I purchased my 2010 patriot sport in November of 2010 with about 13k on it. it was a rental vehicle. i have put 90k on it in 5 years. this is the best vehicle i have ever owned. i regret not upgrading to leather seats, sunroof, etc. but i'd buy another patriot without hesitation. my dad owns a repair shop that my brother works at and now partially owns. we were raised with GM vehicles. my 05 equinox was the absolute worst vehicle i ever owned. it's so refreshing to have my patriot. i've had only to do the normal maintenance work on it. brakes, tires and some suspension stuff along with the scheduled services. i would recommend this vehicle to anybody. it certainly isn't as fun to bang on as my boyfriend's hemi grand cherokee but i love my patriot and have no plans on getting a new vehicle anytime soon.

Do yourself a favor and DO NOT BUY a Jeep Patriot

I usually buy cars/SUVs/pickups and drive them into until the wheels fall off. I like having at least 2 years without a car payment to really get my money's worth. I bought my Jeep Patriot with 15,000 miles on it and ran well for a year. From then on it has been mechanically unreliable. When I began having trouble with it, I looked up problems and found many other owners of Jeep Patriots with the same issues I was having. We live out away from any large city, so we drive a lot of highway miles. Very little stop and go traffic. COMMON MECHANICAL ISSUES: 1) Alternator will break down at 90K to 95K 2) Transmission will start to overheat (that's right, I said Transmission) at around 45K. Talking to the Jeep/Chrysler mechanics, the recommended transmission service for the Jeep Patriot is every 30k. To service a Jeep Patriot transmission, the mechanic has to drop the transmission. There are no drain plugs and no transmission dip sticks. INSANE! 3) Even if you do your transmission service every 30K, it makes a whining sound when it gets over 45K. Fortunately I was under warranty when my transmission went out and got a new one. The new one still whines. By the way, the transmission went out while I was away on work and my wife and two kids were driving. 4) To change any of the front lights, you have to remove the wheels on the front. Then remove the wheel well covers. Even then, it is a tight fit for medium hands. 5) To get to any moving part in the engine you have to have a lift and have professional tools to work on it. Pros 1) Cost of the vehicle 2) The sound system is very good. You can listen to great music quality while you are broke down on the side of the road waiting for a wrecker.

Beautiful modern design in & out but quality of materials very cheap & features very basic, the bumpers can't take a hit for nothing. As a teen I shoved multiple friends in this car & took many road trips racking up 65k miles in 2 yrs still it performed amazingly, the seats are pretty comfortable especially the back seats & it has an amazing standard sound system! I ultimately had a tire blowout, due to negligence, at 60mph on a slippery, empty highway & crashed 3 times very hard totaling my baby but noone in the car even had whiplash due to the active head-restraints that activate during a crash. Besides a rust problem with the driver door & trunk door hinge this car was a great first!

I bought my Patriot new. It came w/ CVT which takes some time to get used to, but once you manage it, it's a great feature. I liked the selection of trims. You can get bone stock w/ no AC to a fully loaded Limited. I picked a package that fit my needs which includes power locks, mirrors, windows, AC and cruise control. Folding rear and passenger seats provide tons of space to carry oversized items. It has best fuel economy in its class. Depending on the trim you choose, you can get 30+ mpg hwy. Great vehicle for any outdoor adventures! However, it is known for weak/cheap front suspension components which go bad at around 40k+ miles and water leaks.

I have the Sport 2.0 L with the 5 speed manual and have had great results. The editors of all the car magazines don't like this car, but they compare it to cars that cost $15K more. This is an excellent working person's car, great mileage in town, and enough engine for highway cruising. In 4th gear it climbs long hills at 55 without any problem. My insurance rate went down by $20 a month because of this car's great safety features. And if you're a big guy like me, it has a lot of room. One caveat, I got the manual transmission because Chrysler seems to have a hard time making a decent automatic transmission, but I like the feel of the manual. One practical vehicle.

For $$$$ you cant beat it!

I bought this Patriot new, it is a base model no a/c, no power anything, but I only paid 14K out the door. So for the money I could not be Happier. Great performance (for a 4cyl) even better gas milleage. It may not have the creature comforts but it comes stock with all the safety features that the top models have including the tire pressure monitor and canopy airbags. The best part is it still has a cd player with AUX input for ipod and tinted windows. So once again for the money I challenge anyone to find a better SUV. BUY AMERICAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not a bad first vehicle but still on the fence...

I purchased the 2.0 lt automatic with CVT and had similar complaints when driving a slow speeds. The transmission does seem to kick when decelerating and re-accelerating around 10-15 MPH. Also, I have less than 10k on it and occasionally have a hesitation when trying to start it up. Cold days around 30-40 degrees seem worst and when parked on any type of hill... The stereo is awesome for the money and the aux input is great to have. Would have appreciated another power outlet but one is alright. Rear suspension is beginning to squeak. The controls for temp are cheap don't always seem to get in the right spot for the setting. For the money, not a bad SUV but feels cheap.

