2011 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
This Jeep is not made for going thru mountains.
When still under warranty and 4 different trips, traveling from Phx to Flagstaff AZ to see family
in the hot summer,
would lose ALL power, coasted to side of road, wait till engine cooled and. nothing they could but but add another raditaor under front bumper, but I had to pay for it $300.
My husband is a disabled vet.
The V.A. in Prescott az bought a fleet of these jeeps, and the V.A. is not happy.
When they had to travel thru mountains to do in home care, overheating,
V.A. contacted Chrysler,
theres nothing we can about the problem !
13 gal tank don't get far.
V.A. uses different, cars now & bolts to remove, air cleaners!
Larger gas tanks,
Clips to remove air cleaner , some models have about 6 bolts to remove cover to get to air cleaner cover.
Barrel shape air clean, you have to order and Jiffy Lube don't replace or stock them.
