The 2.4L 4 cyl. is a nice motor if underpowered. I am 6 foot 5 inches tall and fit very nicely in my Patriot with the height adjustable seat. While the wind noise is disturbing, the car does travel well and get pretty good fuel mileage for an AWD car. Overall on of the most entertaining cars I have owned.
radio, heated, height adjustable seat, AWD with 4X4 lock.
improve the CVT transmission, we chose a 5 speed because the quality wasn't obvious in the Automatic. Along the same line, I would have like to have the option of the extra inch of ground clearance with the 5 speed and perhaps a two speed transfer case.
