Nothing like the Wrangler
By jagnag on
2008 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Bought the Patriot because we loved the Wrangler, but have had many problems: Overheats at 65 MPH so we don't take it on many family trips which is why we bought it in the first place. We have taken it to dealers and they can't figure out why...........Currently A/C isn't working well and the back passenger window will not close. Issues with Ball Bearings and just the ways it slurps gas gives this a failing grade.
I had the same problem with it overheating. i couldn't drive it for more than an hour on the highway. I thought it was the cvt transmission.... ended up being a break sensor malfunctioning. The car would think I was in park driving down the highway. It would shut down and I would have to pull over and wait a half hour or so. I fought with the dealer for almost 2 years trying to find this problem.
