Over all we love it, not one issue in 32,000 miles. We do tow a pop up camper with it too from time to time with no issues. I only wish that it was bigger & 7 passenger... For the money it was the "poshest" AWD wagon we could find, loaded with very nice leather seating and power goodies & a moonroof. I would certainly buy another one. I do think that a 3 year/ 36,000 mile warranty is a bit lame though, come on FCA... when Hyundai can offer a 100,000 mile warranty, it seems pretty crappy to only offer 3/36K on your cars.

HUGE disappointment! !!!!

I purchased my 2015 patriot sport 6 weeks ago with only 4k miles on it . Now I know why. Major engine and transmission problems. It doesn't want to shift properly and doesn't wanna go. I was almost rear ended because the engine started racing, the RPMS were in the danger zone and it didn't want to excellerate, it literally just wanted to stop in the middle of the road . It's in the shop and still waiting for the tech to call me back . Don't feel safe in this vehicle, and now that I Googled the issue I see other people have the same problem !!

Horrible waste of your money

Only a month after my fiancé drove it off the lot, she began having major issues. Front end issues, transmission issues and braking issues... took to the dealer 2 times before they would even take it in and look at it. Tie rods were ready to snap off at only 4000 miles! Vehicle does not see the interstate anymore because you can't even get up to 50mph before ramp ends causing a huge safety issues... all problems addressed to jeep (fca us llc) and it was a laughing matter to them... they claim issues arent actual issues and are normal for new vehicles... as an ase certified tech I can diagnose many issues and gave in detail the problems and was still shrugged off. Now in the process of lemon law which now jeep wants to try and make things right after 9 months of constant complaints.Do your research before buying a used one as fca us llc tries to get you to opt out with taking a new vehicle or giving you cash settlement and keep the vehicle so it isn't listed as a lemon which then looses a lot of value at manufacturer expense.

I bought my jeep one year ago and put 12000 Miles on it. I was looking for a 4x4 vehicle under $20,000, the jeep patriot was the only new 4wd or awd vehicle I could find. With automatic and air I paid 19K out the door. I live in northern California and dive on dirt roads and in the snow. The jeep has excellent road feel for off road not the feel of a car made for the road with awd. I see the pro reviewers give the patriot low to average score but compare it to a cars that cost 10k more. I give the patriot 5 stars because it just gives the most bang for the buck, sure an awd car that cost 5K more has extra comfort on the road but the Patriot has adequate road comfort and is far superior off road. I have had no problems with the Patriot and my only complaint is the gas tank could be larger. I average about 21mpg and get 26mpg on long trips. If you drive an SUV in a big city the patriot is easy to park in small spaces and has an outstanding turn radius.

A lot of car for the money!

We traded for this new Jeep January 10, 2015 and left on a winter trip to Texas a month later 3000 miles round trip with four adults and a large car top carrier. The car performed well and the all wheel drive was really nice as we drove through a Kansas snow storm on the way home. I was concerned about trading in a 10 year old Subaru Forester with 187,000 miles that I loved, but after a test drive I felt the Jeep performed at least as well and the deal my dealer offered was really great. My experience with the Subaru service department was terrible (the only local dealer) so I was looking for a new service experience anyway. As it turns out I can't report on the Jeep service department as I have not needed to have the Jeep into the dealership for repair of any kind (I do my own oil changes and minor service). We just got back from our second winter trip to Port Aransas and averaged 23.5 mpg over 3100 miles. We now have 20,000 miles on the car and everything is working great. This little Jeep has been all we had hoped for, up to this point anyway. The only things I would change are to make the fuel tank larger for greater cruising range and mark the speedometer in 10 mph increments instead of 20 mph for easier reading at a glance. We are looking forward to many more years with this bargain SUV.

I <3 JEEPS!

Jeep has poor service when it comes to recalls. Have only 3700 and already has a recall on the vehicle. After seeing other reviews on here I think we will be trading it in and it won't be on any Chrysler product. Chrysler and their dealerships don't seem to care if your vehicle is fixed or not. They have a bad attitude and could care less if they fix your vehicle.

I bought mine in July and I have 13000 miles on it. I have made trips to Ohio, Virgina, and Georgia. It had some miles put on it and some wear and tear. I absolutely love this Jeep. It doesn't handle like a sports car but its not meant to be. I would recommend it to anyone with a family or just a couple. I will drive this until it dies

I mostly love my Patriot!

