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