I traded a 2009 Sentra SR on this great Jeep. So far, I have been very pleased. It feels big and safe, It is quiet and smooth, the engine is a tad noisy when cold, but when up to operating temperature, it's fine. This is my first Jeep and the quality of the interior, paint, and fit/finish is FAR better than the Sentra. The CVT is much better too, the Sentra moaned. I love the ride, ride height, adjustable seat, interior color and wheels. It is a very good-looking vehicle. I think of it more as a wagon than an SUV, MPG was 26 on last trip. I would hope it gets better as the motor breaks in. I enjoy the heated seats, Satellite radio, and Remote start! I hope to have this one a long time!

I have never been so sorry I purchased a vehicle before. I've owned dozens of vehicles but this is the worst. I test drove it warmed up and in the summer. When it is cold the CVT transmission jerks, and the engine sounds like my lawn tractor. Interior is cheap and is starting to makes numerous squeaks. Chrysler basically told me,(paraphrasing) that "we know that we cut some corners but we will fix it in future model years". My recommendation get something else.

I went looking for a small, 4wd SUV. On line shopping and reviews are quite helpful, unless they are strongly opinionated, then I just gloss over the review. When comparing equipment on others in this class, nothing comes close for cost verses content. The sport model with the $5000 latitude package stickered at $23,500. Less rebates etc. (and this gives you everything from heated seats to remote start. Overall very satisfied, 2.4 with the CVT trans is getting 20 mpg in town/27 highway. Buld quality/ paint and all seem very good. Engine can sound noisy, not at cruising speed tho, so it does not annoy me. Fast, nope, not bought for speed, but tap shift to highway speeds are no problem.

The patriot is inexpensive but you get what you pay for. The CVT has a horrible jerk, so-called engine braking, at low speed, and the four cylinder sounds like a diesel until it gets warmed up. Jeep says the jerking is "normal" and they are not working on fix. Good cheap transportation but don't expect a refined ride.

Great value in a four wheel drive. Getting 26 miles per gallon on an easy commute. Very comfortable and the controls are easy to use. It is a much better build than I expected and so far rattle free. CVT takes some getting used to, especially the low speed braking. But to get the power they get out of a four cylinder the CVT works great.

We traded in our 2005 Grand Cherokee. The Patriot gets much better mileage. We took it 450 miles on vacation a week after we bought it and averaged about 27 mpg with the automatic transmission. Classic Jeep styling and great handling. It has a very tight turning radius. Fun to drive. There is some noise when accelerating but it is not unpleasant and tapers off when up to speed. 2.4 engine has adequate power. Basic model doesn't come with many thrills but I consider this a plus as you can tailor this vehicle to suit your preferences with the large selection of options available. Don't listen to the so called "expert" reviews, drive one yourself and see what you think.

This is the only family car you will find under $20K, gets 39 MPG highway even though rating is 25, and that fits a 6'3" teenager behind a 5'10" adult. Very impressive response from the 2.4 L and CVT. I like it. So does the wife. It will be her primary vehicle. More room and better fuel economy than our 1999 Cherokee. I would have no problem recommending this to anyone.

I decided to purchase the car because of the style and Jeep name. I received a 3K rebate and was so happy. I had ignored the first Edmunds review re: cheap interior. Car drove fine first few days when I noticed I was low on gas. This continued where I was filling up twice weekly and barely getting 20mpg. My tank would only hold 10 gallons. No one believes this and now I have to go to the dealer to check this out. After reading another review, I now believe this is a malfunctioning fuel gauge. After my purchase I see that Edmunds has updated with a more scathing review of the Patriot. I wish I had read that one prior to purchase. Buyers remorse? You betcha!

This is my 2nd Patriot. I bought my first in 7/07 brand new. I loved the classic Cherokee body style. It is also the roomiest SUV with the best MPG at the best price. I couldn't resist buying a new one and I couldn't see myself driving anything else. I love my Patriot and as long as they keep making it I will keep buying it!

I purchased an optic green sport model with 4x4 and FDI.Just broke first 1000 miles.I love a new updated interior with illuminated cup holders,more comfortable headrests and round chrome accent air vents.Our adventure didn't start the way I expected from a brand new vehicle.I had to wait 10 days for a dealership to fix an A/C line that was leaking freon that had to be ordered from factory in Detroit.Other than that,this is a great vehicle for its price.I love autostick option, very handy when driving on mountain roads.There is not that much of a road noise as described by editors.Turning radius is great so as maneuvering.Even though the interior is all plastic but it's pretty durable.

To those interested in a fun to drive SUV, look no further. After looking at many SUVs, the Jeep Patriot was the best deal, and had the most options for the money! After test driving the automatic CVT version, I chose the 5 speed manual. I like to shift gears, but also found the engine to me more quiet. It has a very smooth, quiet ride, and the interior is very comfortable. With its SUN AND SOUND PACKAGE, you get 9 speakers that are awesome, SIRIUS, and sunroof. Heated seats,mirrors,premium stain resistant cloth, are just a few of the neat options. The negative review by EDMUNDS is simply not true. go see for yourself. The reviews from other owners also prove this SUV is loved/fun!

