2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Got my '09 Patriot 4WD and love it. The CVT transmission is peppy, and the vehicle handles my bumpy twisty back roads wonderfully. It's sure-footed in foul weather, and really well-equipped for the price ($5-7K less than comparably equipped CRV or Forester, + LIFETIME powertrain warranty!) I'm happy with my Pat! If you're in the market, put it on your must drive list.
Good MPG for 4WD (avg 23-25mpg) CVT transmission Comfortable seats front and rear fold-flat front passenger seat
