2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Purchased this CAR a year ago. I have put 12k miles on it taking it to 54k. Hesitates on take-off. Most of the time I don't feel comfortable pulling in to traffic. Recently I started getting the creaking sound from the front end. Ended up having to replace both ball joints and control arms (since they are not sold separately) and a tie rod. $780. Looking for something else. Went from a Mustang Convertible to this. Just goes to show, don't marry the rebound girl. If you're looking for a Jeep, this is not it. This is a crappy old Dodge in knockoff Jeep clothing. So disappointed.
