Several Problems - Water and Automatic Transmission
By ondago on
2007 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this vehicle brand new in the summer of 2007.
The first ice storm that winter, I got water leaking in through the sun roof to the interior lights which then went all over the dashboard through the radio and electronics.
Dealer took care of the problem under warranty.
At only 125,000 kms (less than 3 years old) I had to replace the transmission.
Dealer also took care of this even though the car wasn't under warranty - I paid the value of labor.
Still the transmission slips on acceleration, not sure how long this one will last.
Dealership has been fantastic but will admit the vehicle itself is a bit of a lemon but I love the brand Jeep.
So very disappointed in this vehicle.
Leather interior, heated seats, acoustics, comfort and lumbar support and space for all my stuff.
Gas mileage, transmission, bigger fuel tank, better placement of cup holders and the storage in the mid-console - stuff flies out of there all the time.