I really like this car. First off I will say I traded in a 4 door Wrangler Sahara with WAY more options and I am still satisfied. I have a 50 mile commute (one way) to work and the Patriot really is just a great value. I get decent gas mileage for the size of the car, the front seats are comfy, the AC/heat works great. It is a noisy rough ride, but it is also a budget car. The biggest complaint I have would be the sound quality from the base stereo, absolutely horrible ad the plasticy feeling of the interior panels. I popped some aftermarket speakers in and it is like a different car. The best thing about this car is the storage and how easy it is to drive, especially around the city. The seating position is great and it is very very easy to know the dimensions of this car, it is one of the only small suvs that still has a hood in sight when sitting in the drivers seat. I think the critics reviews of this car are very harsh but when you start to compare it to other cars in its price range, it really is the best you can buy.

I have had the vehicle 3 months and 3,300 miles. It has been in the shop 6 times for electrical system issues. The dash lights going on and off, the radio going on and off, the climate control vents not working and now the power windows not going up and down. This vehicle cost a lot of money and has been nothing but garbage. I see others have had similar issues online and in these review columns. Stay away from this vehicle. When reporting this under the lemon law they have said these issues were considered minor and not effecting the total vehicle operations and safety.

Great car

I have to say that I've been warned many times to stay away from Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep products due to quality concerns. You can find on many consumer websites that this concern is well founded, as this automaker appears at or near the bottom of a lot of reliability lists. I took a shot on the Jeep, since I found that the Patriot is Jeep's most reliable vehicle (about average relative to all other cars), I love the exterior styling and interior function, and the dealer gave me a great deal on the Altitude version that I wanted. Obviously you can see where this review is going... I have just made my second service appointment for the Jeep and I've had it less than two months. 500 miles into my ownership of this vehicle, the malfunction indicator lamp lit on my way home. I took it to the dealership and they cleared the code, stating that the code came up as a minor emissions leak, but they suspected a false positive. Another 500 miles or so later, and the light is back on. Now, this does appear to be a very minor issue, as the Patriot is driving great so far. However, no one wants to be subjected to multiple visits to the dealer immediately after purchase of a new car. Now that that unpleasantness is out of the way, I have to say that I do love the car. There is something analog and old school about it that is very enjoyable, now that it is basically the only choice for those who don't love the new, swoopy styling of almost all crossovers these days. The front seats are very comfortable and the UConnect radio works very well. The high seating position, boxy shape and square windows, as well as large side mirrors all lend to visibility being very good. As for power and the CVT, I don't drive aggressively, so I have had no problems so far. It's a very smooth ride. I can see where some drivers might want for some extra power, but for me, the trade-off for extra gas mileage is worth it. Speaking of which, I'm already averaging 26 to 27 MPG, which I think is very solid considering the boxy shape. It's nice to find a window sticker that displays mileage that is actually beatable, and not a pipe dream. So, overall, I guess the grade on the Patriot has to be an incomplete for now. I have it at 4 stars, but that review could change in either direction depending on overall reliability over the next few years. I do love it, but if I can't keep it out of the garage, I'll be forced to trade it in down the line. Which would be a shame, because there is a lot to love!

I got a deal

I got a 2015 Patriot Latitude. I think its great in all aspects except when it rains, it pours in the back dome light. Have had it in the dealership 4 times, fixing to be the fifth because of this. Its sooo frustrating because they say they can't narrow it down. So if you intend to buy one please go straight to car wash to make sure it doesn't happen to you!!!

2015 Jeep Patriot . Yes my 11th jeep I am 64 yrs. old. As a child was was fascinated by old military jeeps.My first jeep was a 1984 jeep Cherokee , I believe it's first year of production. And my latest 2015 Patriot. In between numerous Cherokees , Liberty and Grand Cherokee models! No major malfunctions. This current Patriot has just 4999 miles as of today. Many of my previous jeeps had excess of 200,000 plus miles when traded in. I am a happy customer!

First Jeep. Love it.

