A lot of BANG for little $$$

2009 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Living Houston, and the horrible commutes to and from work, this little Jeep does pretty well with an average of 19.8 mpg. Even though it is a little sluggish from a stop it is a very light and responsive vehicle that really climbs up the speedometer fast! The roominess of the cabin great and sits comfortably with plenty of leg room to spare. The Life Time warranty on the power train is the best around. The in-dash compass and audible signals for gas and oil change are handy. The Sirius radio, navigation system, Blue Tooth, etc… in this device are very nice additions in “creature features”. It has a “Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat” which really shimmers in the sunlight. Very nice Jeep!
The rearview mirror seems to cause a blind spot, the sun visors could have been re-thought as I would like them to have a sliding extension inside the visor like other vehicles instead of the whole visor sliding which still lets the sun in. The cabin it a bit noisy from the road, but it is a Jeep
