2008 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this for the wife so she could have a safer vehicle for our winters. Winter isn't here yet but we sure love how it drives right now! Nimble steering and great highway ride comfort are 2 big pluses in our book. Gas mileage is about what we expected so we can't complain. (it's not even broke in yet!) So far, all we can say is: bring on the snow.
Exterior appearance is eye-catching. Tons of room on the interior, even for big and tall guys. The CVT seems to flow smooth as glass with no notable lag on the highway.
Slightly bland interior treatments. Could use a little more styling. Rear cargo door needs to extend up higher than it presently does. A 6-ft tall person can hit their head on this if they are not careful.
