2010 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my Patriot new. It came w/ CVT which takes some time to get used to, but once you manage it, it's a great feature. I liked the selection of trims. You can get bone stock w/ no AC to a fully loaded Limited. I picked a package that fit my needs which includes power locks, mirrors, windows, AC and cruise control. Folding rear and passenger seats provide tons of space to carry oversized items. It has best fuel economy in its class. Depending on the trim you choose, you can get 30+ mpg hwy. Great vehicle for any outdoor adventures! However, it is known for weak/cheap front suspension components which go bad at around 40k+ miles and water leaks. For more info check out jeeppatriot forum.
Great MPG. Folding rear and passenger seats. Boxy, rugged looks remind of the legendary Jeep Cherokee. Love its Freedom Drive System which is great in all weather conditions.
Bigger gas tank. Better quality front suspension components. Tow package w/ hitch and oil cooler should come standard. Cheaper add on features such as skid plates and fog lights.
