2007 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
This vehicle was a manufacturer buyback. It has been nothing but a major headache and stress producer. The engine is way underpowered for the body size. The seats quickly became very uncomfortable. The transmission keeps overheating and Chrysler has replace all the cheap parts but refuses to replace the actual transmission which is obviously the problem. Stay away.
It's good in the snow.
it needs alot more power. It probably needs a 5 or 6 speed transmission also instead of the wimpy 4 speed.
