2007 Jeep Patriot SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Owned the Patriot for over 2 years now. Gas millage wasn't very good till about 15,000 miles. Ran it through the mountains west of Denver Co. and that broke in that tight little engine. If I try I can get 27 to 28 MPG around town and oddly enough about the same on the road at 75 MPH. 32 MPG at 55 MPH. There are a lot of little things I would like different but you get used to how things are. To date I have had no issues with this unit. Everything seems to be working well. It even made the 11,003 foot climb on Interstate 70 west of Denver Co. with no problem. I reset the millage calculator on the down side of the mountain and got 437 MPG coasting. Beat that.
MP3 player connection, 115 volt plug, driver info center, deep dash board, fold down seats including the front passenger seat. What a plus. I can get a 8' step ladder in that little bugger. Or like a week ago, a 50 gal. water heater. Love the headlights, great visibility.
Gas tank, without any question. Need a bigger one.

We bought this Jeep due to gas mileage and overall features. We spend lots of time outside and in the mtns and this Jeep has no problems keeping up with us. Even though it is a 4cyld it can keep up with our 8cyld truck in the mtns any day. It is full of great features as well. Very easy to drive and handle on the road and plenty of space for hauling stuff. One of our favorite vehicles ever owned. It is the size of a smaller vehicle but has many of the features of a much larger one.
AC outlet in console (every vehicle should have one), Seat warmers, hard plastic back end, leather seats, roof rack, satellite radio, in dash tire pressure gauge, radio controls on steering wheel
Premium radio with 6 dish changer does not have port to hook up Ipod like standard radio

After researching the price compared to the amenities on all SUV's this size, I have found this jeep to be great. With proper maintenance, the jeep has never given me any trouble and works great when having to take it offroad. After owning it for over 2 years the only repair needed was the speakers which were on recall and I brought it in before the speakers go out. I bought the manual transmission due to the troubles still with the CVT transmissions and have no problems and getting around 32mpg. This vehicle goes long distances and goes offroad alot. I love this vehicle.
The accessory package I purchased. The jeep has more than enough places for storage and places for items for long rides.
Seat design especially in the back seat. For smaller individuals they seem to be ok, larger people who have ridden in the car have said they were a bit uncomfortable. Also a better place to place your ipod, the cord does get in the way when shifting gears.

I bought this car 4 months ago with just under 20k miles. I needed a new vehicle and fast, and the price was okay. I have regretted it ever since. The seats are horribly uncomfortable, especially for long trips. The gas milage, while not bad, isn't NEARLY as good as advertised, and the gas tank is so small it runs out in no time. I could take forever rattling off the little things that annoy me about it, but there isn't enough room. Finally, at 30k miles, I had to take the Jeep in to the dealership because the engine was misfiring. It as still under the 36k warranty, but seriously, if the thing is having problems this major at 30k, what do I have to look fwd to after warranty runs out?
