2011 Jeep Patriot Latitude X 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Going from a v8 Durango to the Patriot, I was sure I was going to hate it. I'm very surprised, I love the Patriot! It hasn't let me down yet, it never fails to start even on the coldest mornings. It has made it up my steep driveway with ice and snow everytime. The CVT is so smooth, after you get used to it. We are averaging 28.5 MPG with it, which is saving us a fortune. I love the remote start! The 2.4 isn't a race winner but it is certainly adequate even on very steep inclines. So far we have had a Durango, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Town and Country, and a Pacifica. We still have the Pacifica and the Patriot and both have been trouble free and reliable.
