2007 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I've owned at least 6 Jeeps (new and used) in the last 10 years. This Jeep is a blast to drive (it's loaded with all the features you could ask for). Best mileage to date was 32 mpg (highway) and averaging 25 mpg in the city. Bought mine 2 1/2 weeks ago and have over 2500 miles on it. Too new to have experienced any reliability issues yet, but haven't got any rattles yet! Had a 1998 Cherokee, but this one is better. The Inferno Red always gets positive comments.
This one is loaded with all the toys and the BlueTooth hands free is great, Navigation is very useful, 6-disc player and Sirius Sat radio is great.
Bigger gas tank would be a big plus...13.5 gals doesn't go very far even at 29 mpg (the normal mpg I've been getting). Only other thing is the liftgate is a very mild nusance when my head bumps it.
