine. Pre purchase research shows the engine to be unrefined, but extremely reliable and trouble free. Paired with the 6 speed auto, it is quieter and has adequate zip for safe driving. It is easy and economical to service if you are a diy'er. Ride and comfort are good. Suspension and road noise are what one would expect on a utility vehicle.....worse than a large touring sedan but completely acceptable. Considering last winter the worst in decades, it handles rain and snow excellent (even 2 wheel drive).

Fun Little SUV

To Jeeps credit they offer one of the few remaining SUVs with a stick shift. All others have gone luxury. I simply cannot stomach paying upwards and beyond 25,000 for a 4-banger (30k for a Outback with a 172hp, 2.5L,seriously?). As a person that prefers that smaller engines.4-cylinder, are mated to a manual this was the only real option in my price range. I purchased it at Elk Grove Jeep where there were 80 units on display. I knew I wanted a patriot and leaning toward a 4x4. From my experience test driving everything on the lot; avoid anything with the automatic, 2.0 or 2.4. Testing the 5M and the 2.4 with the 4WD off was immediately apparent. Torque off the line was strong!

Much better than the reviews

I purchased the 2014 manual version, because I understand that small engines and economy come at a price. With the manual transmission, this car has fine acceleration and handling. I live in NE, so the AC was no big deal to do without and I prefer manual windows and locks in the winter. What's left then is a nice comfortable SUV that has traction control, hill assist start, fog lights, cruise control, etc. for $12,900. This is absolutely the best value for the money. In fact, I traded in my 2010 RAV4, because of the litany of problems it had. The amount I owed on the RAV was almost exactly what it cost me for the NEW Patriot with an excellent warranty.

Please with the Patriot

I bought one of these a week ago. My package is known as the Oscar Mike, which is a sub-package of the Latitude. My main goal was to replace my current vehicle with one that my increasingly aged parents can get in and out of better. The previous car was a 2003 Merc Sable. My parents can hop in and out of the car without too much difficulty and for when mom needs a wheelchair, that fits in the back without too much effort.

Surprisingly capable Jeep

I love my Patriot. It is true, there are many SUV's to choose from with more flash and flare, but do not let the professional reviews deter you. I bought a fully loaded Patriot Latitude, with the Sun/Sound Group, Bluetooth, Automatic rear view mirror, and the Freedom Drive II off road package for under 23k. It has been a year now and this Patriot has been an absolute joy to own. I bought it to explore and have fun. It has delivered.

Absolutely no problem!

Funny story - While waiting for a Ford Torneo from Spain, my little Chrysler broke down - expensively. Had to cancel the order, forfeit the deposit and look for a new vehicle. The wife said she wouldn't mind going back to a Jeep again, so there we are. Read the negative reviews (from professionals) and the positive reviews (from owners) and found nothing to put me off - except a growing skepticism of professionals. They were wrong on every count! The salesman actually finagled a discount to rebate the $500 deposit, after I agreed to buy and here we are!

First off, don't listen to the harsh reviews. They aren't reasonable. Secondly, this is NOT a Grand Cherokee. The Patriot is a cute little SUV (my first). It has all the comforts that a reasonable person would need, minus the elbow room of a larger vehicle. Secondly...it IS a Jeep...not a Lincoln. If you want a cute little SUV that rides and handles like a Jeep...then this is your car. I, for one, love it. The Latitude has all of the nice bells and whistles such as a nice stereo, hidden USB port for your iPOD, Blue Tooth for your phone, electric windows and door locks, heated seats, etc.

I drink my coffee black, and now drive an American Icon

My first vehicle was a 1965 American Rambler station wagon with three on the tree. The Jeep Patriot is no nonsense SUV that will take me wherever I want to go; moreover, It truly is an all-purpose vehicle without all of the bells and whistles. I have lived from the Caribbean to the Hawaiian islands and every time zone between (except Alaska), and this Jeep Patriot would be an asset in every past and future home; moreover, for its on- or off-road ability. However, in my case why finance stuff that I do not need.

Incredible Value

I have never been a jeep fan, but I wanted a vehicle with decent room, good gas mileage, and inexpensive. I looked at toyota, honda, and others, but prices were too high. Then I read about the patriot here on Edmunds and got interested. I reluctently went to the local dealer and drove one and I was shocked! I selected a 4 cyl with front wheel drive and a 5 spd manual and it drives more like a honda accord than a jeep. It is very basic (A/C is the only option) but I purchased the vehicle brand new for $13,288 including dealer doc fees. (The MSRP was $18,000) My first tank ful of gas I got 30.1 mpg! The Patriot is solid, an incredible value and highly recommended.

Best Small Suv on the Market

My wife and I purchased our Patriot at the end of August , we bought it for her to drive back and forth to work and around town , she loves it , the handling is excellent , the ride is firm yet forgiving , we have the 2.4 engine and it has the power to get out of its own way and then some , we average 26mpg , its rated at 21/27 we get 24/30 . And yes it is a 4x4 haven't been able to use that feature yet I was told NO 4 wheeling in her jeep lol.

After researching many other SUVs, I discovered the Jeep Patriot. I was looking for something that would fit my family of 4 and provide off road capability for outdoor adventures. This SUV is awesome. We took it off road and were able to go pretty much wherever we wanted. Outside of the off road package, the size is perfect for our small family. The vehicle has plenty of room and seats us all comfortably. The gas mileage is great and even though Edmonds complained about the performance of this vehicle, I have not had any problems with performance and do not agree with this part of their review. I highly recommend this vehicle.

Very Surprised and Pleased!!

I had a Titan and needed something more practical but cool looking at the same time. I researched numerous cars and became drawn to the Patriot. I got a great deal through the internet (dont go to dealer at 1st anymore, call the fleet sales or go to internet) and went to test drive it and check it out. I ended up being very surprised with the overall experience and purchased a black one. The ride is smooth and the features which came with it are awesome. I have the sun sound package and remote start. Inside is nice as well. Nothing too flashy, but very simple and clean. Im surprised with some of the negative reviews which it received. For the price, this is top of the line

Disregard "expert reviews"

I disregarded expert reviews and read owner reviews instead on the Jeep Patriot. I'm glad I did. I purchased my 2014 Patriot Sport 4x4 last month after looking at the CRV, RAV4, Escape, and Subaru XV. I'm 6'4' and have more than enough leg and headroom and like the simplicity of the Jeep's interior. Although, most 2014 Patriots come with a new 6-speed auto transmission, I opted for the Freedom Drive 2 package with the CVT. Last weekend, I took a road trip from middle North Carolina to middle Tennessee and back crossing the Appalachian Mountains on steep grades and winding roads. The handling is great, the steering's predictable, and the ride is smooth. Power is sufficient enough to get me up
