Stay Away from the 2008 Jeep Patriot

2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have replaced everything in the front end of this vehicle. I have owned it 6 months and in that 6 months, stab links, barrings, ball joints, inner and outer tie rods, struts (twice), the spark plugs and it needs coils but there 40$ a piece have not got there yet. Now after the front end problems it still creaks and squeaks it makes crazy sounds.
it likes to hesitate when you push the gas. It just wont go and it stutters like it wants to stall but it does not YET. i dont get it and no garages do either. One said it was a misfire in the piston. GREAT! i would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. it makes so many sounds and even after it is all "fixed" it still remains making unknown sounds
Nothing, I hate this car and i have an appointment with the dealership i bought it from on monday because i have only had it for almost 6 months and it needs so much work.
i contacted the BBB and they got ahold of the dealership and they said they want to "fix" my problem
Only way they will fix my problem is if they take it back and let me get a whole entire new vehicle
This Vehicle has HORRIBLE front end problems. FRONT SUSPENSION is terrible. They need to do something about that. And also the engine misfire, transmission hesitation. Who knows what it is. At least make it determinable so that a mechanic can figure it out! It wont even throw a code so no one knows whats going on?
