Everyone loves riots
By RiotDan on
2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I've had a wrangler for 6 years and loved every minute of it. However, just like everyone else loosing money at the pump, i needed something a little more gpm friendly. Depressed, i looked at sedans and small trucks until i saw the riot. i did cartwheels as the dealer told me i could have the fuel eco i wanted and still parade around in my American build 4 banger with teeth.
I've had a stick vehicle so getting used to an auto is tough. However, i like the fact that i can quickly drop the riot in to a lower gear with the autostick for a quick pick up in speed. The riot is incredibly roomy as well. As unpopular as they are, i think the seats are very comfortable.
the gas tank is actually kinda small. I only had a 14 gal on my wrangler but it seems that the 2 gal difference to the patriot is noticeable. i still get 20 mpg but not for as long as i want.
