2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have had my Patriot for a year now I love it. We have 26 inches of snow this past winter. My husband's Silverado got stuck and he used my jeep to get to work. He said he had no issues and the thing drove through the snow like nothing. I live in Pittsburgh so this thing is tested on pot holes and 12 inches of water on the ground. It has never given me a problem.
I love the four wheel drive for anyone that lives in a snow belt its great to have. I rarely used it cause this thing does well in 2 wheel.
The only thing I would change is the stupid child belt in the middle of the back seat that you can not remove. It drives me nuts when I have three adults in the back seat and only two seat belts.
