2009 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love Jeep products and was excited to buy this car. I've had it for 3 years but the little things wrong are getting annoying. 1. Leaky moonroof. I've been to the dealer 5 times, but stopped going after the warranty ran out. Water pours from the dome light after it rains. They told me it is because I park under trees and the drain pipe is plugged. I gave up and now just keep a towel handy. 2. Stalls when its cold. I'll drive down the road and get to the stop sign. I'll try to go and the engine is completely shut off. It quietly shuts down. 3. Temperature display is stuck on 73 degrees. 4. Radio is completely dead when it gets really hot out. (No display at all)


Best Features

I love how comfortable and roomy the car is. I've taken it camping and across country on a road trip. The car is fun to drive! I got the high end sound system and music sounds amazing! I do LOVE this car (except for the few bugs).


Worst Features

Fix the issues. I see the other reviews and I know that this is a design flaw or factory build issue. Can I expect a recall? Please?

Review

My 2009 Partoit has a sunroof and leaks all the time. had it to the dealer 4 times prior to today and they said to stop parking by trees. Very poor customer service and the quality of this factory installed sunroof is unacceptable. Ours is a 2 wheel drive automatic model, but edmunds only thinks this model comes with a manual tranny.


Best Features

very nice fair weather vehicle. keep it out of the rain and out of the snow.


Worst Features

get one without the sunroof.

Review

I have had my Jeep Patriot for 7 months and had an occuring problem. It only happens occasionally, and of course never when I take into the dealership. Often while waiting at a traffic light for the green light, my motor has a hesitation. "Meaning when I am at the light, foot on the break, the motor makes a noise and jumps like it is cutting off." I have to literally put the vehicle in park and wait for the light to turn, then put it in drive to go. Has anyone had this problem or know what it can be?


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, and power seats.

Review

We have 5500 miles on it and it averages about 25mpg all around. We bought the Limited FWD with the sun roof... and yep it leaked. We took it back to the dealer and they replaced it. Hope that fixed it. Drives great, fun to drive and looks good. We got the extended warranty (Max) thought it a good deal. All in all its been a great car.. gets down the road great.


Best Features

The tranny works great (CVT), color (Red) is really pretty. Good MPG, and handles good..


Worst Features

Needs a full time 12V out let for Cell Phones, Maybe electric seats.

Review

I have a tendency get into the gas a little. I'm not sure the cvt can take it. After a few quick starts, I could smell rubber burning. Fortunately, guarantee is lifetime. I've backed off the gas lately, afraid to kill this tranny in a few months. I would like to hear from other's that hit the gas a little, and have the Patriot with the cvt.


Worst Features

We'll see how this tranny holds up to a driver that needs fast acceleration for turnpike mergers and getting fast takeoff at red lights.
