When you go in their everyone is quick to help you and get you the loan for the car of your dreams. Once the loan is supposedly approve you go to the finance dept. and do all the paperwork. You leave and two weeks later they call you to tell you that the loan didn't go through and that you need to come and redo paperwork with a higher payment. When you ask why it took them so long they just say well the bank rejected it and they expect you to sign everything again and they dont want you to ask any question. When you challenge what they tell you they get upset and act like you are causing them issues If they would have done their job right I would have to go and waste my time again with them.

I am ecstatic about my Jeep Patriot. It handles great, feels comfortable. I can't say enough about it. The fuel economy says its 24-26, but I'm getting 27-29 in the High Rocky Mountains of CO, and live at 9000 ft elevation. The steering is a little tight at first until you get used to it's touchiness. After 3 weeks, I have adjusted or it's gotten better. The only problem I have with it so far is the sunroof leaks when I'm in the high pressure car wash. Water splashes me in the head and face. I took it in for service and they are fixing this soon. I also opted for the lifetime warranty, because I intend to keep this Jeep for life. It's my 3rd Jeep, and I couldn't be happier. I thought I'd be sacrificing power and durability for better gas mileage over the Jeep Rubicon, but I was completely wrong. I have not sacrificed anything but the removable top and I have benefitted way beyond my expectations. The ride is smooth and quiet. They had me at heated seats and sunroof.

Can't understand the negative reviews!!

As a rental car, I had a Jeep Patriot Sport with power windows and AC while my other car was in the shop and I fell in LOVE with it. Warm and comfortable with a solid feel and GREAT visibility. When I got my car back I drove to a jeep dealership and looked into owning one. I ended up with a 2016 Jeep Patriot High Altitude with leather seats, AC, 4WD, 2.4L 6 speed automatic, Navigation, Uconnect system, Sirius satellite radio, back-up camera, seat heaters and cargo cover in a beautiful deep cherry red with dark gray interior. Mine actually has 2 USB ports. One is in the glove box as another reviewer pointed out, but the other is right on the front of the radio itself. It also has an outlet in the center console that is easily accessible. It is a beautiful car with a much higher end feel than you would think for an SUV. The sound system in mine is great also. I have been paying attention to gas mileage and it is actually doing better than my 1.4L w/Turbo that I traded in. Maybe it has a larger tank, but my fuel costs have not increased with this car. It has everything I need/want and skips the overwhelming extras. I am not the person who needs to download the latest Android apps onto my car. This car does speak to a certain personality type I think. It is stylish and well equipped and no-nonsense. It doesn't have the Turbo feature or blind spot detection, but you don't feel like you need it because the visibility is excellent all around. I personally love the look of it - reminiscent of the older Jeeps. I hear that the Compass is essentially the same car with a different exterior - I preferred the Patriot myself. I also heard this will be that last year of production (2017) for the Patriot. Will be sad to see it go. I look forward to getting behind the wheel everyday, which is so important when most of us live our lives depending on our cars.

I don't get the Jeep thing

I got this 2016 Jeep patriot as an unwanted upgrade at enterprise. I wanted something that got good gas mileage and they had no cars. I was told this this would but it consistently got only 21 MPG. Soooo where to start, the engine sounds like an angry sewing machine, and it doesn't do much to the motivate the CVT that has trouble changing gear. It idled rough... It had 5341 miles it should run great I would think. It rides like a truck, rough and bouncy, and there is tons of oversteer. The front seats lack lumbar support, they are manual with minimal adjustability. The radio made a terrible high pitched noise when I plugged in my phone into aux and it was plugged into the outlet. The door sills are high and I smack my feet on it getting in and out. There is no visibility out of the back windows unless you lay the rear seat down, the roof line gives poor visibility out of the rest. I've driven jeeps I like and lots of other SUVs that were great, but this has to be the worst. There was nothing that stood out as good beyond the braking performance.

