2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We've had 4 winter storms to date. Last storm dumped 10 inches. Drove home with no problems-slight slip in the intersections, but even our 97 Expedition slipped in that too. Very capable in the snow! Used 4WD lock to get in the driveway-works great! My husband loves mine so much, we just got him one yesterday-stripper for $17K-how can you beat that for the milage and 4WD? Even the vinyl seats don't feel cheap-looks like leather. Still has side impact airbags, ABS, electronic stablility control, tire pressure alarm light and outside temp guage. A lot of bang for the buck- plus it's a nice Marine blue-very sharp! Looking forward to better milage. Trading 96 RAV 4 that's only getting 20MPG.
Lots of bang for the buck-unlimited powertrain warrentee. Nice seats, easy clean up. Roominess made us choose this over a Compass-better headroom and far larger trunk space. Ease of getting in and out of. Our second Patriot-just got mine last month. Great ride, smooth manual tranny (such a plus!)
Rear floor mats that stay in place- they need anchors or something. My kids easily slip the all weather floor mats out of place. I think it's great that Jeep gives people the option of getting a manual tranny truck with nice options, not like other companies that shove you into an auto transmission.
