A Fun SUV
By william Ward on
2007 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We have been to the Colorado mountains to 11,000 feet elevations from Missouri at 800 feet. We got up to 30.3 MPG across Kansas, a lot of 28.8 with a very loaded car. The noise level was quiet enough to play the radio and talk with out being loud. Seats were very comfortable for us, I even have a bad back. We go off road every year with National Forest maps with every jeep we have had for 15 years, this Patriot did well also, but not as well as our Grand Cherokee. Around town we get 24.8 to 30 MPG and enjoy it. The CVT transmission took some getting use to to get better gas mileage. The Wrangler tires are wearing out at 30,000 miles even though I keep them at 40 PSI. New tires to be soon
Gas mileage, room to haul large items and to load up for our trips, we are Gas mileage is great, we are retired. The head lights are great and the fog lights are great on a rainy night and in the mountains at night. The seats are very supportive.
More than one key lock, need one each side and on the rear hatch door. My Mercury has bottom lighted side view mirrors, very adequate and safety lighting at night. The day time running lights should be able to turn off, we have a lighted display park in town where only parking lights are used.
