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


I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot with 58,000 miles. I have to replace the transmission and ball joints for total cost of $4700. The 2000 Jeep Patriot has a 5 year or 100,000 mile warranty but it is not transferable to this 2nd owner. I have talked to Jeep but with no success. If you check out the internet you will see that is a typical problem with the Jeep Patriot and Compass. Save yourself a lot of money and aggravation do not buy this vehicle.

Worst Features

They have eliminated the CVT transmission in the 2004 model. There must be a reason why. I have not heard whether they have addressed the ball joint problem yet.
