My first Jeep Patriot was a 2007, 2.4L Sport.
I thought it was great compared to its replacement, a 2000 Jeep Cherokee.
After a few years, no longer impressed with its ride.
No problems anywhere else.
Once the redesign came out for 2011, I had to go see it.
The ride is so much better!
The 2007 is like riding in a truck where the 2011 is like driving in a car that handles well, quite, and great features!
I bought the Latitude with the 2.0L engine for 20K.
I have 21K miles on it now after 1 year, and I'm still impressed with the comfort and value and quality of this Jeep.
