Nice Car for the Money

Vehicle2011 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewPicked up our new base model Patriot at NW Jeep about a month ago. Bought the cherry pearl with black interior. Very nice paint combo. Nicely laid-out interior. We paid $13,100 for the base model with air conditioning.
Best FeaturesThe 2.0 with the manual transmission is a great commuter car. It is fun to drive and roomy inside. Standard radio sounds pretty good and has four big speakers. I got 27.5 MPG on my first tank of mixed driving and 27 on the second. We live up in the hills of Oregon. If it gets 28 MPG or 29 MPG with mixed driving once the engine breaks in, I'll be happy. Our car has manual door locks and windows, which is taking some getting used to. The Patriot can definitely seat 4 adults very comfortably. The cargo space is good sized.
Worst FeaturesThe Patriot could use a little bit bigger gas tank. It only holds 13.6 gallons. Visibility out the back window could be a little better. Make remote entry, auto door locks and windows standard on all models. Overall, happy with purchase.
