2010 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I have the Sport 2.0 L with the 5 speed manual and have had great results. The editors of all the car magazines don't like this car, but they compare it to cars that cost $15K more. This is an excellent working person's car, great mileage in town, and enough engine for highway cruising. In 4th gear it climbs long hills at 55 without any problem. My insurance rate went down by $20 a month because of this car's great safety features. And if you're a big guy like me, it has a lot of room. One caveat, I got the manual transmission because Chrysler seems to have a hard time making a decent automatic transmission, but I like the feel of the manual. One practical vehicle.
Higher clearance is nice for hopping snow drifts. Aux input on stereo is nice.
Bring the center console a little higher. Hard to reach my caffeine when driving to work.