I've only put 200 miles on it, but I love it so fa

I bought mine (Altitude) with 3,500 miles on it for $18.9k. I'm very pleased thus far. It's a pretty basic suv. It reminds me of the old Cherokee Sport versions pre- 2002 - right before they started making the Liberty. Auto dimming mirrors (actually performs very well, maybe the best dimming mirror I have ever driven with); Cruise Control; AC; Fog Lights; Auto Headlights; remote start; bluetooth (can sync my music pretty decent sound); touch free phone (works really well, and I usually never use touch free phone system because I usually hate it, but this works very well, no yelling needed); steering-wheel buttons; voice command; sirius; power windows/mirrors; heated seats; heated mirrors. Also, I'm not sure what this feature is called, but I'm pretty sure its a variable transmission - meaning that I can drive it in automatic, or I can flick the shifter and it then turns to a manual 6speed transmission. I think thats very cool and enjoy it. Scared me the first time as I had no idea I had transferred it to manual and couldn't make it up a hill. I thought I bought a lemon before I realized I had engaged the manual transmission, lol. I mention this also because i have read several reviews where people say that sometimes their Patriot won't go over 40mph because of "overheating." They probably engaged the manual transmission without realizing it and don't realize they're driving their car in 1st gear. It's only a 4 cylinder engine, but it gets up to 80mph in a hurry. It's fine. I've read some reviews that criticize the weak pickup of the engine, I'm not sure these people understand its a 4 cylinder carrying an SUV body, it's not an V8 engine, lol. Nonetheless, the engine is fine (though I haven't had it packed full of stuff, nor have i towed anything with it). The ride is smooth, quiet, and comfortable. I'm 6'3'' 200lbs. Plenty of leg room. Also, It is the only car, other Jeeps included, that my head or hair does not touch the roof. I do not have to slouch. That's awesome if you're a tall person. Gas milage is fine. I drove 160 miles (all highway) on a half a tank, so that's over 300 miles on a full tank. I believe it holds 13 gallons and costs somewhere around $30 to fill. The windshield is gigantic. You have a lot of windshield vision as well as passenger front and back window vision. Driver side rear window vision is spotty. Just be careful switching lanes. I love this Jeep. It's basic, yet it also has enough features to make it a very enjoyable experience.

Love JEEP! I have owned 3 JEEP SUV s in 12 years.

Despite of what some people say negatively about JEEPS... in my opinion (JEEP) It is one of the best built vehicles that is made America today. I have owned Ford, Chevy, Mazda and Pontiac, (all American made vehicles) ALL BAD EXPERIENCES. (JEEP) in the other hand, without a doubt has being the best SUV s vehicles I have ever owned 'till today. My first brand new JEEP i bought, is a "2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo" still own it, still running strong and like a charm. With very little mechanical issues, "if any?" My second brand new SUV I bought, is a "2006 Jeep Commander" still own it, and has no relative major issues to complain about. Both Jeeps I have bought in 10-16 years, have out performed any other American made vehicles that I owned in the past. Every non Jeep vehicle I have ever owned, gave me lots of trouble after reaching the 50,000k mile range. The two Jeeps I own, both have over 170K miles on them, and they are still running very strong. My newest addition to my JEEP collection is the 2016 Jeep Patriot High Altitude Edition SUV. I have just acquired it from Gray Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of the Poconos in Stroudsburg, PA. And so far; I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS VEHICLE. It has all the bells and whistles I ever wanted, and more. ((And Sure! When Compared to my '04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, or my '06 Jeep Commander, it is in another lesser power category. It is not in the same league "I do admit". But. It is by far the best vehicle, when compared to any other brand new vehicle of its class and price range. I personally will continue to stand behind JEEP; as long the vehicles I come to own from Jeep "continue to perform as my good as my first two have done so far. My honest advice to anyone considering in purchasing a new vehicle... Try Jeep first before considering any other vehicles. Jeep is a good brand, they continue to make, and have made some of America's toughest and most reliable vehicles for decades.

