2009 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I have had My Patriot for 2 months now and have had no complaints. Handling is a little vague at times and I am still getting used to the blind spot. However it is reliable, comfortable to drive and easy to maneuver. I am averaging about 25 mpg in combination city highway driving. The 4WD does handle well in the snow and I like the stability, traction control and airbag safety features. It is a basic SUV but it serves its purpose and makes a good second car. I would buy another one
4 WD, stability/traction control, airbags I have the Sport model with the Wheel Group and 4 WD with CVT transmission, I also like the autostick and flashlight in the back. I liked the color choices, The one I bought is Sunburst Orange with a tan interior.
Blind Spot takes some getting used to. I have a routine I go through to make sure no cars are in the blind spot prior to changing lanes
