Happy after 17 months w/automatic transmission Lattitude
By johnred on
2011 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Lattitude w/attitude. Have 22,000 on the odometer.
Biggest gripes are small.
Interior: Bigger door pockets as in my '02 Liberty would be great
Exterior: A swing gate hatch instead of the overhead one. Again, as in the Liberty. I miss having a separate rear widow that opens. Hood has prop rather than struts to hold it up.
Guess these result in lower cost.
Many, more pluses...Great pep in the four cyl and the constant variable trans is great but noticeable in sound. Very happpy w/the MPG of
approx 27 in mixed driving. My '02 Liberty six only 17!. This Jeep moves when I ask it! Passing power with ease. Four speaker sound is fine for the non-audiophile.
Large storage area even before folding seats
Passenger front seat folds flat
Cargo light doubling as flashlight very clever & handy.
Well laid out controls and operation
Heated front seats and mirrors
Additonal power outlet between front seats
Bigger door pockets as in my '02 Liberty
Swing gate hatch like my '02 Liberty