Great vehicle for money! It's all relative

I was looking for a no nonsense, good economy, versatile vehicle with a lower repair cost down the road and less "systems" to break. I got just what I was shopping for. For the money, this vehicle is a great bargain! I traded in my 2006 Cadillac and I could not be more pleased. I prepared myself for a huge sacrifice in comfort and I just have not experienced it. It is lighter of course, but I am getting almost 15 miles to the gallon more with the jeep. Surprisingly enough, the jeep is as quite at high speeds as the caddy was, that shocked me. Another thing I really like about the patriot is the large front windshield. It is forward and extremely large for the size of the vehicle. Great visibility all around. I read reviews and heard that there was a problem in the past with some kind of water leak. I have not experienced that with my vehicle. I am happy with my purchase and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to my friends and family.

Sweet little Jeep

I own a 2002 Grand Cherokee with 200K miles. We thought it time to upgrade due to to the high miles. The Patriot caught my eye. After a strenuous mountain test drive I found it drove and handled great. I love the paddle-shift 6-speed for coming down mountains. Handling, traction and control are great. We live deep in the Appalachians and going anywhere is "over the mountain". So far, we haven't driven on snow but I expect it will do very well with the front-wheel, four-wheel combination. My old Crown Vic got better highway mileage, but for a mid-size SUV it isn't bad. The 13-gal tank could be bigger for longer road trips. This car has no power seats but we are now used to it. Visibility is excellent. The 2.4 L engine has plenty of power and good acceleration. And the down-shifting when you let off the gas is excellent saving the brakes. For that matter, people ride their brakes excessively, anyway, and are annoying to follow up and down the hills and around tight curves. Though I have reservations about its durability it is, so far, an excellent 4X4 SUV. With winter just around the corner I will update you all on its snow and ice performance. As an auto and aircraft mechanic I find the Patriot well-engineered and solid. The reviews compare it to Japanese and European cars which are built for soft city folk who are tech-obsessed. If you want a practical, American 4X4, test drive the Patriot where there are steep terrain and sharp curves.

Just not good- CHEAP

I had this car as a rental and pulled over just to write this review. The whole car feels cheap. The center console is dated and the cup holder is far too low. No USB charging in a car made in 2016 tells me Jeep just doesn't care about keeping up with the times. However, by far the worst feature is the engine. The car is brutally slow and doesn't get anywhere near the claimed highway gas mileage. PASS ON THIS CAR.

Great value for simple, practical 4x4 SUV

It's not a Jeep in the off-road rock-crawling sense, it's more a Jeep in the simple, inexpensive 4x4 sense. It's amazingly unremarkable in every aspect, but yet it's remarkable in how many aspects are good enough, especially for the price. It's exactly the right size, has decent gas mileage for it's cargo and off-road capacity, and it's comfortable and easy to get in and out of. There's about as much room for those riding in back as there is up front. It's not particularly fun to drive (like the first-generation Liberty was), but it doesn't feel too slow either. What is different about this car is that when you let off the gas it will engine brake and downshift so you -will- slow down, which would be great in the winter (the Suburban I had would coast forever under its own incredible momentum). My Jeep came with A/C but no nav screen, sunroof (not recommended due to leaks), power windows/locks, or remote start. This is deliberate as in every car I or anyone else has ever owned the gizmos are the first thing to break and the last thing to get fixed. Overall I think the layout of the controls and gauges is excellent although I would have liked to see a little bit larger numbers on the speedometer. I love the chunky steering wheel and it's as good or better than any in any other car I've ever driven. The only knob or button that felt cheap to me was the window crank, but even that's not bad. Overall build quality is decent; the hood and fenders are solid but the doors feel a little cheap. Everything inside the car seems fine as can be expected in this price range. I would have liked for it to have had the tow hitch receiver and tow hooks, I would have liked it to have been dark blue (dealers in this area are clearly colorblind as they only order black or grey). The only real bummer about this vehicle is that for a Jeep it has very little aftermarket even though I think it has some good potential.

