2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I just purchased a Patriot-traded my 05 Xterra after it started leaking oil at 23K. Really like the Patriot-great combo of family utility, 4WD, and roominess for a reasonable price. Impressed with the sticker gas mileage. Was able to get a moonroof, outside temp guage and tire pressure monitor for under 21K. I'm really glad Jeep still offers a 5 speed. So tired of getting auto trannys crammed down my throat! Jeep offers a lot of bang for the buck-for those who want a roomy family friendly 4WD, take one for a test drive-you'll be suprised! I couldn't believe all of the features it has for the money. Can't beat the lifetime powertrain warrenttee. Extending the bumper 2 bumper isn't 2 expensive
Manual tranny, outside temp thermometer, moonroof, nice stock radio, ease of entry into the vehicle, roomy cabin, great all around vehicle- lifetime powertrain warrenttee, and a bumper to bumper warrentee upgrade that doesn't break the bank. Looking forward to the promised gas mileage- only have 170mi.
6 speed manual tranny, black paint on doors like the compass to resist fingerprints/scratches, body molding on outside of doors to resist dents from other cars. Utlity bin for space around spare tire for storage.
