Not the worst car I've ever owned

2007 Jeep Patriot Sport 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The Patriot is definitely #2 though. Glad my son is taking this thing to college. If it had a decent transmission I might like it. It drives like it has a slipping clutch. Driving it is a miserable experience. Aside from the transmission, handling is unstable, economy is so-so, the gas tank is small so range is bad, the gear selector is junk (no lockouts so it can be put in reverse at any time) and the rear liftgate is in the way of anyone over 6 feet tall. Nobody has complimented it on being roomy or comfortable. Initially everyone seems to like it, but they turn on it fast. Our daughter complains about it. She would rather ride in a '96 Voyager.

Best Features

It looks nice. Fit and finish are OK. The interior is attractive. Makes a good first impression. The engine impresses as definite progress in 4 cylinder technology. But then, save us all, they tie it up to that transmission. Our son doesn't notice, though.
