true utility vehicle
By ledwic on
2012 Jeep Patriot Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
Jeep patriot sport 4cyl 2wd.
Im in agricultural sales, so I dont drive all highway.
I drive pastures, dirt road, highway and city. This Jeep is my office.
Its my first Jeep to ever own.
Its also my first small car to ever own.
I had to buy this for work.
I drive a 3/4 ton truck otherwise.
The fuel mileage is great (27mpg on average).
Bought new for a great price.
Have put over 10000 miles on in less than 3 months.
It drives great over all kinds of terrain (highway, city, dirt roads, and pasture).
It performs like u would hope a Jeep would.
For a small SUV it has plenty of room to haul many kinds of items. I am truly surprised to be happy with this car
Fuel Mileage (27mpg)
Peppy for a four banger
Roomy (for a car this size)
Versatile (Hauls people and items well)
Great on and off road
Doesnt look like every other small SUV
Highway road noise.
On Texas highways the roads have large asphalt pieces placed on top of alot of the road.
So its noisy on alot of the black top.
On a smooth pavement its fine.
I switched to a full synthetic motor oil.
The car was telling me to change my oil way to often before.
I dont have time to stop and change my oil every 2500 miles.
So far full synthetic has stopped that problem
