2007 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Have owned the '07 Patriot since April. Was the last one on the lot for '07s. Got good deal. Did a lot of reading before test driving. Was looking for a more economical vehicle- still have Dodge Dakota Quad V8 but it sits in the driveway most of the time. Kept it to haul trailer & boat. Got the fully loaded version. Seats are very comfortable-both my husband and I have bad backs and have yet experienced any problems. Drive city & highway-have just got to 3000 miles and am getting 22-26 mpg. CVT took some time getting use to-really like the fact that you can't feel the gears change.
Looks-MPG-Love the Nav system and Sirius radio and Boston sound system. U-Connect is great-and really like the auto dim on mirror. Like the fact that radio fades out when call comes in. Too hot in Texas right now to run w/ moon roof open - A/C cools inside quickly - in fact it gets cold!
Little bigger gas tank since gas is now up to $4 gal. Add some softness to the window ledges and arm rest in center-elbows get tender on long trips.
