Money Pit... Eats tires!
By ginahweenah on

Vehicle

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

We bought our Patriot new off the lot with 28 miles on it. We've put a new set of tires on it yearly as it tears up the inside of the front tires despite getting them rotated every two months. We have had to replace something for the rack and pinion steering on the passenger side and a tie rod twice on the passenger side. Looking to trade in and go back to Toyota. Will NEVER buy a Jeep again!

Best Features

Great gas mileage.

Worst Features

How about a recall on the faulty rack and pinion steering and the tie rods that keep going. And whatever it is that eats up the front tires? I'm also more than a little disappointed that you chose a strange size tire that costs $140+ per tire to replace. Shame on you!

That right there is a bad service department. The wearig down of the tires is from a bad alignment or they just didnt do one. After a tie rod replacement a alignment is needed. Also 140 per tire is a pretty good price. before venting about something do some research on the compitition.People tend tocomplain about things they nothing about.
