Vehicle2011 Jeep Patriot Latitude X 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewMy wife's PT bit the dust & we ended up with a program 2011 Jeep Patriot. Good car. Handles well. and the fuel mileage is great. Two adults and their stuff, we got a low of 28 MPG in the hills of north Arkansas to 32.9 in the flat lands of Illinois and in Kansas. That's with the air on. The transmission takes getting used to but is not a minus after you understand there are no real gears. Want to merge, give the shifted a swat to drop down a bit and GO! Remember it's just a 2.4 not a V8. A great value . This is the the mild mannered 4WD, it's ditch rated not trail rated. Plenty good enough. This is north central Arkansas, hills' twisty roads and a lot of gravel.
Best FeaturesNothing out standing, just a plain old Good Car.
Worst FeaturesNone. For what it is it's good enough. My daughter has a Subaru Forester. Nice car a lot more money. Not a lot of difference.
