I've owned my Patriot now for a month and a half and have 2500 miles on it. I love it so far and have taken one summer trip to the beach. This is a great SUV for fuel economy and price! I only wish they had given me cruise and a smarter VIC. I got a good amount of features and it makes for a great car. Love the headroom being 6' tall and the dash is great! Lots of little storage places and I love the solid rear storage floor rather than a stain-possible cloth. A must have for compact SUVs.
I love the auxiliary jack and the outlet! The keyless entry has impressive range as well, from about 100 yards I unlocked my car. Auto-dim rear view is a must.
Cruise control in power features. Smarter Vehicle Information Center-tire pressure monitor does not adjust to cold weather. More rear storage would be great also, it's a very short SUV. And I'm just used to V-6 power, needs a little more umph.
