2008 Jeep Patriot SUV Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We bought a 5 speed Limited after driving numerous others including the ridiculously over-priced Escape Hybrid. That Pat blew them away in price, MPG and styling. On summer blend fuel it gets 32 in combi driving and up to 34 on the open hwy. Winter blends about 30 combi. No problems and it's cheaper to insure than an Escort hatchback (that one really shocked me). I've had it in the hwy, city, and mountains and it performs well in all venues. This is one of Chrysler's best kept secrets..


Best Features

Love the handling and the 5 speed. The high MPGs is a great plus.


Worst Features

A little refining of the interior would be nice, but it is a Jeep, not a 300....

Review

I was sort of stuck with the purchase of the Patriot because of credit and wasn't sure if it was the "One for me" but it turns out its the best thing that I have ever bought. While the interior needs a bit of work (on the base model at least), I haven't had any complaints. I live in the northern part of BC where we get massive amounts of snow every year and haven't got stuck or spun out once. We have nicknamed it the little tank! We can literally go anywhere. I do agree with others that there is a lot of road noise but with 2 kids and a dog we hardly notice. When its time to trade her in I will be looking at Jeep again!


Best Features

The "go anywhere" ability of the vehicle. Very important in the North.


Worst Features

Interior design. Its a bit cramped with 2 car seats in the back (especially when you have to cram another adult but in the back)

Review

Purchased a new Jeep Patriot with all the bells and whistles for my wife. It's a nice ride around town and comfortable on long trips. The gas tank is small but the good gas mileage makes up for it. The price is so good I think I'm going to get in for my son.


Best Features

Navigation and hands free phone system is wonderful. Sound system is first class and sirus radio is good for long trips. The transmission shifting is different than most car but I found I hit a break less than my other car which helps save gas.Controls,cup holders,armrest & storage are in the place.


Worst Features

Only thing in do not like is the rear window and the black tinting around it.

Review

I commute 100 miles a day round trip and it doesn't beat you up. traded in the Subaru outback, and am very pleased with MPG (26-28) compared to sticker rating. I like the non carpet in the back, we have 2 large dogs. Visibility is great compared to other models. Tested out the 4x4 today and worked fine in the snow/ice. When my other SUV gets retired soon, I plan on purchasing another patriot (4x2).


Best Features

MPG, controls are easy to get at.


Worst Features

Roof rack to have cross arms standard. no option to plug in Ipod on 6 disc changer.

Review

I normally do not take the time to provide feedback, but feel obligated, given I often look at others opinions before buying. In short, this car is excellent! You can't go wrong. I've owned it almost a year now. No problems whatsoever. It's fun to drive, responsive and intelligently designed. The on board computer display is a nice feature (forget what it's called), as it not only gives you the outside temp,but warns you of such things as low tire pressure, etc. I'm ave about 26 to 28 mpg.


Best Features

Solidly built and responsive.
