Overall very good, despite some problems
By DR Wilson on

Vehicle

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

Review

We are very happy with our Patriot, overall. Have had a few problems, such as manual trans synchros (recall) as it was grinding while shifting gears. This was done before the first oil change- 2000 Miles! Otherwise, a great vehicle; great fuel economy, comfortable, peppy for a 2.4l. Also had check engine light on, dealer replaced the O2 sensor and has a rad leak when very cold; will take it in for a new rad next week. The windows are narrow, leaving for blind spots. Overall good quality for the price; small problems easily fixed under warranty. For the record, I am a Journeyman mechanic of 20+ years & a former automotive instructor at a technical school so my technical knowledge is strong.

Favorite Features

Excellent fuel economy, in the range of 40 MPG HWY. Comfortable ride considering the suspension system (4X4). Fairly roomy, decent acceleration (manual trans), great stereo.

Suggested Improvements

Some quality issues(listed above) although the dealer has been very good in fixing them. Blind spots are a problem due to the narrow windows. Has no power door lock control on the passenger side. (That's pretty cheap, Jeep!) The rear view mirror is too far away due to large dash; hard to adjust.