I bought a new Jeep Patriot in June on 2009. After owing it for only 6 months I was involved in a head on collision with another lager SUV at a combined speed of over 100 mph. My boyfriend and I walked away from the accident with only mild injuries compared to the severity of the accident. My Jeep was totaled, but I think that it preformed remarkably well under the conditions. The EMT's at the crash and my doctor in the ER both said that it was amazing that we were not hurt worse or dead. When all was said and done I purchased another Jeep Patriot to replace my 09' as I felt very safe in this car after our accident. I would recommend the Jeep Patriot to anyone.

My Patriot has been in the shop 9 times since purchased just 6 months ago. Everything from malfunctioning wipers, washers, fuel gauge, flashing Traction Control light, loose half shaft, missing brake caliper bolts, faulty motor mounts, rusted door hinge, and now have "hiss" when I go over bumps (sounds like air leak?) and brakes squeal in reverse. I am fed up! Hope to return this and buy something else - not another Patriot!

I bought a silver Latitude Edition with CVT. Came with Sun and Sound group, Alloys with Firestone tires, foglights, heated seats, and touch screen multimedia display. The SUV gets good mpg, excellent ride/handling, extremely cold A/C, and has enough cargo space for vacations. Overall, this is a quality, well priced vehicle that you should consider when in the market for an SUV.

The best bang for you buck!

This is the best vehicle I've ever owned. I've owned cars, suvs and this really fits me perfectly at 6'. I can't believe Edmunds gave it bad reviews. There is no engine noise, rides smoothly, extremely comfortable. The best your money will buy. I can't stress enough to go drive one and listen to consumer reviews instead of professional reviews. They don't get the budget and are constantly driving all types of vehicles: expensive ones too. They say it's all relative - well it is. For the money, this is an amazing vehicle. Don't listen to me, drive one. I'm a real consumer. I just got my sport 4x4 with sun and sound package and all the accessories. You will truly love it - go American!

This is a great jeep product. I have manual transmission, 4X4 FDI drive model. It drives great, engine is very responsive (manual transmission), 4X4 is great just like i would expect from jeep. Hwy fuel economy is 29-30 and in town 23-25, of course it will be different for automatic. freedom drive I an Awd/4wd drive system which detects traction loss under normal driving conditions and transfers torque to where it is needed and 4wd system is 50-50 system for light offroading , if you are a serious off-roader then consider FDII or even better wrangler.

I was hesitant to buy this model because of the negative reviews. I test drove the Subaru Forrester because it was so highly rated. It was an Ok ride, but it just felt like I was driving a nice car not an SUV. As soon as I got behind the wheel of this Patriot I knew it was the vehicle for me. That is one solid vehicle! Holds the rode well and stops on a dime. I wanted a vehicle that was tough, durable and will get me around in the snow. I found it. I did not get a lot of fancy options because they are not important to me. This is basic model, no frills. It's a Jeep for goodness sake! I got mine for about $21K after rebate. Not a bad price for a 4 wheel drive vehicle IMO.

Love this Jeep!

This baby hugs the curves well on my mountain highway, with a little boost from the CVT on steep side roads. It's quiet and comfortable; the heater clears all the windows well, and air circulation keeps it all fresh. There's plenty of room (and little nooks) to stash gear, tools, shopping bags. My neighbors all complimented the appearance, too!

Went from Avalanche to Patriot, nice, comfortable, caught my eye once I realized I wanted some toys over size. It is easy to drive, awesome stereo, way better than expected. A little road noisy accelerating, but once to speed, quiets down to normal. Turning radius is pretty good, haven't tried everything yet. Very happy with my choice, as I was shopping for a Liberty. Definitely worth considering for new family, not intended for real tall people however, there is sufficient head room

The Patriot blew the Escape out of the water!! More giddy up and A LOT more comfortable. Also had a nicer interior and even better, a couple thousand dollars cheaper!!

The Jeep Patriot is by far the best automobile purchase I have ever made. For the price, I am getting much more than I paid for the vehicle. The seats are very comfortable; I love the chrome details on the dash and other interior components; the stereo system is top notch, and, contrary to the model review, the engine is quiet and hums along at a steady pace, giving me an unheard of 30 mpg. I was not looking for a large SUV - I wanted better mileage than it would offer - so I am pleased with the cargo space and especially appreciate the rear 60/40 seat split for carting around furniture, snowboards, bikes, and even my Dalmatian.

I just bought this vehicle with the 2.0 4 Cyl. and so my mileage is 32-34 highway, a drastic improvement from my 2002 Ford E150 Conversion van. Great headroom and interior space plus high safety marks made my decision between a Acion, Chevy HHR, Chrysler PT Cruiser and Jepp Compass. A real blast to drive and very comfy. I was impressed with features with a cheaper price than the Chevy HHR and a ton mor room, including headroom. I folded down the seats and carried two end tables, two 25" t.v. sets, and a small dresser.Good cargo space with seats down. Sun roof and Sirius/XM radio add to joy and the nine speaker system is plenty loud and clear.Lot of little extras make this the winner for me.
