first new car
By kristy on
2010 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Went from Avalanche to Patriot, nice, comfortable, caught my eye once I realized I wanted some toys over size. It is easy to drive, awesome stereo, way better than expected. A little road noisy accelerating, but once to speed, quiets down to normal. Turning radius is pretty good, haven't tried everything yet. Very happy with my choice, as I was shopping for a Liberty. Definitely worth considering for new family, not intended for real tall people however, there is sufficient head room
Stereo and screen display, voice activation, nice leather seats, metallic black paint, placement of stereo buttons on the steering wheel, gas mileage good.
Cup holders too low, coffee handle rocks due to lack of space. Steering lever latch could have smaller movement, I nearly broke it getting out when it was down. Bigger tires, sit up a little higher. Quieter acceleration, 4 WD price just a tad high for the size of the car.
