I got my used 08 Patriot W/48k back in early Sep.09. For the first 3 months I did not have any problems with it and overall is nice to drive and gets good mpg. Then one day I was driving and a light came on and my jeep was slowing down and lost a lot of its power. So I looked it up and it was the (ETC)electronic throttle control. I kept having problems with it so i brought it in and found out that the electronic throttle body needed to be replaced. From my understanding this is something that a few newer jeeps have been having some problems with. overall I am happy with my Patriot but I,m uncomfortable with the ETC cause the mechanics said w/ ECT the accelerator has a good chance of sticking
It has comfortable seats, lots of room, and good gas mileage
