14 months and 18,000 miles after purchase I have no regrets. The patriot is a versatile vehicle that is good! On gas, in foll weather, on the purchase price and oddly enough ( resale value ) because its a Jeep. This Jeep is fun to drive to the local store and comfortable on a 500 mile trip. Avg. 23 to 27 mpg. With the 2.4 engine and CVT trans. Before purchase I also drove, cr-v, rav4 and Forester. The patriot was the hardest to take back and when I did I bought it. No regrets.
Cool traditional looks, car-like handling and ride, standard radio, 17" alloy wheels and tires, CVT, seats, buttons and nobs.
Larger storage compartments in doors. Book and map storage on rear of front seat.
