2010 Jeep Patriot Sport Fleet 4dr SUV w/Prod. End 04/10 (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
This baby hugs the curves well on my mountain highway, with a little boost from the CVT on steep side roads. It's quiet and comfortable; the heater clears all the windows well, and air circulation keeps it all fresh. There's plenty of room (and little nooks) to stash gear, tools, shopping bags. My neighbors all complimented the appearance, too!
Solid feel on the road. Some of the engine compartment is still accessible to the average do-it-herselfer. Lots of creature comforts: height-adjustable driver's seat, regular electical outlet, even lighted cup holders.
If I ate one more piece of chocolate cake, I might not fit so well into the snug seats. A cargo-area cover should be standard for security reasons, not optional.