As many a reviews say, this car is about value and about being Jeep. I moved from Subaru legacy sedan that served me exceptionally well and with ZERO trouble for 7 years (car's age 10 years). I am an outdoors guy and love my camping trip and a bit of sofy-roading. I was split between Forester and Patriot. Few factors that swayed me to the Jeep - latest Forester has become just like all other cute-utes. Jeep stands out with is retro look. Secondly the value, features and dealer discounts. Lastly the ride height and SUV like suspension. I would have bought and XT but couldnt justify the cost. About 1000 kms on it. So far no issues. Mileage has been improving and currently at about 10L/100kms in mixed hwy and city. Great sound (and it is not the Boston Accoustics upgrade); remote start; leather trimmed seats; smooth shifting though slower to start from stop; ride comfort. Will watch for repair issues and resale. Hope it beats the Subaru I loved.

My Patriot Sport actually has the 2.4L 6-speed automatic FWD option, which was not one of the offerings in the review drop-down box. I previously owned a P/T Cruiser, which I loved and managed to keep for 13 years and my son is now driving. I play music as an avocation, which means needing enough cargo space to hold a band's worth of gear (except the drums). I live in a congested area, so I must have an automatic, and I live in a hot humid area, so I must have A/C. Everything else is extra. Knowing that someday I would need to replace the P/T Cruiser, I began researching affordable wagons several years ago. Most of the reviews on the Patriot at the time were that it was underpowered and too Spartan for most of the reviewers, but those were the same demerits the P/T Cruiser earned when it came out, so I was prepared to (a) dismiss those critiques and (b) settle for something less than sterling for the price the Patriot was asking. When I finally did a test-drive of the Patriot Sport with the optional 2.4L engine and 6-speed transmission, I was immediately pleasantly surprised with just about every aspect of the vehicle. Pickup and shifting are just fine for getting on and off the highway. The interior has no extras - manual door locks, manual/crank up windows, hand-adjusted mirrors - which is fine by me; I actually prefer not having more things to break and fix as the car ages. The seats a very comfortable; the materials used seem pretty standard - there was nothing glaringly cheap about any of it; and on the whole it seems well thought out and executed. The standard sound system needed a little tweaking to deliver a sound that pleases me, but I managed to dial it in within a few minutes. My Patriot came with a single CD player with satellite radio (free for one year), AM, FM, and a 1/8" jack to plug in an MP3 or other outboard music device. I have been driving the new Patriot for a month now. I have no complaints about its performance. The only change I would make if I were on the engineering team was to make the windows a little taller for better viewing (I must duck slightly to see the traffic light if I'm directly under it). I have not had it long enough to need service, so I cannot comment on that. But I've put on almost 1,000 miles, and have enjoyed a combined city/highway mileage of j27 mpg on regular gas. I couldn't be more pleased. I was prepared to settle for less.

First off, forget everything you just read!! The reviewers get their kick backs from the auto industry anyway. Was looking for a compact SUV/Crossover for the wife. Found this little gem and 7 months later, we couldn't be happier. We purchased the 2015 High Altitude Edition with 2.4 and 4 wheel drive (actually just transfers to AWD but jeep calls it 4X4). Main reason for purchase was price, but so much more to this vehicle. In FWD mode, we are getting 23/24 mpg in town and 28/30 highway mpg. I can't really tell you mpg in AWD because we rarely use it, even during the last Indiana winter. The FWD pulls the nibble, light weight body through almost anything on the road. While it is a compact SUV, the interior is very roomy. We have friends and family who own both the Ford Escape and the Honda CRV and they feel cramped in comparison to the Patriot. The heated leather seats are extremely comfortable and fit both our larger frames without feeling "wedged in". The cargo area is large. While it's Cubic volume may be smaller than some of it's competitors, due to it's shape, it will hold a lot of items and appears larger. As a matter of fact, my brother purchased the Cherokee and the Patriot cargo area is more useful and appears larger than it's big brother's. Let's talk about ride comfort. The Patriot is no Cadillac by any means, but we feel it has a smoother ride than any SUV/crossover we have owned/driven (GMC Jimmy, Toyota 4-runner, Ford Explorer, Dodge Journey)! While the interior is sparse, it is well thought out and very ergonomic to the driver. All controls are easily reached and simple to operate without distracting the drivers attention from the road. The handling is very responsive and doesn't have that sluggish feel as in some other vehicles in it's class. The 2.4 4 cylinder is not going to throw you back in your seat, but has more than enough power for interstate driving, actually you will surprised how easily and effortlessly the engine gets up to speed. As for the tranny, unlike the article states, the 2015 Patriot comes standard with a 6 speed transmission not the CVT. The CVT is an option, but you would be hard pressed to find one on the dealer's lot! For $21,000.00, out the door, we have a vehicle that has all the bells and whistles that would have cost us 10K more in any other vehicle. Do yourself a favor and go drive this vehicle before you buy into the crap written in this article! Options included for 21K purchase price, heated seats, leather seats, power sunroof, remote start, custom 17" rims, 2.4 liter with 6 speed automatic, 4 wheel drive (AWD transfer lock), leather wrapped steering wheel, and heated outside mirrors! Find that in a Ford or Honda and you'll pay upwards to 30K! Most of all, my wife loves it!

