2007 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
This is my first Jeep and it is great! I always liked Jeep but never liked the mileage they got. Quiet, smooth, solid, affordable 4x4 ride. I did not experience any excessive road noise. Fun to drive, lots of comments on its great looks. With a 13.5 gallon tank it doesn't break the bank on fillups. The mileage keeps getting better the more I drive it. In driving to Tennessee it took the mountains with ease. Although it isn't a speed demon off the line,the engine is adequate for the vehicle, handles well. If you looking for more speed and power, then don't purchase an economy vehicle and wish it had more power. Plenty of storage room, I like the wide dash. Jeep has a winner with the Patriot!
Looks and styling. Comfortable thick seats, safety conveniences, lots of backseat legroom, full back seat for passengers, disc brakes all around. 4x4 trans, not found in this price range in other vehicles. I researched all, and this came in way under anything else on the market. Jeep dependablity.
Locking glove box, open rear window. locking gear shift on automatic trans (if hit accidently by hand shifter moves out of gear)