I Loooove my 2016 Jeep Patriot

I owned a Jeep years ago and loved the space and the feel of a jeep. And now here I am again! I have exactly what I wanted with space, entertainment and look all in one beautiful Jeep. It handles the road great and if I would have read the reviews first I may have changed my mind but I'm VERY pleased I purchased and then read them. I am one satisfied owner :-)

I have the very base Patriot model from 2016 with manual transmission, manual windows and manual locks. Conversely, it has air conditioning (much needed this summer), bluetooth technology and Sirius XM radio. I have received several compliments from others about the appearance of my new SUV and have been very impressed with its performance thus far. I was able to get a fair price from a dealer that is willing to go the "extra mile" for customer satisfaction. I am a satisfied customer! I have been driving it daily since I bought it in mid-July and have not encountered any of the problems I read about on the web. I also like the extra space in the vehicle by its intentional design. I am very appreciative there is a manufacturer still willing to make an affordable 5 speed manual transmission for an SUV. Well done.

Professional car reviewers are worthless

It's a Jeep. I bought a 2016 and I really like it. I have owned a lot of new cars, I buy them for myself , my wife and my son. If you read the reviews you would think it is a terrible vehicle. But I test drive cars myself and I don't listen to what car snobs have to say. If you option it properly it is an unbelievable value. First, I bought a Sport with Freedom Dive 1 and the 2.4L motor with the 6 speed auto. This trim is not included in the drop down list for some reason. So my final cost was under 17K with discounts and rebates ( before taxes and license)- for a 4WD SUV. The interior is pretty basic but the seats are comfortable and the appearance is nice overall, I love the dash and the gauges. The visibility is great and I feel comfortable maneuvering in traffic. It has Blue tooth, AC , and a year of free satellite radio. Cargo capacity is really good. Steering in well connected and ride is pleasant. The motor is quiet but does transmit some vibration at idle, I don't really mind it as it is a minor issue. My last three cars were a BMW128 convertible, a Chevrolet Volt, and Jetta TDI. I have to say I like this one as much as the others. Apparently I am not alone as they sell a lot of them. As a last note my wife, who leases a new Range Rover Evoque. Drives it every chance she gets -

The 2016 Patriot is a decent value. Don't rely solely on professional reviews, drive one yourself. What you get: 4WD, air conditioning, satellite radio,roof rack, auto dimming rear view mirror and Bluetooth for $17,000. For that price it comes with steel wheels, manual locks, windows, side view mirrors and a manual 5-spd transmission. I chose Jeep because it let me pay for features I value instead of having to pay for automatic conveniences that I don't need. The seats are comfortable, the heat and A/C work great, the transmission shifts just fine for a non-performance application and highway mileage tops 30 mpg. The sound system is more than adequate (for a middle aged man). Seriously , how much volume does one need for Fox Business? Jeep lowered its powertrain warranty to 3 years/36,000 miles. Resale value is soft for the manual trans models. Crash test scores aren't impressive. I like driving the 5-spd manual and appreciate the hill assist feature. A decent vehicle for the money.

LOVE MY NEW JEEP PATRIOT

I own a Chrysler 300 AWD and a Ram 1500 Tradesman RWD truck. I bought the Jeep Patriot with a five speed manual because my wife and I wanted another Jeep, and the sale price of this Patriot 4WD was never to be repeated... under $18000 new, with air. I love the manual transmission, brings back memories from my younger years. My wife loves the ride and seating so much that we often leave the 300 at home when we go out together. The machine is fun to drive, surprisingly quiet for a jeep, and reasonable on gas. My reason for a four star rating is not because of any disappointment or fault found in the vehicle... other than the lack of telescoping steering... I was rating it according to looks, style, and appearance of similarly priced SUV's on the market today. For me, I love the older look, the manual crank windows and manual locks, and all the other stuff that I wanted to have when I was a youngling but couldn't afford to buy a jeep then. If you're looking for a fun machine that you can take out for a cruise, fight a sudden snow squall in, or drive along a sandy beach or wooded field on occasion, then I recommend the Patriot.

Not a Long Road Trip Vehicle

Drove this over 1,200 miles inside 3 days, mostly on the interstate. The base model has some of the worst seats I've ever experienced in any vehicle. If your waist is anything over 28" you'll be squirming to get out in two hours. There are two metal bars on the outer-side of the seat cushion that can be felt under about 1/2" of foam... very uncomfortable. The wind noise is incredible; turn the radio off and that's all you'll hear. And the smallish tank means you'll be hitting the gas station in around 300 miles... our low-fuel light went on at 271 miles from a full tank, averaging 70 MPH on the highway. If this is your terrain vehicle or around the town SUV then you'll be fine. If you plan a long road trip in this PLEASE do yourself a favor and spend more time in it then the typical 'round the block test drive from the dealership.

