2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought the 2008 Patriot Sport 4x4 2.4L CVT automatic brand new. About a month into owning it we noticed water coming in and collecting in the front courtesy light lens after it had rained the night before. We realized this when we hit the brakes to stop and water poured out onto dash and soaked us both. Took it to the dealer and of course the dealer could not duplicate the problem. This was the first of 4 trips to the dealer for this problem. The 2nd time they said it was the sunroof leaking so they replaced it. The 3rd time it had to go back they FINALLY dropped the headliner and let a hose run on it all day to find the leak. still leaks to this day and now its out of warranty..
Needed a ball joint at 18k miles ($300 for the part as it was 2 days out of waranty and the dealer wouldnt take care of us in the least little bit had to replace it myself, broke down on my pregnant wife driving my 2 year old around because water leaking from the sunroof soaked the traction control module and it only has 33k..cant get rid of this thing fast enough..
