2007 Jeep Patriot SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've enjoyed driving our 2007 Jeep Patriot 4x4 and have driven it carefully. Now after 70k miles I have two major repairs: 1) every pulley (alternator, two tensioners, air compressor) have bearings that have failed (and you cannot purchase just the part of the part - its all or nothing, baby!). 2)Also the front end is failing with the left ball joint out and the right not far behind. $2,200 after 70k miles is a little premature. Outside of that it has been a good vehicle except it has too much road noise.


Best Features

entertainment system, 4x4 ease, comfort features


Worst Features

Chrysler / Jeep needs to become more reliable. I get it that they want to stand behind their vehicles with the Limited Lifetime Power Train Warrantee. But doggone it this is the second vehicle I've had with the Chrysler name on it that has just plain cost me too much to own!

Review

Bought this vehicle brand new in the summer of 2007. The first ice storm that winter, I got water leaking in through the sun roof to the interior lights which then went all over the dashboard through the radio and electronics. Dealer took care of the problem under warranty. At only 125,000 kms (less than 3 years old) I had to replace the transmission. Dealer also took care of this even though the car wasn't under warranty - I paid the value of labor. Still the transmission slips on acceleration, not sure how long this one will last. Dealership has been fantastic but will admit the vehicle itself is a bit of a lemon but I love the brand Jeep. So very disappointed in this vehicle.


Best Features

Leather interior, heated seats, acoustics, comfort and lumbar support and space for all my stuff.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, transmission, bigger fuel tank, better placement of cup holders and the storage in the mid-console - stuff flies out of there all the time.

Review

I bought this new in 2007 3 weeks before they offered the lifetime powertrain warranty. Now, at 56k miles, it needs a new transmission. This is after the control arm and tie rod failures that were covered (thankfully) under the 3/36 warranty. I understand that it's out of warranty now. But, a new transmission on a 3 y/o car with only 56k miles? Really? Chrysler customer service have also been real jerks. I called them for 'payment assistance' at the recommendation of the dealer and they've promised me a response by 'the end of the day' for five days straight.

Review

when I needed a new car 3 years ago I spent weeks online looking over reviews of the Jeep, the Nitro, the Xterra and a few others. Then I test drove a few and settled on the Jeep Patriot Limited and I've never been happier. There was one issue with the sunroof leaking but that is all, nothing else has ever gone wrong with this car in 3.5 years. As others have mentioned, this car comes packed with features at a price thousands of dollars less than competitors. The interior styling in Black, gray, and silver is basic but very nicely done. All of the features, from the 4 wheel drive to the heated seats perform beautifully time and time again.


Best Features

The value for the price. The limited edition Jeep Patriot is about 3,000 or 4,000 dollars less than similar vehicles from other companies.


Worst Features

One odd thing, even with the limited edition the seats are still manually operated and squeezing your hand between the seat and the door to use the manual knobs is awkward, really should have electric controls for the seat adjustment.