Excellent ride

I recently bought a High Altitude 4X4 2.4L and I love it. It's a no non-sense rugged vehicle with tons of room and headroom, handles all surfaces great, easy to drive and park and great olds school climate controls that I love. Front heated seats amazing and tons of room at the back seats together with lots of cargo space. The engine is strong -and a little noisy- but it's very fun to drive! The professional reviews this car is getting are non-sense -otherwise the car wouldn't sell that well! Never had a mechanical or electrical issue or any issue whatsoever. Fuel consumption could have been better, but hey, you're buying a Jeep, not a Toyota! The bluetooth works great and the speakers sound much better than one would think for the price. And you get plugs! Real plugs, like the ones at home! Highly recommended!

Classic Jeep lines!

The Patriot feels solid and well built. I have no problem reaching freeway speeds or traveling over the mountain passes in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It has very comfortable front seating with excellent head and leg room. I opted for the air conditioning and the Power Value Group which includes; Body Color Door Handles, Illuminated Entry, Speed Sensitive Power Locks, Keyless Entry, Automatic Headlamps, Power Heated Fold-Away Mirrors, Power Driver 1-Touch Windows, and Body Color Liftgate Applique. I was also able to negotiate a great price on this smaller SUV. Best value for your money in this segment of the SUV market.

I bought the Jeep Patriot sport se 4x4 model. I traded in my 2011 Grand Cherokee that had 140,000 miles on it. The fact that I can drive a 4x4 suv worry free from repair costs, is quite comforting. As I was still making payments on Grand Cherokee and repairs would come out of my pocket. Now as for the patriot, it ain't no Cherokee, but its not intended to be! Overall I'm impressed with this package on the patriot, the extra attention to details, heated seats, trim accents, etc. Ride quality is good, tolerable road noise, front seats excellent, easy to park, perfect vehicle to zip around town in. A few nit picks I do have is, the lower entrance height, and the lower height of roof area when back hatch is lifted up. I tend to smack my head on these as I'm 6ft tall. Just need to get used to it and be careful. The only real problem I have so far is the absurd location of the usb port. It's not on the radio, not even in center console area, its in the GLOVEBOX! Really?! Its almost impossible to find, even in there. The dealer couldn't even locate it. It is above the opening of the glovebox, up into the dash area. You need to blindly reach up and feel around for it. I have no clue how this is a useful spot to mount this. To use it, you need to drive around with glovebox open and place phone either in glovebox or above on small shelf built into dash. Horrible design on this! This will be my 3rd Jeep and I hope to get years and years of use from it.

I LOVE MY 2016 PATRIOT

Do understand the bad reviews...I had a RAVE4...which was an excellent car...NO REPAIRS AT ALL after 11years. But the Patriot blows it away in comfort, space, and quality of interior. The top of doors are padded, the dosh controls are easiest to navigate of ANY vehicle I ever had. The dash board is flat and hold a cell phone holder easily without blocking vision. There is an actual SHELF in it as well ...for a GPS, tablet, kleenex, sunglasses, etc.This is my first Jeep also. There is alot of head and leg-room, even for my 6" husband. I have the High Altitude Pkg...I love the leather seats and interior . I have a Mastiff and the hair doesn't stick at all. He has PLENTY of room in the back seat. There are 3 ports for charging things, there is an actual PLUG..like in your house, for shaver, coffee warmer, night-light or whatever! It is NOT the fastest thing ..nothing like my Camaro. But it isn't that kind of car. Its for kids, dogs, baggage, toys and activities. Who wants a race car for that? It handles the road , water, ice and snow GREAT...it has front drive. The 430 Sirius radio is excellent too. The gear shifter itself could be smoother...but who cares? It has a VERY smooth ride....turns, stears and breaks fabulously. It has more storage space and little cubbies for stuff all over the place. NO OTHER suv I tried had any. That is very important when your a woman...lots of things you need at hand. As far as the engine reviews, I dont know much about that. The gas mileage is good. The comfort of the seats cant be beat. The driver seat raises...I sit about 4-5" higher than the passenger seat...so I have great vision as well. Just thought I would mention these things...The patriot seems to get an undeseved bas wrap! If you want a COMFORTABL versital vehicle ...and you spend alot of time driving...you will love the Patriot!