First all the "expert reviews" are way off base. Had to look at the Patriot because of all the incentives expecting to be underwhelmed. We feel we hit the jackpot. Engine power is strong. Transmission is smooth. The so called outdated interior is a breath of fresh air in simplicity. Was never that interested in the Patriot but a $28000 loaded 4x4 for under $23000 was too good to pass up. You should give it serious consideration.

incredible value

I'll start off by saying I was intending to buy a Subaru Crosstrek or Forester. I've always been a big fan of Japanese vehicles for the mix of compactly packaged capability and fuel efficiency. Turns out, though, that you can get that stuff in a well-tested American vehicle for thousands of dollars less. The Edmunds review exaggerates all kinds of perceived shortcomings while ignoring the fact that you get a compact, capable AWD crossover for 20k. Yet, if you read the review for the Crosstrek, they claim it somehow has "relatively strong off-road capabilities" right off the bat, despite its Pinocchio-like nose that you'll scrape just backing out of your driveway and 55-series tires.

To start, the "pro" review is shockingly inaccurate. The vast majority of 2015 patriots are have Auto transmissions as Jeep has tossed the CVT. The 4x4 comes with a competitive 2.5L engine. 5yrs ago Jeep interiors may have been cheap, but the 2015 interior is great! As an architect I love the way things are designed simply and functionally, no rediculous curves and swoopes, no air ducts that you can't aim in certain directions, spacious cabin, efficent cargo bed unlike the Nissan Juke. Back seats fold flat unlike the Honda CR-V. I love the illuminated cupholders. Great features at a great price, the latitude has heated seats, reclining rear seats, audio controls, 115V outlet, remote start, ht. adjustable seat and much more. I got 30mpg driving from Denver to WY and back. That's a 4000ft elevation gain. With 4WD you have the benefit of being in 2WD 95% of the time and getting better gas mileage than AWD cars (while in 2WD) and better 4wd performance while in 4wd. 16 months in, I have only gone in for 2 oil changes, no other repairs/maintenance. Driving in Colorado and skiing every weekend, I have yet to encounter snow I can't get through. My coworkers subaru has been challenged several times due to low clearance and a wide wheelbase. I've taken this on two road trips and it's super comfortable. The back is large enough that I can fold the seats down, blow up an inflatable mattress and camp in my car in comfort (so many pillows!)

Peppy n' Fun 2 Drive

The prosumer review was all negative. Blah blah! I got into a near the bottom of the line model and still impressed. The 2.4 when mated to the 5M is fun to drive. Much quicker than a Mazda 5 and Rav4. Best part is for what I paid I am not hesitant to take it off the road. Taking a $30k Subaru or Rav4 offroad? NO way. Another thing I like was availability of the manual trans. The others don't offer that. Every other sensible suv out there has gone up-market the Patriot stays true. Manual everything if you want it that way. It's lighter and faster. So name your poison!

I have a 2015 Patriot Sport with the Altitude package. The dealership was great and my patriot looks amazing all blacked out with the factory tinted windows and 17" all black wheels. Even though it is only FWD it can handle dirt/gravel roads no problem. That includes offroading as long as there isn't any deep mud or large boulders. So far I have had no build or mechanical issues whatsoever. Some people complain about the CVT but I love it, especially paired with the autoshifter. You can get better than listed mpg with proper driving and shifting with the autoshifter.
