2011 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
It's a nice little SUV. Rides like a car on the streets but feels more like an SUV when it comes to riding on rough roads. Go with the 215/225 tires for best ride. The 2.4 litter engine is adequate on power and it never disappoints for everyday driving. The CVT transmission needs time to get used to because at first it's buzzy but after a couple of hundred miles the Engine/Cvt settle down and it becomes nice and smooth on sound.
The interior is very nice, you definitely know you're in a Jeep. It feels very roomy considering it's a smaller SUV.
The exterior is very nice from all angles. I've gotten nothing but compliments from friends. Someone said it looks like a mini Hummer H2. It does!
Great Value for the price.
Look of the car, styling on all angles.
Very nice interior, surprisingly not cheap looking.
Very solid ride, especially over rough roads, probably the main reason I bought this car over the other competitors.
Easy to drive.
Good fuel economy.