Dies while driving no warning

Today, may 26 2016,I just pulled out onto the road during rush hour and suddenly with no warning the brake felt funny beneath my foot. The steering wheel seemed like it wasn't on or working. The car then completely dies. The car had no indication lights of a possible issue. The car was not over heated. I ended up blocking two lanes because I was in mid turn of getting into the far left lane. I was shaken by this and had to call the police for help. The key would not allow me to turn it in the off position. I was literally stuck. After waiting five minutes I tried to turn the car on and it came on luckily! I am a new driver, this is my first car and I have never been so scared in my life hat someone was going to hit me from the side or behind. I took the car into the dealership to get looked at. I am without a car while they look at it. I since saw many reviews saying their heels in various models and years have done this too. I hope the issue is fixed by the end of the weekend but it was scary. Overall I love my car but wow that was horrible.

I just bought a 2016 Jeep Patriot Sport to replace my 2010 Patriot Sport that I totaled in an accident (my 1st in 37 years of driving) The 2010 held up surprisingly well in the accident and I was not injured; and since I was so happy with the 2010 overall, I decided to replace it with a new Patriot. I upgraded a little, going with the automatic 6-speed transmission, but other than that and the fact that the 2016 clearly has more ground clearance than did the 2010 (which I thought had poor ground clearance) It feels about the same driving and comfort wise. The bottom line with me though is that is that I was able to get BOTH the 2010, and the 2016 for under 20k dollars. And these days, a 4WD vehicle at that price is pretty rare. If the new one is anything like the old one - which only had one minor warranty-covered repair in six years of ownership - I may wind up writing another review someday when I buy what will then be my third Patriot

The sound system in this vehicle is comparable to my first car, 1975 cutlass supreme! Absolutely awful, the most generic sound system I have heard, and I have a 2016! I will never lease or buy another jeep product, so so disappointed!

I love My Jeep. I purchased a 2016 Fully loaded Jeep Patriot for a great affordable price. I am a single mom with 2 daughters. Lugging around all of there dance, cheer, Snowboards, Friends etc has been hassle free. Plenty of room for everything & still not cramped. Love the Lumbar support & Heated seats. Moon Roof, Sirius XM radio, Remote Start & 4 wheel drive are all pluses. The only thing I wish it had was a back up camera. Easy to drive.

I'm in love

The Jeep Patriot is a great purchase - a great combination of all factors we needed to take into account. Mileage is okay; room is quite spacious. The big key for us was to have a second vehicle that handles the snow pretty well. We had a Jeep Wrangler for years. We live in the hills in Kentucky and when it snows heavily the roads are not well kept so we need something that can handle deep snow, slippery conditions, and can handle peaks/valleys/curves in heavy snow. The Patriot FDII WIth Low Gear is just like owning a manual transmission in the snow in the hills. The low gear reduces speed (you can shift from D to L as you go down a hill) and never go higher than 3-4 mph without touching the brakes. And when going up hills in the snow, it doesnt even slip. And now we have a vehicle that can pull our trailer, get decent gas mileage and have a vehicle that is easy to drive in all conditions. It's been a great purchase! The expert reviews are not high on the Patriot (doesnt have a lot of fancy bells/whistles - technology) but the owner reviews are usually pretty positive. Very reliable/dependable and good purchase for its price.

Nice car nomatter what anyone says

Had the liberty but they stop making it, so we bought the Patriot. At first didn't think I would like it but the 2.4L engine is really a great performer. The car has a solid ride and we like the window configuration that gives you an all around view. The interesting thing is that people who own the car give it a great review, but the professionals who review it give it a thumb down. The traction control really gives it a hugging the road drive, this is a great car for the money, I bought it because I didn't want car payments and bought it in cash. Car has everything I need, leather, heated seats, sun roof, remote start and electric driver seat.

what's not to like for $17K - $28K ?

