I purchased an 07 Patriot a couple of months back. I do like the fuel economy! getting around 29mpg with 89 octane 2.4 litre engine, 5speed, 2wd. I am impressed with what I got for the money so far, The surf blue clear coat paint is beautiful! and I like the convenience of the vinyl interior. This is the 5th Jeep vehicle I have owned and although its not the toughest off roader it suits 100 mile daily highway trips just fine. The center console is kinda awkward though, the armrest doesn't seem to meet up with your elbow just right and the cup holder is on the floor board pretty much. Other than that it is a blast to drive and mine has no power options, no cruise no fancy things period
traction control, 4 airbags, paint color, jeep styling, gas mileage, 5 speed shift position, the lighting of the gauges, interior style
center console! Make the arm rest meet an arm and get the cup holder off of the ground! (gotta add the cell phone holder in the arm rest is a cool touch!
