Not bad for the buck

2007 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Owned the Patriot for over 2 years now. Gas millage wasn't very good till about 15,000 miles. Ran it through the mountains west of Denver Co. and that broke in that tight little engine. If I try I can get 27 to 28 MPG around town and oddly enough about the same on the road at 75 MPH. 32 MPG at 55 MPH. There are a lot of little things I would like different but you get used to how things are. To date I have had no issues with this unit. Everything seems to be working well. It even made the 11,003 foot climb on Interstate 70 west of Denver Co. with no problem. I reset the millage calculator on the down side of the mountain and got 437 MPG coasting. Beat that.
MP3 player connection, 115 volt plug, driver info center, deep dash board, fold down seats including the front passenger seat. What a plus. I can get a 8' step ladder in that little bugger. Or like a week ago, a 50 gal. water heater. Love the headlights, great visibility.
Gas tank, without any question. Need a bigger one.