Look, you're not buying a top of the line Lexus or Acura. If you've got 21K to spend on a comfortable, modern ride with the classic Jeep styling, THIS IS IT! This is the most economical SUV on the market. For 21K (Latitude 6 speed) it's far superior to my previous purchase of a 25K bottom of the line KIA Sorrento. It is more comfortable, more head room and doesn't flop all over the road like the KIA.

My husband and I just bought our Patriot on Tuesday 01/19/16. We live in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. Our purpose for purchasing a 4x4 was for me to be able to get off our mountain ridge to make it to work. Our Jeep Cherokee is a freaking mountain goat so we decided to look at the Jeep product line again. We chose the Patriot. Less than 24 hours after purchase I had to challenge this vehicle with the ice/snow obstacle course of our three switchbacks and it handled it with ease. I love the stability and especially love the Hill Start Assist. Looking forward to the next snow storm.

Best $20K SUV on the Market. Nothing comes close

Best $20K SUV on the Market. Nothing comes close in this price range. Classic Jeep style. Remember when all Jeep models had round headlamps. The Wrangler and Patriot are the only models left true to the brand.

Love My New Patriot!

Wow this small sized suv is comfortable to drive and handles well. Quick accelerating I purchased the 2.4 liter 16 valve and so far it's an amazing suv. I really recommend taking a test drive for yourself I was so glad I did. Plenty of room seats are comfortable the warranty is amazing jeep did well on this one.

LOVE THIS SUV

I have never owned a Jeep product. I always stuck with Honda or Toyota. This vehicle tops all of those. The head room and leg room is wonderful, I am 5'9 and I have lots of room.

Best bang for the buck!

Value, value, value! I bought a 2016 base model (stick, 4 banger, no electric windows, etc.) in Green. $12,999 ... less than $15k out the door! As soon as I test drove it, there was no question in my mind. Great value, at lower price than comparable USED vehicles. Thank you South County Chrysler Jeep in Gilroy, CA

Nice car for the money

I paid $18,500 for the manual 4wd sport version. I opted for the all weather capability package and the 3 tow hooks look great on the bumper. I also got A/C . Nice car for the money. The cheapest Patriot is only $3000 more than the cheapest car in America ( Nissan Versa) . I got the Patriot in Eco Green and it really stands out. All I ever see is black,white red or blue Patriots . Eco Green looks really nice. The Patriot has a silky smooth manual transmission and shifts really well. The critics say the Patriot is underpowered. I get more power with manual. The manual version cost $6000 less than the automatic version. Glad I learned how to drive manual ! I would never pay $6000 extra to get the automatic version. It's not worth it. The interior is really nice. Nothing fancy. Lots of plastic and that's good. It'll last. The seats are comfortable and adjust well . The windows are kind of small and visability is reduced somewhat. I'll get use to that. The version I got has crank windows and manual locks. I hate automatic windows because you have to turn the key to make them work when the engine is off. With AC , how many times do you open windows ? Just another thing that might break down. The instrument panel looks really nice and the steering is great . The car drives really well and there's no rattles when you drive on rough roads. I got all weather mats with the All weather capability option. The mats are so so . I thought the mats would cover the whole floor area . These mats are cheap. The tow hooks are definatly worth it. It looks really Jeep . Every Jeep should come with tow hooks. Plenty of headroom ! I'm 6 foot six and the roof is 3 inchs above my head. Leg room is good in the front. If the front seats are all the way back I can still squeeze into the back seat if I spread my legs to each side of the seat. A shorter family will do just fine. My only complaints , Chrysler changed the powertrain warranty . The 2015 model had 5 years/100,000, the 2016 model has 5 years/60,000 . That change irritated me. I expected 5 years /100,000 miles. Also , the instrument panel is hard to read at night if you have poor eye sight. The numbers should be easier to read for older people. I don't wanna put on my reading glasses when I'm driving. Glad I bought the Jeep Patriot.
