We love our Patriot...we own 2 other Jeeps (Wrangler and Commache) and although I love my Wrangler i would have to say the Patriot is a very close second. We love the comfort for road trips and the mileage is not bad either. Will always purchase Jeep products in the future for their reliabily (99 Wrangler has 180,000 miles on it and have only had to replace the water pump). The styling on the Patriot gets a lot of good comments from stangers while out. We are totally satisfied with our purchase have recommended the Jeep Patriot to others.
