could be better, could be worse.
By Warren on


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


Rear view mirror positioned too low causing visibility problems. Plastic door finish vibrates. Lots of road noise. Water leaks in front dome light (could be front window seal?). Impossible to utilize indicator switch at night without flipping to high beam. Great gas mileage (45 imperial mpg @ 60 mph on flat highway, 30 mpg in town). Mechanical no problems whatsoever after 12,000 miles. Tremendous traction in snow.

Best Features

like the CVT with autostick. Great traction in snow and launching boat. Good looks. Good mileage. Comfortable.

Worst Features

Water leak at dome light seems to be a standard feature! Telescopic steering adjustment. Reposition the rear view mirror. Better sound proofing (road noise and engine).
