The Jeep Patriot is by far the best automobile purchase I have ever made. For the price, I am getting much more than I paid for the vehicle. The seats are very comfortable; I love the chrome details on the dash and other interior components; the stereo system is top notch, and, contrary to the model review, the engine is quiet and hums along at a steady pace, giving me an unheard of 30 mpg. I was not looking for a large SUV - I wanted better mileage than it would offer - so I am pleased with the cargo space and especially appreciate the rear 60/40 seat split for carting around furniture, snowboards, bikes, and even my Dalmatian.
The classic Jeep exterior design. The height: I love that I sit a bit high and can survey the road ahead. I love its power to climb my steep driveway in all types of weather. Comfortable seats. Fun to drive.
I would add as standard equipment the retractable cargo security cover to hide valuables when needed.
